    We have an August UY and it is VERY difficult to find contracts under 125 pts at our resorts with that UY. We had one small March UY contract at VWL but sold it after using all the banked points. I've noticed that September & December seem to be more prevalent but like you, we'll live with what we have.

    We found out this morning that we passed ROFR! This thread was such a huge help to us. I didn't want to be rude offering well below asking but I knew the going rates from these boards and figured the worst thing I could hear was a "No."

    The original asking price was $84.44

    NattysMom 225 SSR (Jun) $54, 86 banked '11 pts, 225 '12 pts, 225 '13 pts, buyer pays closing, seller pays MF (sub 9/20, passed 10/16) Fidelity

    I have a question for those that frequent this thread. How do you find your DVC contract?

    - Have you listed a preference with the 4 main DVC resellers and wait to be contacted?
    - Do you get on their email lists and then respond?
    - Do you check their online listings periodically? If so, how often?
    - Are you in telephone contact with an agent and they call you with the size/resort/UY contract you are seeking?
    - Do you search differently depending on the DVC reseller?
    - Is there a different route you take to find your preference?

    I realize the most likely answer will probably be all of the above or some combination thereof but I was just wondering how most of you go about the process. TIA for your response either on this thread or privately.

    I contacted 2 of the big resale agencies. One did not have the resort/size/UY that I was interested in at that time (TSS.). The other (Fidelity) had several contracts that were within the parameters I was looking at. The first offer I made was accepted.

    Before I was ready to make an offer I did peruse the online listing of the big 4, just getting a feel on list price, movement on the contracts etc, for a few weeks. The contract that I bid on first had been on the website for several weeks. I was hopeful they would be negotiable on price. They were. :)
