Stripping . . . everyone's doin' it!
Looking at the currently available contracts on the popular resale websites, it appears that few have a full compliment of current year points or any at all in many cases. There is even a smattering of contracts that don't have any points until 2015! And yet, the listing prices are not much lower than a year ago when there were more "loaded" contracts, and in many cases the list prices are higher.
It seems like now would be a good time for someone who is contemplating selling a contract or two to list them. The question is, how detrimental would it be to the final sale price to strip the contract before listing? Particularly for a 50-100 pointer.
For example, if someone had more than one UY, they could transfer the current UY points of the contract they are thinking of selling to their other contract and turn around and sell the newly stripped contract. Or one could even sell the points for a transfer before listing the contract. In the current market, it seems like that would do very little to the planned list price. This seems particularly true for contracts of 100 points or less, which usually command a premium. It probably depends on the home resort, but for small contracts, it may not matter. I'm thinking maybe $4-8 per point less than before stripping.
How do you DIS'ers think that purposely stripping a contract would impact the price per point?
ETA: I am interested in responses about stripping 2013 points, primarily. Also the impact it would have on small vs. large contracts.
