ROFR & Sales Dec '12-Jun '13

The deeds are up-to-date on the OCC web site, so here are the latest stats updated for June 2013. The posts with sale and ROFR prices per point will be coming shortly. The short version is that prices are going up across the board. Every resort's average resale prices went up by $2-$5 per point, as did the ROFR prices for the resorts where there were ROFRs.

New sales activity went way up, as expected, because of VGF. All the other resorts had lower sales except BWV, probably because the guides were occupied with VGF sales.

ROFR rate went up for VWL, BCV, BWV, and OKW. In the case of VWL, Disney took almost half the contracts!

Note to mods: I'm posting this here because I think it's useful for people contemplating a purchase. Some of these sale/ROFR data posts got moved to DVC-Mouscellaneous, and I'm not sure if it's because it's a better place for this data or because the thread veered off topic. If I should be posting them in Mousecellaneous, PM me and I'll put future posts of this type there.

One thing that I think is important to note is that the data shows up in the month that the deed was recorded. Frequently this is one or two months after the disappointed would-be buyer is informed that their contract has been taken by ROFR. So although it looks like April was the big month for ROFR activity, that is actually a reflection of DVD's activity in February and March.

Fascinating!!! It's shocking how much of the FC/BNKY action is at SSR and BLT--I wonder if the defaulted contracts simply get weeded out early and since these are newer properties they have the highest rate of people letting them go?

Yeah, this puts me in no hurry on my resale contract hunt. I might just wait till the furor dies down since we don't really need the points for our first DVC member vacay in February '14.

So, does that coincide with the Disney price increase and everyone jumping on the waitlist? And Disney then trying to fill their waitlist?

SSR, BLT and AKV are the most recent direct offerings and have had incredibly high price points compared to the other resorts when they were offered direct. Depending on when you purchased, all three of them have the potential for significant and instant depreciation of cash value. Combine that with the fact that most DVC purchases are impulse buys (many of which are financed) and are rarely researched, and you have a high foreclosure rate. If someone is going to have significant buyer's remorse it's going to be within the first few years.

But more importantly, now you know why we talk so much about making informed choices, the potential pitfalls of buying direct, the safer option of resale, etc. People may think we are being condescending, but there are 600 people this calendar year alone that probably could have benefited from that advice. Hopefully this sheds some light on why we say some of the things we do.

For the most part, yes, the two happened in the same general time frame. Many of the ROFRs came in February, but my best explanation of that is that DVD knew what was coming down the pike and was getting ready.

Nobody really knows the inner workings of DVD and more specifically the wait list. But a logical timeline that can be constructed is that DVD announced price increases across the board, buyers moved in droves to get in before the impending price increase, DVD ran out of inventory at many resorts, which forced them to put buyers on a wait list and increase their ROFR activity to fill the wait lists.

In my mind this is an oversimplification, as there is simply I lot I don't understand with regards to DVD's ROFR policy. For example, why would DVD ROFR a contract at $68 only to sell it at $115 (the profit margin is not nearly as good as one might think)? But in absence of a better explanation, it's the one I'm going with.

Hmmm....$68 to $115 with little to no work sounds like a good spread....a deal I would take without looking twice. But I'm not a finance wizard. Am I missing something?

Yes, I'm with you! Now is a good time to learn patience.

Typically timeshare costs are in the 25-40% range. So a BWV point that sells for $115 probably cost DVC somewhere around $35. In this case, they are paying $68...the profit margin is much less than usual. Put another way, they could have sold that buyer AKV which has a much higher profit margin, which is why guides typically refer to the older resorts as "sold out" when we really know that means that the initial offering sold out and they are still available (albeit with a wait list).

One other thing to consider is that at $68, DVD is making $47 in "profit" on that sale. But out of that $47 they still need to pay commissions, marketing fees, overhead, salaries, etc. When it comes down to it, ROFRing contracts at that level doesn't make anywhere near the amount of money that selling actively marketed resorts does. But, as is the case with ROFR and the inner workings of DVD, I am sure that there is something else at work that I know nothing about. But what I do know is that the profit just isn't there at these levels.

ROFR = Right Of First Refusal

When a DVC member decides to sell their contract, DVC has the first option to purchase the contract once there is an offer on the table. They generally take up to 30 days before making a final decision. It is a way for DVC to take ownership of points to then re-sell as a direct sale. This is the process during the purchase of a resale contract that generally takes the longest.

There has been a fair amount of ROFR activity recently on some of the older sold out resorts, presumably to fulfill waitlists for those resorts.
