    Our offer for an OKW property was accepted today. Our broker says our contract documents will arrive (by email) in 5-7 days. Is this typical? It seems long to me.

    It depends on the broker and on how busy they are. I typically received mine in 24 hours but I know some brokers take longer and it is a busy time just now. Buying resale takes time you have to be patient

    Just sit back and relax. :goodvibes

    You will have a 60 to 75 day wait on average until you can make a reservation.

    We had 2 offers accepted this week and were told to expect the contracts via email in 5-6 business days.

    Sold through TSS in March and we had the contract the day we accepted the offer. Bought 2 contracts through Fidelity (one taken by Disney) and both took almost a week before we had a contract!

    We have dealt with 2 resale companies (TSS & DVCbyResale) & had our contract same day in each case.

    I called the Timeshare Store and offered the listed price at 5:15 pm on a Sunday. I received the contract by e-mail within an hour.

    I used TSS and I offered late one day and had my documents by email early the next day.

    I guess the seller is expecting the long wait too.
