    We own 2 50-point contracts and I am curious as I almost never see anything for sale on the resale sites?

    Spoke to my guide and the waiting list is huge for our use year, April. The group at the top of the list went on there two years ago.

    Direct prices are currently $135.

    Thanks, that is why I was thinking small contracts may go for more on resale than the 90's...no point to sell now then. I prefer WDW and OKW so could get more points there for less $, but since we live on the west coast now it makes sense to hold them.

    FWIW, the rental market for VGC points is very good. You should easily be able to get $13 per point and more for reservations made within the home resort priority booking period.

    It's a bit of work, but I know some who rent VGC and then rent something at WDW. They say they always come out ahead. (Personally, it wouldn't be worth it to me, but it's an alternative to using expensive points at OKW).

    I'm in ROFR for a 125 point contract there at $90/point.

    According to Sharon at Fidelity, they recently (in Jan) had one pass at $89 for a contract in the 200 range.

    The ones I've seen recently are priced between $90 and $105 and tend to go pretty quickly, although Fidelity does still have a few listed. But with their IT system they could already be sold, because the only update the site twice a week.

    Thank you everyone! DH says to just hold them now and possibly rent them the years we don't go to DL :)

    Good plan. You will do fine you can go thru a broker and minimize the hassle for a couple of bucks.

    I think this is a good idea. This isn't an offer, just a general statement, but I know that I would pay $13-14 a point to get VGC at the 11 month window. I'm sure others would as well.

    Thanks everyone! Next time I will rent my points to someone who needs the 11 month window and then rent OKW myself! :thumbsup2
