We currently have three AKV contracts (purchased direct). Weve stayed at SSR, BWV, and BCV, and enjoyed them all. VWL and OKW stays are in the plans for 2013. Im comfortable with the potential of having multiple use years, as well as managing multiple contracts. Id like another 230 points, which I want to purchase resale. My intention is to maximize savings on these additional points, and use them either at their respective home resort(s), or another on-property DVC villa. I prefer an earlier-expiring contract for additional points we purchase. That said, Ive been looking at the various resale sites for several months, and have yet to find a good contract for our needs. I think this may be because 230 points is a rather unusual number. I would not mind comprising these 230 points from more than one contract, but the closing costs on multiple contracts (rather than just one) would negate a good amount of savings (seems as if a 100 point contracts price would rise by $4+ per point when adding in closing costs). Which was all very long-winded to get to my question: how common is it for the sellers to pay closing costs? And if they do, does this have an effect on how much bargaining can be done on the per-point cost? Ive read and re-read the Anyone made it through (or not made it through) ROFR recently? thread, and see no rhyme or reason to this. Am I better off waiting for a magical 203-point contract, or would I be better off with the multi-contact, seller-pays-closing route? Id appreciate any insight into this.
