Oh, I agree, this thread is wonderful! And I also agree, it's addicting. We also were interested in AKV, but decided on SSR. If we pass, we are planning on an April visit. We will be torn between staying at SSR in a 2 bdrm or seeing at 7mo if AKV Kidani would have a 2 bdrm available. Decisions, decisions. I think we need to worry about passing first though. ;-)

Just offer what you want to pay to Fidelity on their listings, ignore the asking price, if there is an existing loan on it they will tell you that the seller needs to receive XXXX amount.

To me, the kicker that made me think they wouldn't want it is the closing was to be delayed until 12/5. I just didn't think they would want a contract that had to be held that long until they closed on it, not to mention that the price was more than others have been reporting them buying back. Argh! Curious if other people have lost contracts to Disney that had such a prolonged closing date on them.
I guess this just means mine is about to get gobbled up by the mouse!

I am waiting to hear on a 170 point BCV Feb UY contract at $70pp with 20 2013 points! I went to ROFR on 5/17.

I was told on some contracts that the seller's no longer interested in selling. But because they signed a # months contract, they have to list or pay a penalty to pull their listing. So they raise the prices really high and wait it out. Something in the contract about having to close if they bring a buyer willing to pay the listing price.

[QUOTE=jendujka;48542063]I wonder how many people don't negotiate. QUOTE]

We didnt negotiate. Contract was not up on site, I called TSS about another one and it wasn't going to work out and while on the phone he told me about one that was just about to be posted. - 185 AKL Dec UY with all 2012 banked pts and all 2013 and on at $72pp - We are to pay 2013 MF and closing.

Figured this would go fast and it was in the range we were looking at, didnt want it to get passed along. Maybe we should have tried but I didnt want to risk it going away.

Now we wait and wait and wait

That seems like a really good price for all of those points.

Totally agree. Stalking this board helped us on our recent SSR contract for 250pts. Seller wanted $60pp but since it was semi-stripped (16-2012 pts, no 2013, all 2014) we offered $50pp. They accepted immidiately and we made it through ROFR last week. Without this board I would have probably just offered what they were asking and spent an extra $2500! So thanks for everyone that contributes to the board!

One advantage you have is there is NOT a delayed closing which means Disney would have to close and pay up front for the contract now and hold it until Feb for the points before they can resell it. Good luck

That's a $56 per point difference from direct. To me, that's a deal. Now, just waiting to see if it passes.


i think that when they are priced so high...there is usually a reason. For instance, due to a divorce they may be forced to put it on the market but dont want to sell it before they get more use out of it. And some ppl mark it up....hoping that after negotiating they sell for the price they really want. No one would actually pay that price for a SSR resale. They just want the highest bid they can get.

Most of the high price listing is due to the money owed on those contracts. And then some other reason.

So when you are not busy, you call Fidelity and ask them which contracts listed have balances and which don't?

Exactly, and if you look at the board, you should be able to figure that out.
