The resale company dropped the ball on that, but it sounds like you made out. I often wondered is some resale companies did not know the difference. I would think they would do something to let people know it is an extended contract. There is one company that advertises the 2042/2057 use year possibly but you have to click on the individual contracts to see if it is 2057. Yet the mark new contracts, double points and lowered asking price.Amazingly sometimes they are not advertised as extended. A little more than a year ago I put in an offer on a small contract at OKW thinking it was 2042 as it didn't say otherwise. It wasn't until I got the forms to sign that I found out it was extended. I thought it was a good deal for a 2042 contract and even better for extended.
On average what is the price difference between 2042 vs 2057 contracts?The extended Old Key West contracts do come in somewhat regularly, but they do sell very fast as well. I would say 98% of the listings we post for Old Key West are the 2042 expirations, but 2% or 2 out of 100 have the extension....so the 2057 packages are out there. Our office does verify with Disney before listing the properties to confirm if the package is a 2042 or 2057.... so if it is an extended contract, we will list it with (EXPIRES 2057) in the description.
