I’m the seller of a contract and buyer hasn’t sent in closing documents in 9 days (ROFR notification was 12 days ago). Typically I see complaints about the seller taking a while but I’m a little concerned there’s an issue with buyer since typically buyers are eager to get ahold of the contract. We’re both domestic. Would you follow-up with the title company or the broker to see if they can check in with buyer? I know they could just be lining up financing but I wouldn’t expect it to take too long to go so.

Thank you.
My BWV contract finally closed yesterday, a few days before the end closing date! I guess the buyers were just lining up financing. In any case I am now able to pay off the direct VGF purchase I made without using the 6 months grace period offered with the Premier card. Looking forward to staying at VGF in December!

I think they are getting better. I had my closing docs the day it passed ROFR (like hours) and I was shocked. However, my sellers have taken three weeks to get their docs signed so that almost negates the quickness of the closing docs being received on the same day.

Wow that's crazy!! I emailed them basically beginning them if they could try and expedite it for ours as we had a big time crunch. Thankfully after that they did get then to us otherwise we were told it would have been 3 weeks. Hopefully your sellers are quick to return their docs too. After going through this process twice (technically 3 times but ROFR took our first one) I have learned that resale is not for us. Next time we'll definitely go direct. I thought I was a pretty patient person, but I learned very quickly that I am not an I am a bit of a control freak too. 😅

I have chatted Member Services today and they said I need to wait another 2 weeks or longer to have the points loaded. I am little confused...when I chatted them last week, they said once the contract shows up in my account (with a zero balance), the points could be added in 3-5 days. But that is not what I heard today...sigh....what's a little more waiting! But I was hoping it could be added via the chat.

I would suggest just keep asking them until someone loads your points. Calling MS might give you better luck. It honestly depends on the CM if they'll decide to load your points right then and there or just tell you to wait. I've had them tell me the same thing before that I needed to wait then I just tried calling the next day and a different CM was happy to load my points right then.

We got the zero point thing on Friday the 8th of July, then had to wait until Tuesday to finally get them loaded. We had better luck with the MS on phone than online chat . The person on the phone was at least willing each time to check with their manager to see if points were there ready to be loaded , but the MS chat person was not and just gave a curt 3-4 WEEK spiel ( and yes I did call almost daily when we saw the contract was there as we were already well into our booking window for the banked points ). Finally on Tuesday they found them and loaded them for us! OP - sending pixie dust your way hoping you get your points loaded ASAP!

Thank you so much, yes, I totally agree. At @TerrorPigeon 's suggestion, I called MS yesterday. They kept me on hold for about 30 minutes to see if they could get them loaded but were unable to. They said to give it a day or two and try them back if I don't see them. They were MUCH more gracious on the phone with me than on chat--not that they were unfriendly on chat but simply more unyielding. I explained that I needed the points for a reservation before the rooms sell out but they did not care via chat. Thanks so much and fingers crossed for some points soon! :-)

I received my access code mail on Saturday but still haven't gotten my member id email to set up my account. I'M DYING OVER HERE DVC!!!
13 days from closing to email seems pretty darned fast these days, especially for a new member. Just a few months ago, when things were flying through ROFR, it was still taking +/- 20 days for a contract to show up for existing members.

Doesn't make the wait any less painful though.

I would give them a call. I received my access code last Monday and my member id 2 hours later. My broker did say it could take a couple additional days before you receive the member ID.

I got my e-mail on Saturday as well, thought it was strange because it came at 10 pm CST. I thought my member ID would come a few hours later, but never did. I tried chatting them to get it and they said Member Administration needs to issue it. Sent them an inquiry yesterday via e-mail and haven't received it yet. So I am in the same boat as you.
