My family is considering the purchase of a DVC membership. I'm a little overwhelmed and therefore taking the time to read these boards and doing as much due diligence as possible. Specifically, I've been reading to various posts on "direct vs. resale." My question deals with DVC's RIFR (right of first refusal). I can buy 270 points direct from DVC (Grand Floridian) at $150/point. I see Bay Lake Tower resales (same number of points) for $94/point. A few assumptions for this analysis: +We consider both resorts to be relatively similar. (So we don't care which our home resort would be.) +We don't care about using points outside of WDW. (So the limitations that accompany resale purchases don't concern us.) +The end date of the membership for each resort is close enough that we're treating them equally. Based upon the above, it would seem obvious that the better financial outcome would be the Bay Lake Tower purchase via resale ($25k v. $45k). However, it seems too good to be true. So I asked my DVC sales consultant. She advised that DVC would almost certainly invoke its ROFR for resale purchases at BayLake Tower for that ($94) price range. She further stated that DVC is currently reselling Bay Lake Tower memberships for $165/point when they get them and there is a significant waiting list. So....should I buy direct or risk the ROFR? Thanks!
