    Of the 80 or so contracts listed that passed ROFR in this thread, only one matches that price and one beats it (by just a little over a dollar or so more). I'd say good deal and jump on it!!:idea:

    Thank you. DH and I weren't sure because we had offered $40 and weren't comfortable going any higher since it was stripped. But I know $45 is still a great price. I just am super cheap when it comes to things like buying a contract with no points. As I am the crazy coupon obsessed person that asks for discounts for reasons like there is no box lol. And DH wanted them to pay closing costs if we pay $45 pp, but they won't. So we based our decision on your comment :)

    After obsessively reading the boards for a few weeks, we finally decided to give into our addonitis. I am impressed that we had been able to stay on the wagon this long. ;)

    We currently have SSR and AKV both with DEC UY.

    Then came the decision on which resale agency to use. I had great experiences with two separate agencies that I spoke with and a terrible experience with a third. In fact I am still awaiting an email response from over one week ago.

    When we finally decided on a contract and the offer was made, the seller had "sellers remorse" and took it off the market.

    After a short negotiation, our second offer on a different contact was accepted.

    Our contract was submitted to Disney on Valentine's Day! Hopefully that will send some luck our way!

    Now the waiting begins!

    SSR / 150 / OCT / UY / $58 PP / All 2012 Points / Buyer pays all Fees and Costs

    After quietly keeping my eye on resales, I finally jumped in on a June SSR 300 with 558 coming in June at 60pp, I'll be paying close and 2013 maintenance. Seems the market has gone up over the past year... This will add to my current point obsession.

    Now we're waiting on Disney to tell me whether they want it instead.

    Hi, new member to this site. We are renting points for our vacation in July. We love staying at WL, probably six times, maybe seven. Thought the VWL would be nice step up. Then I started researching the whole DVC thing, and blah, blah, blah.

    We offered $52.50 on a VWL 150 point contract with UY October. Asking price was $55. 40 points coming in 2014, and 150 in 2015. ROFR'd.

    Probably should have just paid the $55. Oh well.

    Waiting on a new offer that was agreed to. $60/pt, 150 at VWL, UY June. 150 points coming June 2014.

    At least we can use them on our trip next year, if it goes through. I wonder if that will pass muster with Mickey?

    Was informed today that we passed ROFR. Here is the contract info:

    200pts SSR Dec UY with 150 2012pts and all points going forward.

    Buyer pays maintenance fee on 2013 points and seller pays closing. Of course buyer had to pay the $195 fidelity fee. Price is $50 a point gross with a net of $42.73 a point.

    Sorry to hear that and Welcome to the Disboards! Wow that makes me very nervous about my contract that I am waiting to hear on (VWL). Good luck on your other contract.

    This is the first VWL contract that I have seen ROFR'd in a long time, especially surprised to see it ROFR'd with no current year points. Does anyone else think this seems strange?

    No word for me today. It's a bit early but was hoping. I'm thinking next week may be my week. I'll be shocked if Disney picks up my contract but you never know.

    No word on mine either and I should have heard. Today was 28 days in ROFR. I bet I will hear tomorrow or the next day. I am guessing my broker got word from DVD but just hasn't sent me notification yet.

    Same with us. Just want to book a Christmas trip before the 7 month window opens up. I figure that is the best shot to get a room.

    OK, I'm up to date -- thansk to lovin'fl for the assistance. Updated post should be on page 1 in 5 minutes or so. To shorten the list a bit, I have deleted some of the "old" waiting entries, some are 8 months old.

    Same here, 29 days and no word. Ours won't be ROFR'd because of price, $61/point SSR, but I'm just ready to move forward.

    That's right. I remember your previous comments. Ok so both great deals. Just have to pass the ROFR first. Let me know how it turns out for you. Good luck :)

    I don't even know yet if I have a contract to submit to ROFR as after I accepted the counter-offer yesterday, the realtor told me she would call me back but never did. I don't know if this is standard procedure but they are extremely slow. I submitted my offer on Friday and didn't get a response until yesterday. DH was already talking about adding more points on in 3 years or so. So depending how this realtor continues to delay the process, I don't know if we would use them again. Is this normal to accept an offer and not hear back from the realtor?
