As I understand it, DVC is often for sale through time share resellers in the Orlando area.
I think it depends on when in time you look. Until a few years ago they were fairly active. Their usual approach has been to keep you guessing so they might buy one contract and let another go through that was exactly the same. With the economy changes, DVC (and others including Bluegreen and Marriott) basically didn't buy anything back. That's changing with many of the timeshare companies right now. BG has been fairly active in this area very recently. They'll likely have a flurry of buy backs then things will settle down for a while but the resale prices will increase temporarily.
