It won't change your use but it will slightly increase the closing costs.

This was our thought also. None of us know what is in store for us in the future.

I am happy to report that we are joining the elite world of DVC Ownership!!
We purchased 200 points at VGF! I am so very happy and excited. Cant wait to enjoy the many years of vacationing and creating memories. With 50 years, (I'll be long gone at 97 years old) but our son will be bringing our grandchildren/great grandchildren to WDW. It's great to make a purchase that will bring lots of happiness to our family for so many years to come!
CONGRATS!!! I think you made a great choice with VGF! You can still use them at AKV when you want a change but I think the 11 month mark on VGF will work wonders. Enjoy your new home! :D

resale was then as I was not as educated about resale. Live and learn.
I have learned so much on these boards and only hope to give honest feedback when warranted. The price she pays for whatever she gets is higher....it is 2013.

I do not understand why you did not calculate everyone's purchase price....since that is important to you in relevance to the OPs question.

As a very informed poster, you and Missyrose bring a lot to the DVC discussion on this forum. You both pick on folks a bit, too.
I'm sorry that you feel like I am picking on you, because that is not my intent at all. To answer your question, knowing the price someone paid for their points adds much needed context and perspective to a discussion. The comparison isn't direct vs. resale, the comparison is direct then vs. direct now, and how much it has changed over the past 4 years. AKV direct is not inherently a bad deal. In 2009 when you first purchased the resort was new, there were fewer resales and oh yeah, you paid $52 per point LESS than what is being offered now. I don't have a problem with you, your purchase, how you use your points or anything of the sort. However, when you post about your experience (buying AKV direct and how happy you have been with it) and leave out the cost, you are leaving out a very important piece of information and it can seem a bit misleading. Buyers today are much less likely to have a similar experience as you because the cost is more than 50% higher.

If you feel badly that you purchased direct not knowing about resale then that's how you feel. But I'm certainly not trying to make you feel that way or even suggest that you made a mistake. I just think that prospective buyers should have all the information from all the different sides, that's all.

Congrats on coming to a decision. Enjoy your points!
