    It takes less time, at least in my city, to buy a real condo or house than DVC resale. I can have purchase agreement signed and processed in 2 - 3 weeks, with keys ready if the real estate lawyers are on top of everything. So it's very inefficient that DVC has to take 60+ days.

    It is what it is. Well worth the wait to save 50 - 70% off of direct.

    It's interesting. I have 2 contracts in ROFR right now with TSS. Both went to ROFR on the same day I emailed back my paperwork to TSS, so it was fairly immediate.

    These timelines are very much in line with my resale timeline. I am now just waiting on the letter from Disney with my member ID so I can make my first reservation. It has required patience but I can pay roundtrip airfare from Arizona to Orlando for my family of six approximately 7X with my resale savings. It was totally worth the trade off!!!

    Does the seller have as long as they want to send back their closing documents? The title company has had our stuff for over a week but still nothing from the seller. Feels like we are at their mercy!

    No, not sure who you used, but everything should be returned by the closing date on your contract:confused3

    I think it states on your contract what may happen or what you can do if the seller takes too long. I've read other threads where the sellers were out of the country, on vacation somewhere and it took a long time and some that had second thoughts and decided not to sell.

    I was actually being processed over Thanksgiving and I was lucky that the sellers were proactive about their docs.

    I would try and contact your agents at the resell location and the title company and ask them what the hold up is with the seller.
