Hi! I'm new to the board, but I just caught up on all of the DVC eps of the DIS Unplugged podcast and I felt it necessary to comment on something that was said a few times and that I strongly disagree with and I think is factually inaccurate. Both Pete and Jerry said that DVC points don't lose their value and should be considered an investment. Yes, if you bought into DVC in the 90's and went to resell those points today, you'd likely see an appreciation in the per point value. However, for new buyers to look at DVC points as an investment which will appreciate and never lose value is a dangerous way of thinking and borders on financially irresponsible. If you buy Copper Creek today at $188 / point direct from Disney, it's currently reselling for between $145 - $165, which is between 10-20% LOSS of value. Additionally, the rights of DVC resale owners are continuously being reduced, which further drives down the value of the points. Overall, I just thought it necessary to chime in, in case someone was less well-versed in DVC was going to make a purchase based on the rationale that DVC points are a good investment strategy. While they do retain some value, unlike most other timeshares, the expectation that one will be able to cash-out after a few years and make money is not sound financial advice.
