    I just bought early Sept. I searched myself for what I wanted (daily) but I did talk to two of the resellers and got updates from TTS. Ending up buying from Fidelity (excellent work)Waiting for Disney to load me in system right now.5 weeks exactly today since offer.I hear 8 weeks ususally so I'm feeling lucky it has gone this quickly(unless Disney drags their feet here)

    I listed my desired points with the resale brokers that would take the info. For some unknown reason TTS wouldn't. That made no sense to me.

    Advertising yourself as "the largest reseller," but not taking a wait list of buyers, seems counterintuitive. For gosh sakes, these companies get paid for matching buyers and sellers. Why on earth wouldn't you get lists of both buyers and sellers, and try to bring them together. But whatever, all the other agencies took my info- and I went with the first one that matched an appropriate contract.

    Would have been happy to use TTS, and would certainly look at their lists in the future- as many others here seem to have had good experiences with them. But I guess they are too busy to provide any service on the "buyer's agent" side of the broker equation.

    We learned today that Disney waived ROFR.

    SSR, 150 points, Sept. UY, includes 150 for 2012 and 150 thereafter, we paid $8800 which included everything - closing and maintenance for 2012. Submitted around September 21.

    This is our first DVC purchase. We are awaiting answer regarding ROFR for OKW which we purchased a week later.

    Jim and Kitty,

    Wow of my DIS Hall of Famers in one thread!

    Jack, How are things in HB? The ladies and Pete and Rudy doing well? Looong time no speak. Please send regards to every one.

    Looks like we just missed each other on NY cruises this summer! We did the first Magic cruise in Sept.

    BTW, great deal on the SSR contract. I am thinking about buying another SSR contract in a few months. Hope to get a deal as good as yours.

    And Bill! Congrats on DD's wedding! I look forward to reading about Aulani!

    I wish the Saints were doing better. Plans to travel to the Big Easy in 2012 are on hold. Wish you well.... and.... GEAUX SAINTS!

    Great to hear from you Sil! Thx about DD's wedding. They delayed their honeymoon and are going to Aulani during semester break in December. I've started my Aulani TR (link below).

    Ditto about the Saints. They won 13 in a row in 2009. All they have to do now is win 12 in a row! Easy, right? :lmao: Let me know if you make it down this way. We'll have to find a time to get together! WHO DAT!

    I posted here because I'm suffering from adonitis again! We sold our small VWL contract because it had a different UY from the others. We got good use out of it for the short time we had it though since it had banked points when we bought it. Now we are looking to add on BCV but with an Aug UY. Those seem to be few and far between so we'll just have to be patient. You mentioned a while back about possibly adding on...did the bug get you too? :rotfl2:

    Grand Villa at Easter! Can I be a stowaway!

    What cruises u have in the hopper? We are doing the Fantasy on Presidents week.... and waiting to see waht 2014 looks like - hoping for NYC again.

    Wow, you are like a day trader in DVC! Nah, I still have my original SSR resale contract, but like Jack above, w my DDs getting older, I think 2BRs will likely become the norm, so I need some more points (plus the prices are amazing now - Jack paid $52 at SSR.. a total bargain). I am hoping to get the same resort, same # of points and same use year to make things easy, but like you August seems like a tough use year. That said, I need to see how things go at year end (money wise) and then I will take a plunge.

    Congrats on your purchase. I would not be nervous in the least if I were you. DVD still has plenty of AKV points in their inventory and there is nothing about your contract that stands out. A lot of people on here talk about the anxiety that goes along with ROFR, but quite frankly only a very small percentage of buyers should be concerned about this. Expect that your ROFR process will take the full 30 days and expect that it will pass without incident. Then get ready to enjoy your points! :)

    What ELMC said. First, congrats! :thumbsup2 Second, chill out! :cool1: You got a good deal, but not one so amazing that Disney is likely to touch it. They are not ROFR'ing much AKV at all (if any). The only downside is that they'll likely make you sweat out the entire 30 days (bastages!).

    Welcome (almost) home! pixiedust:

    If you want to post a few more details, I can add your contract to the summary page. Need Use Year, price, who pays closing and maintenance fees, when did you submit it to Disney for ROFR, if it passed what was the date?
