Use year matters too.
We paid a higher price than other resales at the time because our use year (Sept) was scarce over the several month time frame I was looking. Sept contracts were being bought before they even hit the TSS website. So according to supply and demand we paid about $5-7 more per point than other available use year contracts
OP- good luck and hope you are able to get a contract. I love SSR, we are considering becoming DVC members and that is the resort where I would want my points
That's the way we were also. To find a contract 100 points or less with a December use year at SSR was extremely difficult and well worth it to me to pay the extra money. I get the TSS daily emails and after trying a few times I finally was able to get one as soon as I received the email.
I'm in the SSR ROFR period right now at $60/pt. I know it won't get bought by Disney so it's just the waiting process.
My experience was that quite a few sellers were rejecting even my $60 offers, so for those who succeed at $50-55, I have no idea how you did it but more power to you.
I'll chime in...I bought 2 years ago for $48 pp...the contract was current not loaded. I feel very fortunate because I was only expecting to buy 100 points but was able to buy140. If u are patient you can find the right deal.
I think you have to be prepared to wait, or maybe you get lucky.
I failed 4 times offering in the 50's and couldn't take it anymore, then I went higher and got a great deal with fully banked points and dues paid.
Agreed, 60 is a great deal, especially if you get banked points.
That is not bad a good price is what you are willing to pay. I was trying for a while and got lucky. We got in at SSR 53.00 for 320 pt with all 2012 banked but they needed to sell quickly. Before the end of year they wanted a deal and had listed it at 67.00 made offer and they accepted 12/31. Waiting for ROFR now.
Congrats on a great deal!
