    Thanks for the pixie dust! :wizard:

    Looks like there is new stuff at AKV often so I am sure something similar will come up! I am still learning about this UY thing and banking points, I hope a June UY is good for us if we get it! I am the type of person who plans things far out so I am sure we will be fine.

    Once I hear something on ROFR I will update my info.

    We've already got a June UY so it would have worked for us. We're in Ireland so have to plan vacations well in advance and mainly travel in July / August and June works well for that.

    WHEW!!! Over 25 pages of posts in the last month. Lots of ROFR activity too. Latest update should be on the first page in a few minutes.

    Well, we are almost official - just waiting on our member number and package. I am still surprised at how easy resale was. This board really helped since I went in with realistic expectations and was pleasantly surprised with how quickly everything came together. Thank you to everyone who shares their experiences here - it was a huge help to me! I know that it's not always this easy, but I'm grateful that we are where we are. Here is our timeline so far:

    2/11: Offer made and accepted - 200 BWV (Mar), $56/pt., 4 banked from
    '12, all '13 and '14
    2/12: Contracts received
    2/13: Signed contracts returned to broker and submitted for ROFR
    3/05: Passed ROFR
    3/08: Closing documents received
    3/11: Signed closing documents and check sent overnight mail
    3/15: Seller signed contracts received by title company and we closed!

    I can't wait for my first official DVC welcome home!

    Good luck to everyone looking and waiting for that perfect, magical contract!

    Just noting that I was pleasantly surprised with receiving my membership letter from Disney on 3/11 (full packet received on 3/15). Closed on 2/25, so only two weeks. First reservation already booked :)

    ROFR monster got me today. SSR 200 OCTUY. 322 2012 points and all forward. Seller pays closing, Buyer 2013 MF. $55 per point. Picked a bad time to start my resale purchase.

    Wish people hadn't been conned into getting on waitlists for the direct price increase. One born every minute I guess.

    Your welcome:) . I'm getting better and better at it ... I need to do it every couple weeks to make it more "current". This past month we were in Florida for two weeks, hence the longer-than-usual time between updates.

    Yes, thank you so much. It has really helped me educate myself with the resale market. I snapped up a small 75 point contract for VWL today. It is exactly what I was looking for and I am thrilled! August UY, 75 pts. at VWL, all points coming on 8-1-13. Paid asking price $70 pp. May be a lot but this is what I have been looking for
    for months.

    I also just paid a lot per point for a small BWV contract, and was just sent to ROFR today. But it was what I was looking for. My happiness is tempered somewhat by the fact that it looks like the seller is selling b/c a spouse passed away. I know this happens all the time, but it kind of got to me.

    Yeah, that would get to me too. I hope the people are just selling mine because they have too many points. That is what I am telling myself anyway. At least I figure paying quite a bit more than some may help with ROFR. Good luck.
