    I didn't think there was much point in gathering purchase prices. Everyone bought in 2010-2012 at 130+; they all lost money.

    Though these were all recorded in May 2013, I sorted them by the date on the deed, which will be closer to the date they passed ROFR. As you can see, a few of these took up to a month for the closing to happen. You could expect that these prices were probably actually agreed on about 3-4 weeks prior to the date on the deed, since the waiver of ROFR takes about that long.

    Code:

    Once again I note that all the ROFR action was on contracts of 150 points or more. I wouldn't count on that, but it does seem so far pretty consistent.

    Median price for sold contracts was $93. Median price for ROFRed contracts was $89.

    So what is the proper conclusion to draw? Do we say that Disney doesn't like to ROFR smaller contracts, and this is supported by the fact that small contracts are rarely, if ever taken? Or is ROFR based on price and smaller contracts tend to sell for higher prices, which is what makes them more immune to being taken by ROFR? Both are logical, but who's to say? It's like a DVC chicken and the egg.

    It seems to me that 100-point contracts tend to sell for about the same as larger contracts. It's the 75 and smaller that tend to get bid up. Yet I haven't seen a ROFR of a 100 point contract. There aren't that many, so you're right: who knows?

    I was talking to my son about this the other day and we joked about Disney having a big chart and a 20-sided die like you'd use in D&D, and they look up the "ROFR number" on the chart based on size and price, and then roll the die to see if they take the contract. It wouldn't be a terrible way to go, really.

    Ours was filed with OCC sometime last week before the end of the month, but t wasn't as early as the 22nd...at least I don't think so and we paid $92 even, not $92.50. It was 160, June UY. I can find it online but it doesn't appear here. Weird.

    Thanks for pulling this together for BLT! I was tempted to do it myself after your BWV analysis.

    Also, your NPV thread gave my husband a good laugh! The first thing he said after I read him a few sentences was "He must be an actuary." :rotfl2:

    Heh. I've had two 100 point contracts taken in the past 12 months. But both were priced well below market value. So that might tell you something. :)

    What's the date on the deed itself, in the text of the first paragraph? That's the date I'm using in the table. It doesn't match the filing date - it's between two days and one month earlier, probably depending on how slow the sellers are in getting everything signed and sent in.

    Also, the numbers I'm using are from the deed doc tax, which is $0.70 per $100 of sale price. So if something is in the range $101-200, the deed doc tax is $1.40, and my spreadsheet says the selling price was $200. So the prices I'm using are up to $99 higher than the actual selling price, which make the per-point price off by a fraction of a dollar.

    I considered using the listed price for deeds that list a price, and using the deed doc tax for the deeds that don't, but ultimately decided it was much harder, and I'd rather be consistent. Overall, the average amount the price is off is $50, and the average size contract is 150 points, so the average amount the price per point is off by is $0.33.

    So according to this it looks like my offer of $100 PP for 150 points should go through? I am getting 300 banked points now plus another 150 in Feb, which is why I paid a little more. :hourglass

    Also, thanks for the info! This is exactly what I was looking for.

    We are indeed the last one you've got on there. It's a June UY. Forgot that it goes by the date on the seller's paperwork. Awesome! Now if only Disney would get my points loaded.

    Man, did these 4 take a beating. They were all originally purchased for $120/point. The 210 was bought in late 2009 and the others were bought in 2010. Don't recall what the incentives were back then, but still, not pretty.

    The sample size for this thread is WAY too small to garner any real conclusions. Good luck with ROFR (and even if Disney takes the contract, you'll always find another!)

    Just remember, only one person can get the best deal. Everyone else overpaid. It's ok, as long as you're happy with what you bought. :)

    And THIS is what I'm talking about when I talk about the risks of buying direct (and financing). They are very real, and they do happen. My guess is that these sellers did not make an informed decision about their purchase and ended up selling at a loss. If you make an informed choice to buy direct at high prices and/or finance, you are in a better position to prevent this from happening to you as well.

    Based on the prices last year we overpaid for sure ;)
    But we got it at 90, so I'm quite content.
    Wish we added on earlier tho.

    Great job in compiling the BLT info - the folks that were able to sell took a bath but probably had some equity so they could bail out - there are probably a lot of others that would like to bail out but owe more than the points would sell for.

    Has anyone seen the prices for BLT over on Fidelity?! $125, $140 even $160... :eek: If those are distressed contracts or contracts going into foreclosure and that's the needed value to pay off the loan, that's really unfortunate. I can't see how else they're posted so high.

    If I have my choice between direct at $165 or resale at even $140 (much less $160), I'll go direct. That little difference is worth it for the full benefits of ownership.

    Seriously, I'd love to know what those actually sell for...

    Well you'll be waiting awhile to find out, because they're not going to sell at that price. Most likely the listings will simply expire.

    I completely agree . I was browsing the resales and was thinking the same thing these prices are all really close to direct prices . Where are the half price deal I hear about here all the time .

    But I just can't believe these are all distressed contracts . If your in distress what good is it to you pricing it so it dosn't sell . I tend to think that people have an opinion of this is what I paid this is what I want . Not that that that is realistic either . But just what I think .

    I sell and sold lots of things for different hobbies ect . I have found I will often overprice what I am selling , and end up with more then I was looking to get for the said sale item . But I have a mentality that "there is an *** for every seat" . It sounds harsh but its the truth ,someone will find sone reason to love it and be wiling to pay more then you or most would think . But there is a lot of people, you just need to find one .

    Lmao , funny cause its true .

    I very much doubt these four deeds were purchased for $120/point. That may have been the base price of BLT in late 2009 or 2010, but there were rather significant incentives being offered by DVD during that timeframe. In fact, given the size of each of these deeds, its safe to assume that none of them were purchased for $120/point.

    Until late in 2009, BLT still had a base price of $112, and add-ons of 125 points could get a $13/point incentive. Plus, if memory serves me correctly, DVD was still offering add-ons with no closing costs in 2009 and into 2010, which reduced the acquisition price by a few hundred dollars.

    There is a problem with playing with the gross prices: Whatever conclusions you draw may be true, but they may not be accurate. Its sort of like using the lowest reported resale price and assuming that is the benchmark for all sales going forward. There is a difference between buying a stripped BLT deed for $90/point, including closing costs, and buying another BLT deed for $105 that is fully loaded and the seller pays closing costs.
