I have been looking at getting a small contract in the resale market and I was wondering where the value in buying resale is. I want to have some points so that I can spend every other year at the beach. When I looked at the prices of 25-50 point contracts I don't see that much of a difference buying direct. I saw a listing for 30 points at Hilton head, priced at $60 a point with no 2012 points and 400 something in closing. I made a fair offer and the response was $60 firm. For 30 points you pay $7 a point in closing and you have no points until next year. Disney sells hhi direct for $80 a point for min 50 points and you get last years points. Total. contract is under $4100 and you can finance if you need to. Resale would cost $2300 for 30, and if you wanted to go this year you have no points. Direct is 4100 and this year you have 100 points to use. You could rent the 100 points And make 1200 bringing the total cost down to 2900. I understand it's mike math but it doesn't seem like the resale on 25-50 points makes sense when you look at dues and closing fees on top of the price per Point.
