I don't think it's wise to look at DVC as an investment. Yes, in the past you could sell your points for more than you paid with the Grand Californian being the best resort in that regard. However, there is no guarantee that you will be able to do that in the future. I really don't think you'd be able to essentially double your money after 12 years as it worked out in your example.Let talk investment grand Californian in 2009 sold for 112 per point 250 points =28000 dollars a listing just sold for 225 per point =56000 dollars I know what your gonna say but you never included the dues and what you spent but I chalk that up to expenses to taking my holiday so I would have spent that anyways so that a pretty good return on your money
When we were looking at buying in, I didn't factor in the ability to sell the contract for some portion of what we bought in with even though that is likely to be possible. If you're looking strictly at investments, there are much better options out there.
