When comparing different contracts I use a number of different methods to determine the costs of that contract. Note this is not value as value is in the wye of the beholder

I use method 1 when planning on renting out any points that come with the contract. So the formula I use is:

(($/point*#points + closing costs + any MF) - (rental rate * #points the contract has) ) / #points

I would use method 2 if I planned to use the points myself, then the formula is:

(($/point*#points + closing costs + any MF) - (Annual MF * #points the contract has) ) / #points


where
#points = the size of the contract
$/point = the price per point I'm paying
#points the contract has = how many points does the contract come with (ie assuming it is 2012 a contract with 100 2010, 200 2011 and 200 2012 would have 500 points on it)
rental rate = what I think I can rent the points out at. If the points are good for 5+ months I use $11 (use to use $10), anything less and I reduce the rate)
any MF = if I'm paying anything towards MF in the purchase



There are a couple of other things you can then do like dividing those costs by the number of years left on the contract and then adding in your annual MF to give you what your points are costing you each year.


So as an example:

BWV 300 points, comes with 530 points on Aug 2012. Price $54/point + $525 closing.

Method 1 = ( ($54/point*300 +$525) - (530points * $11/point) ) / 300 points = $36.32/point

Divide that by the number of years left (29) and you get $1.25/point/year.
Add the annual MF to that and you get $6.87/point for what you are currently paying.


Method 2 = $45.82/point

Divide that by the number of years left (29) and you get $1.58/point/year.
Add the annual MF to that and you get $7.20/point for what you are currently paying.

So this is just a number of ways to compare different contracts and different resorts on a price bases only. You can see right away though that the killer in the longer run is MF. What this also does is show how valuable getting points on your contract is without having to pay MF on them.

Add my name to the list of those receiving good news. I passed ROFR today!

My contract was 150 pts (Aug UY) @ VWL for $53/pt with buyer paying closing costs and splitting MF with seller. Contract purchased through Sharon at Fidelity.

Happy, happy...joy, joy!

Can't wait to officially join the community of DVC owners. Thanks again to everyone on this board with all of your helpful and insightful advice and encouraging support.

The non math version is "The more points you get without paying MF on them the better."

Ok that I can understand. So if I get my contract I'll have done pretty well, getting 260 MF-free points. Although 60 of those will be in a use or lose position, expiring on 1/31/13.

Great deal, hoosiermike!

We also received word we passed ROFR today (submitted 5/28).


VWL 160pts, Dec UY, 24 2010 pts banked, 160 2011 points banked, all pts going forward. Buyer pays MF and CC. $65/pt


Not the best VWL deal, but we're happy. Now to find a BCV contract.
