Thank You. After I put bid in I read all kinds of posts how Disney was buying up OKW. Yes I feel fortunate.
WOW! some really great contracts going through, ours isn't loaded, but still hoping it will be ours!
OKW 80 pts, March UY, $58 pp, 80 '12 points to be banked once past ROFR, buyer pays closing, seller pays MF, submitted 9/18
Really trying to be
Trying Not to be anxious and check the darn electronics every 2 hours...
even went back to figure average amount of time between submit and past ROFRs......... ok, maybe not so cool calm or collected,
but still hopeful, and waiting for the dose of
Congratulations . . . and welcome home! We have owned at AKV since 2008 and really love staying there. Getting a small contract like that for under $70 per point is a great deal!!
I see lots of details I left off. 170 pts for 2012 included. seller paid dues on those.60.00 pt Hoping to use and borrow for May 2013
Another rare OKW contract sneeks through, congradulations
Sent to Disney on 10/1 for rofr: 100 OKW2057 $70 Sep 187 for 2012 100 for 2013 Buyer pays closing and MF. I was ok paying "more" for the loaded 2012 and the fact that the monkey seems to like OKW. Crossing my fingers, I'll be a new member soon!
Nice Deal! Haven't noticed Disney buying back any extended contracts so you should be fine Good Luck!!

Passed ROFR on my birthday a few days ago. SCORE!
Certified check lost in the mail? I'm so glad that I heard that my contract closed before I read your post!! Does anybody know how long it takes to get the points in an existing membership after closing? My broker's email said 14-28 days, but I hope it's not that long -- I didn't realize that I was at risk of missing our banking deadline of 10/31.
I learned the hard way that the Canada Post system doesn't talk to the US post system. So they can only follow a package to the border! They eventually get a report from the US but 30 days later... So while certified mail is safe (my package finally arrived after three weeks - that's an average speed of 3 mph) it is not guaranteed to be fast and you might be left in the dark for a month.
So my advice is not only make sure that your package is traceable but pay extra to guarantee delivery within a few days. Will use Purolator or UPS next time, not Canada Post.
I think you should have the points in your account within two weeks for an add-on. Good luck!
Firstly, I just want to thank everyone for all of the great information here. If it wasn't for these threads, I would not have been able to interpret the information in a contract in order to make a fair offer that I am happy with. So this is what I got (same seller):
100 SSR (Aug) - all 2012, all 2013. $45/pt
210 BCV (Aug) - all 2012, all 2013. $59/pt
Seller pays 2012 mf's, buyer and seller SPLIT closing costs .
I honestly doubt the BCV will pass ROFR, but you never know!
I've always used wire transfers to pay, that way the closing company has everything from my as fast as possible
Congradulations, nice contracts. Hope that BCV gets through for you.
Thanks Doug - yeah, me too!
BTW, your posts were very very helpful to me Thanks for all of your insight, and math lessons!
Wow great prices on both contracts! Good luck getting them past ROFR!

Latest update through 10/5 has been posted on the first post of the first page of the thread. To save some "thread space", I'll just paste the latest update on that first post on the first page.
Very nice Contracts!! Wishing you the best of luck!! I must say that I agree that Doug's post are very helpful! I was having fun with his cost/point formula lastnight to see how well I did with some of my iffy plans

We contracted for our second DVC property around 9/26/12 - OKW, 150 points, March UY, $50 per point. Includes 150 of 2012 points banked, 150 2013 points etc. Seller paid all 2012 maintenance. We paid closing. Went to Disney for ROFR around 10/2/2012.
Reading about ROFR - after reading this thread, I am feeling a bit anxious about getting through ROFR.
Stay positive !!! But the monkey may have his (her?) eyes on that OKW one given recent experience. Best of luck ..
