Here is my experience so far, as I’ve done numerous mostly small contracts:

Closed Contracts (offer to points in account):

BRV Resale - 43 days - www.FidelityResales.com / Mason
AKL Resale #1 - 49 days - www.DVCbyResale.com / Mason
AKL Resale #2 - 40 days - www.DVCStore.com / Mason
AKL Resale #3 - 80 days - www.DVCResaleMarket.com / Magic Vacation Title (start of Covid)
CCV Resale #1 - 91 days - www.FidelityResales.com / Mason (Covid, end-May to end-August)
SSR Resale - 120 days - www.*************.com / TRCS (Covid, May to September)

In progress:
CCV Small Resale #2 - www.*************.com / TRCS - 41 days to pass ROFR, 17 days to deed recorded, 58 total days so far, waiting for contract to appear (offer made 7/14, sent to ROFR 7/15, closed 9/10)
CCV Small Resale #3 - www.FidelityResales.com / Mason - 48 days to pass ROFR, 57 total days so far, waiting for seller to return closing docs (offer made 7/15, sent to ROFR 7/21)
Updated! Contract is closed and deed recorded.
Now the long wait for it to appear on my account begins... let's hope that it is less than the 49 days it took for my SSR contract to appear...

    Wow checked and my deed has already been recorded and is showing on the comptroller website, I closed today!

    Now the long wait begins for my contract to show up and my points to load. The closing agent said it may take up to 30 business days for this to happen :-O

    That is a 6 week wait and would put me at 10/22/20 before I see my points.

    I emailed MA to ask if they could update me on my timeline (MS chat advised me to do so), and I got a very general response, BUT it did say that from the time they receive deed documents to emailing new membership numbers, it is taking generally 3 to 4 weeks (rather than the previous 4 to 6 weeks)
    So it is speeding up!
    I’m hoping for 2 weeks max personally 🤪

    Friendly remember because this is such a fast moving thread. When posting a link to broker, it needs to come out as a link. Be sure to use preview before posting since I really do hate deleting people’s posts.

    This process took longer for multiple reasons. First of all the Seller had a vacation in June 2020 so we could not close until then.
    Then COVID hit and due to Furloughs and such we had to delay closing until October 15th that the sellers approved.
    So here we are closing on our first Add-on at CCV that we already have 250Pts at.

    Took a couple of days longer than it should have done to get the final balance paid due to my stupid currency transfer company not sending the first payment attempt as a wire transfer (despite my repeated requests, emails and reassurances that it would). I’m UK based so was a bit more tricky to send the funds but got there in the end.

    I also noticed that our deed was recorded yesterday but we’ve not been told we’ve closed - this doesn’t seem like the usual order looking at everyone else’s timelines?

    Yeah if the deed was recorded you have closed. When you check the comptroller's website, there should be an image associated with the deed recording, which is your closing paperwork :)

    Ah, yes, the document is there in an image - brilliant. Thanks for your help!

    I will add I got the email a day or two after we closed and it was recorded. The title company apologized but said they were trying to keep up.

    Same thing with a different title company when we sold in June. It came the next day.

    My husband and I are thinking about signing up for DVC at CCV and we are going to buy direct. How soon are we able to access those points? We are going down next month and would love to stay at a DVC resort if we can.
