    Good Luck. OKW seems to be ROFR'd a lot but hopefully you can get this one through. :tink:

    Nice Deals! Just curious- do you get any discounts on closing costs/admin fees when you buy more than one at a time? Good Luck w/ ROFR!

    Thanks. There are no discounts in this case. If the same seller has more than one contract at the same resort then there could be a combined closing. This is the case with another 270 OKW points that I am waiting to go to ROFR. It is split into 30 pts, 50 pts, and 190 pts with one closing cost. Its not through Fidelity so there are no admin fees.

    Boy will I love to know if that 1000 point, sale pending OKW contract passes ROFR. If they rent out points for just 2 years that'd bring the price out of pocket, down to 30/point...check my math, it's late!;)
    711 banked, 2000 coming on 8/13, $57,000

    Ugggh... I am home w the flu...

    Been thinking about an add on for quite some time... So, I have nothing better to do... so I dropped a bid on an SSR contract over at Fidelity (still waiting to hear back).

    Also looked on ebay and saw a couple listings. Got me to to thinking, has anyone here ever been successful with a DVC purchased on ebay?

    I've never even tried to look there & enjoy the benefits of having everything handled, especially those reseller companies with a great amount of experience. They know what to look for (in most cases).

    Submitted on 12/3/12 and passed ROFR on 12/27. Sending in closing docs now!
    VGC 310 pts, all Dec 2013 points and on.
    $85/point, buyer pays closing and I pay maintenance (I was told by Fidelity that Disney bills that to me and can't be negotiated.)

    Finally joining DVC!! :)

    Great price.

    I'm in ROFR now with a VGC contract at $90 and have about 50% confidence it will pass. From what Fidelity has told me recently, VGC has passed at $89, so maybe I'll be OK after seeing yours as well.

    Is it the flu or "addonitis"? :rotfl2:

    Most of the listings I've seen on eBay were for a certain amount of points and not the membership. The actual membership contracts were mostly from the Timeshare Store. I would think that someone selling their DVC membership would probably set a minimum that wouldn't be much different than resale prices. You'd still have to go through ROFR too but I'd also be interested to know if anyone has bought through eBay.

    Good luck Sil. Too bad we aren't in the Big Easy waiting for our team to play next Sunday!

    Hey Bill! I am suffering from the flu and addonitis! While we are "managing" with our 160SSR contract, we are limited in terms of options. I think buying another 160pt SSR will make our stays more special... more 1BRs... maybe some 2BRs (w 2DDs, I need all the space I can get).

    And 2014 is DWs XXth Bday and I am thinking about sending her and 5 or 6 of her friends down for a shin dig and would like to treat them to a long weekend in a GV or TreeHouse Villa and I will need some points to pull that off.

    There are two contracts (not just vacations) listed on ebay by a Florida realtor named CJ Timeshares). One is auction - 100ptVero is ending tomorrow nite (its at around $1500 now) and the other is a 220pt HHI that ends in 9 days and I am the high bidder at two dollars (I have no interesting HHI.. but I am not immune to a little speculation!).

    I wish the Saints made it to the big dance. I might've had to shack up w u!!! Maybe next year when the Saints make it... u can shack up w me! (but who wants to see an outdoor game in NJ in Feb). Not sure if u knew this but I share the same last name as the d-coord who Peyton just fired (no relation). I wish he would've worked out.

    I hope you and yours are well... I am gearing up for a week on the Fantasy (Presidents week). Doing two one day stays before and after the cruise (BWV and BLT) and hope to visit EP b4 and MK after.

    I have not bought off e-bay but did follow a few contracts forsale on there a year or so ago. They had a BLT contract that sold for 66.75 per point I think it was a 160 point contract - wrong UY for me since I already have 2 different UY and do not want a third! I am not sure if it passed ROFR but it did sell for a great price!

    How would it work if you win a bid on Ebay, then, and it doesn't pass ROFR?

    Would you be reimbersed all you bid?

    I can't imagine a low ball win on Ebay would pass ROFR when offers close to the "normal" range sometimes don't even make it. I'd be leary of purchasing on Ebay... at least with an established company, that sells the timeshares on a regular basis, you can pretty much count on certain legalities being upheld.
