    Wow, $57 is a recent low for AKL, great price, but that is a LOT of points, so makes sense. Congrats!!!

    I just have to say THANK YOU to everyone who has contributed to this thread and to lovin'fl for compiling all of the information. It has made the resale purchase process SO MUCH easier to understand and it was SO helpful in the negotiation process. THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!

    You're welcome. It is great to have all these folks posting their ROFR info. It is nice to know the current DVC market, what the ROFR monkey is up to and get ideas of current purchase timeline. Otherwise we'd be blindly going into buying DVC. It is helpful...so I thank all those who post their ROFR info and timelines and the folks, mac tlc and Donald is #1, who have maintained these threads for years.

    I'm curious, what is included in the welcome package? I did receive the letter indicating our member number.
    TIA!

    Just got ROFR'ed by Disney and had to vent about it. I'm really shocked they did this on this one.

    It was for 200 points at BCV, Feb UY, at $77/point. There were about 80 points left from the 2013 UY and then full after that. To me, the kicker that made me think they wouldn't want it is the closing was to be delayed until 12/5. I just didn't think they would want a contract that had to be held that long until they closed on it, not to mention that the price was more than others have been reporting them buying back. Argh! Curious if other people have lost contracts to Disney that had such a prolonged closing date on them.

    Your member cards and a planner book...I think and I believe it comes a little while after the member # letter. You won't get it if you were already members and added onto that membership # (same UY and deeded same).

    So sorry to hear that. :( I would have thought the lack of 2013 points and delayed closing would help it pass. Well, you can certainly close on another contract before 12/5!

    I'm shocked, I would never have guessed that a contract without all the current points and with a far out closing date would have been taken in ROFR.

    Yikes. :scared1: So sorry to hear this! :( They are seriously doing some crazy things lately.

    From what I have gathered, it's always been tough to try and figure out what they are going to do, but it's been SO unpredictable lately. :confused:

    Did the sellers pay the MFs? I see a lot of them ROFR'd when the seller pays the maintenance fees.

    The MFs were paid by the sellers. That was part of their offer. It seemed reasonable to me because I was getting the contract so late in the year with just a low percentage of that year's points, so I was happy to agree with that offer.

    I guess next time, if I find a similar offer I like, I'll offer to pay the MFs even if they are offering just to further minimize my ROFR risk.

    :( Ugh! THat makes me really nervous for my contract I'm waiting to hear about, 300 BCV $75pp submitted 5/7. The kicker for me is I have also been on the direct wait list for 180 points BCV since Feb and my guide "guaranteed" it would only take 6-8 weeks for a contract. Fast forward almost 4 months and not a word. I'm also peeved because I told my guide to call me when VGF was available for purchase because that was my original plan B if BCV didn't work out and she has yet to call me. I guesse she's not to eager for a sale.:confused3

    I have never tried so hard to spend money.

    I hate to always compare these situations to myself, but it's hard not to. I'm 50/50 whether I will pass next week also. 125 points, split into 2 contracts (100 and 25) VWL, Dec use year, $79pp, buyer pays closing, seller and buyer split 2013 MF's. Aug closing, all points coming Dec on.

    My broker said to expect to hear Mon or Tues. but the anticipation is killing me. Especially with these RANDOM ROFR's
