    Ok, Got the email on Monday that my contract was sent to Disney for ROFR. Thanks everyone for helping me, as I am still earning my ears. :)

    It's interesting that you say that. My first bid was with Fidelity, but someone has already got it and they didn't have anything else I was interested in, so I went with another broker and was told my offer was way too low. So, being very new to this process, I made a higher offer. It maxed out by budget, but I got the contract. Perhaps if I buy more points in the future I will go there first....

    Don't post much but always read the DIS. We've been looking to add on for quite some time. We own 200 points at VB and absolutely LOVE it there and the ability to book 11 months since the resort is smaller and we are huge beach fans. We also wanted something at the world to give us that 11 month window and extend our DVC membership. This went to ROFR today:

    150 pts. Saratoga Springs (Feb) $55, All '13 & '14 points, Buyer pays closing/Seller pays 2012 dues- submitted 10/31/12.

    My first contract! Woohoo!

    SSR 100 Aug 45$ - passed ROFR this week (Oct 30) :)
    BCV 210 Aug 59$ - ROFR'd last week (Oct 25) :(

    I have another one in ROFR as well, that I hadn't posted yet:

    SSR 200 Dec 57$ - 200 banked '11; 200 coming Dec '12 and forward - submitted Oct 11. Hoping to hear by next week...It's a different UY, so it'll take a bit of organization, but there just weren't many loaded contracts out there.

    Just passed ROFR. Submitted 10/1, Passed ROFR 10/30
    400 VWL (SEPT) $58 / point. No 2012, All 2013. Buyer pays closing. No fees til 2013.

    We may have paid a bit more than needed, but use year, points, and location were just what will work for us.

    The information you all have shared proved to be invaluable! Thanks to all who share even the tiniest tidbits of information! I don't think we would have been brave enough to purchase resale without all the knowledge we have accumulated on the DisBoards!

    Thanks Amy,

    I have to say that I don't think I'd be this far along if it hadn't been for all of your support! You helped me gain the confidence I needed to just get out there and start making offers. I was just looking back at my notes and emails with you from the early days, and I can't believe all the good contracts I missed out on because I hesitated (like that SSR 210 ;).

    For those of you just starting out, read everything you can, ask for advice, and use this thread to learn about what is possible pricewise on the resale market. Keep making offers and don't give up. Fidelity (Rachel) was by far the best I found for presenting offers in my price range. And don't underestimate the value in negotiating the sellers paying mf's and closing costs. Oh, and be patient!

    I was traveling for a couple of weeks and got back to great news. Two new SSR contracts passed ROFR.

    1. SSR 100 point Sept use year -- 197 points available (97 banked from 2011 & all 100 for 2012) and all 100 for 2013 and beyond. Submitted to ROFR on 9/24, passed 10/16. Paid $53 per point, buyer paid closing and buyer and seller split membership fees.

    2. SSR 200 point point Dec use year -- 400 points available 12/1/2012 (all 200 banked from 2011 & all 200 for 2012) and all 200 for 2013 and beyond. Submitted to ROFR on 10/1, passed 10/30. Paid $51 per point, seller paid closing and membership fees. Did a little better on this one, I am learning...

    Thanks to everyone in this forum for the information, It really helped me a lot to be patient, find the right contracts and wait for the right deals to come along! I did get rejected on several others, but I think patience paid off.

    Congrats! You did really, really well on these :) Your SSR 100 is one of those that "got away" because I hesitated on offering...You didn't say it, but that one was listed at 80$/pt, and I honestly didn't even consider the possibility that the seller would fathom going so low... Gotta love Fidelity!
