I'm hoping that venting will help move my properties along. I notarized and wire transferred my funds for both the property I was selling and buying within 2 days. It's been well over a week (close to 2) and I'm waiting for the buyer and seller of the properties I'm buying/selling to return their items. Knowing that I have a 4 to 5 week wait to go with Disney to complete their end, I'm anxious for the next wait.

Anyone else waiting with me? Thanks for letting me vent.

I’m sorry you’re still waiting. I’m in ROFR still. Am I wrong for thinking that we are supposed to wait to wire funds until sellers send closing docs? Or is that not the case?

We waited a little over 3 weeks for sellers docs and they forgot to notarize so we waited another 3 weeks. We received paperwork on July 6 and ours was received on July 8th with our check. Final documents were received on 8/16. It took Disney about a month to load the contract too. I totally understand your frustration.

I sent our cashiers check in with our documents. It is a little bit of a chance because if the seller or the buy back out you have to get the money back from the closers escrow, that can take a little bit. I knew that we wanted the ALK we got so I was not going anywhere so in the interest of expediting things I just sent it all together.

I can commiserate with you, returned docs 2 days after ROFR waived and title company sent them out, been waiting 2 weeks for seller to return theirs :( There's 100+ points banked from 2019 into 2020 that's expiring end of Nov (luckily they banked the 2020 points into 2021) that we were hoping to use, but it's getting less and less likely now. Broker says the seller sent them in on Friday, so keeping fingers crossed!

End-to-End we were 78 days. We decided to call MS to get points loaded once we learned about some left over points we didn't know about and figured we could do an extra trip in this use-year. Big thanks to Lori/Mark at DVCSales and Cammy at Mason for moving our first resale along so smoothly!

Only 39 days so far as of closing, so i'm pretty happy thus far.
Let's hope it doesn't sit with Member administration to take another 39 days to add contract/points.

I asked our title company about this. They suggested I wait until they received the sellers docs before I wired the money in. So, I’m waiting. Got my closing docs fedex’ed in last week.

How often is too often to check in with the title company once you've passed ROFR? Once a week? This will be my last experience with buying/selling resale.

I am trying to post my information in the format on the first page of this board and I keep getting told that my post cannot be posted?

We were told our sellers banked the points from December 2020 when we bought our contract. Guess what - they didn't! And our closing took place after the August banking date. Luckily MS made an exception because the contract was with them by the 8/1 deadline and banked for us, which was a relief as we bought that contract with the intention of going twice in 2022!

I have a concern about this. Is there a way to confirm supposedly 'banked pts' this before getting too far into $$$ part of purchase? Seems more than just seller's word on this repeated in the broker's listing is warranted.
Do brokers verify anything prior to listing?

As a seller, they ask that you send them a points activity statement which details out the status of points before they will list.

Thank you but someone posted above they were told pts were banked but they weren't.
Hmmmm, when I sold recently, I had to send my points activity statement PRIOR to listing and then with my notarized closing documents. There was a two point check with Disney Resale Market and Magic Vacation Title. Each broker and title company likely have different policies.
