When Mods are in the $400's they are not Mods anymore IMO. Consider looking at resales. You don't have to spend nearly that amount of money to get started. Buy a fully loaded OKW or SSR contract for 10K or so with about 700-800 in MF's (assuming 100 points or so) if you can afford it (maybe you didn't travel this year) and then you are only paying MF's. You can get a studio for 7+ nights or so with 100 points. The nice things is, this contract continues to retain value and can be sold if needed. Good luck!We start saving about a year out. Although with the way prices are going up and the fact that I'll have two kids to buy tickets for next year. I'm not exactly sure what those vacations look like going forward in to 2022. We typically like to go down for around 8-9 nights with a budget of around $8000. You don't seem to get a whole lot for that anymore. The moderate hotel rack rates are getting hilariously expensive.
I've dabbled with the idea of DVC however I really don't have 30-35 grand to drop then turn around and pay the dues.
