    When I asked why they were the most expensive I actually meant this.....looking at the major resale places, I don't see that the timeshare is more expensive....they all seem pretty competitive. ( not including Fidelity). So, are they selling their timeshares at a higher price than another company with the same type contract? Or are they listing that much higher than the recorded sale?

    I think you're right. I don't think the others are much different. They all move enough contracts to get a decent read on the market. But the Timeshare Store moves the most, because they've been around longer, they have more word of mouth, they advertise on the DIS, which gets a lot of traffic, etc.

    If I was selling, I'd use The Timeshare Store. Though I don't think there's anything wrong with the others, and my guess is that you'd get just as good a deal through the other large brokers.

    I would say $ 70 or less. Since you have at least a year to find a contract with points. You can't begin using it until august 2015 without borrowing.

    But I guess someone will place a higher bid!

    I just want to point out that UY does factor in to this. For a Dec UY they actually would be paying for 11 months of 2013 points and 1 month of 2014 in January of 2014. If a person were buying direct from Disney and would be getting the same first points in Dec 2014 then they would only pay one prorated month of dues once Dec 2014 rolled around. They would need to be receiving all 2013 points in order to be responsible to pay the full years worth of dues in January 2014. It should be the same for resale although most brokers do not acknowledge this.

    I think what I am trying to say is you shouldn't have to pay for maintenance fees for a year if the points are stripped.

    It sounded like you said that if there are 2014 points then you should pay the MF's on that but that is where the person would likely be over paying depending on the UY - and definitely in the case of a Dec UY. I just wanted to clarify that. If it were a Feb UY then it's not enough to really quibble about.

    I listed a contract that is a December use year and only has 1/2 the points for 2013, and I tried to explain to my husband that someone would want compensation for the points and would expect us to pay for the rest of this year for the maintenance fees. He doesn't get it, but I do. He said that's why we listed lower than others.....but I think some compensation is in order.

    I don't know if this will help you or not, but we just passed ROFR:cool1: on a contract for 100 points at AKL. There are no points for 2014 and also no mf. The seller was asking $80 per point and we offer $70. We met in the middle at $75. We will not be able to travel in 2014 so not having points didn't really bother us and it also gave us a year without having to pay a maintenance fee so it worked out for us and it was what we wanted. If you are looking for a contract with points to use in 2014, just be patient. The perfect one will come along.

    Bonjour.
    Have you considered looking at contracts w/ more points?
    There are few 100 pt. contracts -2 for AKL right now, compared to 14 contracts w/ 160 pts. for sale (there are a lot of 160 pt. contracts as that was the minimum buy in @ one pt., I believe, for AKL.)
    100 pts. at $90 each equals $9000 (6633 euro.)
    160 pts. @ $70 each equals $11300 (8328 euro.)
    If 100 is all you want, tho' just sign up to receive emails from the brokerage companies and check the resale listing sites frequently.
    Good luck.
