Original Post:
I don't know if this is a trend, just my luck or a result of the increased direct-buy prices....I have now had two BCV contracts I inquired about (one about a month ago and one last week at two different resellers) that sold for higher than the listed price. I saw the contract and called immediately and was told that several people expressed interest. I gave the reseller a price and in both cases, over the next few hours, they called/texted back the counter offer from the other potential buyers. In both cases, once the price got above the initial listed price, I backed out. I understand the reseller trying to get the highest price possible for the seller but something just didn't pass the smell test to me. Call me stubborn or stupid or maybe it was the principal of the matter. What do you DVCers think? Should I be suspicious or is it just a sign of the times?

I agree Sil. There will always be another one around the corner one day. As for Drew, I'm not worried about him...it's some of those others that I hope fit in this year!

Just look at the websites--they are getting pretty bare for some of the resorts and in the last 4 years since I have been looking at those sites, I never remember so limited availability.
I agree about the limited availability, especially for BCV. I inquired about buying direct and Disney would not even venture a guess on how long it would take.

First off, they should be more aware of the market and should be advising sellers to list for more reasonable prices. The second reason is that it is a bit of a deviation from their typical way of doing business. They are not like real estate agents who are obligated to get the best deal for their clients. They are required by law to present all offers, but they really have no obligation to entertain a bidding war. In the past a full priced offer meant the contract was sold. I'm not sure I'm comfortable with this new way of doing business. I'm definitely not comfortable with a broker provoking a bidding war by openly sharing all the active bids on a contract with the bidders.

That being said, given that I'm not an attorney I can't say that the brokers are in violation of any laws or rules. I'm simply saying that it is a pretty significant change that I'm not very comfortable with.
It has definately started tilting towards a sellers' market.

I went with Shontell Crawford (dvcbyresale). She has been great! We had our offer accepted, got our contract two hours later, and sent to ROFR the next day which was 3/19. Good luck I know you will hear soon.

Good stuff! Congrats on your HH contract too! We're definitely among the lucky this time around.

I'm so sorry to hear that. I know how you feel, our first time Disney took the contract. We really didn't think we would try again. After a week passed I couldn't help myself and looked at the resales and put an offer in. This time we passed. If this is something you really want then I think you should try again. Best of luck to you.

Passed SSR

We just passed ROFR today! SSR 160 points dec UY- Triple Loaded- All '11, '12, 13' and beyond- $66 per point- Buyer pays closing and 2013 MF

Since the 2011 points expire 11/30/13 we are toying with the idea of renting those out with daddio to supplement the cost, which would bring down the per point cost to $55.

We just went to Orlando in February but if we can swing it and the dates are open by the time we close, hubby and I may head to Aulani for a few days ALONE!! Ahhhh! Seems silly but we need an adult vacation.

Those points are going to burn a whole in my pocket!!

Congrats to all who have passed! For others who have failed, be persistent. We have failed twice at OKW, have a third try in for SSR, 225pts. $65 per, no pts. Till June 2014. Both OKW were loaded, so figured we would try this one. From what I'm seeing great deals can still be had. If we pass will be looking for a smaller contract different location, will try to get a better price! Again congrats to all hope to be one of you very soon!

Congrats! We just did the same exact thing. Our ssr contract came with 131 "extra" points. We booked a 3 night October stay for just DH and I, and sold 90 other points which will more than cover our trip expenses.

Oh, and as a sidenote, the rental took all of one day through David's. Highly recommend them!
