Last week, I contacted TSS and the agent told me twice that my offer is really low and that it's almost "unreasonable" to ask for the seller to pay MFs. I was really put off by the conversation. I feel like they are really inflating the prices right now and giving advice to buyers that makes it much harder to find the "deals" you guys are posting. Are those of you who are getting the lower prices using different brokers?

I had the same experience with them. I'm waiting on ROFR through another broker.

Can you imagine the selling/buying strategy after the extra benefits are gone. The value will certainly change. It will be interesting to watch. I'm thinking it's gone to become a buyers market.

This particular thread is probably not the right place for strategy discussions, but everyone should know that ALL of the timeshare brokers are "transaction brokers" and they work for BOTH parties to make the transaction happen. They want to see a sale go through, and close successfully, and they don't want someone to lose a contract that would be perfect for them for a couple hundred bucks.

I had the opposite interaction with TTS on a sale a few months ago -- the offer was lower than I wanted to go, but I took their advice and sold at what they considered a "fair price," because I know they have a very good handle on what will fly and what won't.

Just because someone tells us something we don't want to hear doesn't mean they are wrong.

Thanks everyone! Without the good price, we would not have been able to pull this off. I feel like we stole it. As an added bonus, we actually WANTED BWV. We prefer it to BCV or even BLT.

We used Fidelity Resales. Very nice people and helpful.

I got an e-mail from TSS today with a nice contract...

52 points. December use year. 104 points currently available (52 + 52 banked
points from 2009, banked points need to be used by 12/1/11) and 52 points
coming on 12/1/11. Closing Costs=$322 Priced at $78/pt ($4056)

It is already "sale pending", so I am hoping that one of my disboarders was able to get it!

I'm sorry, but taking a good mocking is part of being on the boards!




Basically, if you buy a resale DVC membership (not sold directly from Disney) after the 20th, the use of those points are restricted. For example they could not be used to "trade out" for a Disney Cruise.

SandeeKath.....I would ask that the broker make the offer anyway. I'm pretty sure that they are obligated to present all legitimate offers, no matter what their opinion of the offer might be.

When we put in our offer, the broker told us it was low, but that he would proceed as we asked.

Well, the seller accepted and we are now pending closing.

We used Garden View Realty....twice now, .....and I am very happy with the service they have provided.

I am currently using both TTS and the other non-Fidelity broker who is widely used. Neither agency has ever done anything other than present my low-ball offers. I am very satisfied with them both.

We have had a good experience with TTS. We just got the email today we have been waiting for since Jan. 28th when we went to ROFR.
We closed and now just need to wait for DVC to get our paperwork. Can't wait to get our membership packet and book our first trip! Thanks TSS.

That is an awesome deal! Congrats!!!
Settlement could come fast. We passed ROFR last Friday and settled today, just one week later.
Good luck!
