When making an offer on a resale....

You guys have been so helpful, thanks so much! I do have another question. We want to make an offer through resale, what typically should you offer in order to not have Disney reject it? Should we offer what they are asking or should we go lower like you would with a home? We are hoping to get this specific one that we found, so should we just offer what they're asking?
Everyone loves MikaBoo!

We found a SSR contract we liked. Asking price was $68 pp. We offered $55 and were accepted right away. We dealt with Sharon at Fidelity and she was very helpful. Good luck.

You need to study the ROFR thread and talk to your Broker.

here is a good thread to get an idea of what contracts are actually selling for (as opposed to just looking at asking prices) and what is getting ROFRed by DVC:


small contracts (50 pts or less) often go for asking prices (unless asking prices are completely crazy) and typically go very quickly (in a day or less). larger contracts are often more negotiable on price.

it also depends on whether the contract has banked pts included or is "stripped" and doesn't have any pts coming till 2014.

some of deciding on how much to offer depends on you: how badly do you want the contract and how well does the contract (size/resort/UY month) fit what you are looking for...

I'd look at the ROFR thread but wouldn't get into trying to figure out what Disney may or may not take back. They really don't take back much unless they get on a spurt. Even with that nothing is definite. Concentrate more on the negotiation with the seller and what you are comfortable paying.
