Hey All, I have been looking into purchasing points on the resale market and needed a little advice if anyone could help. I started looking a DVC a little harder after visiting Aulani last weekend and chatting to one of their reps there (yeah we got the whole tour and sell job, etc.) After some mad scientist spread-sheeting and research Im at a point where I am considering purchasing Vero Beach on the resale market. My reasons so far are the following: 1) I can get 3 times the points compared to purchasing new (or compared to resale Grand Californian ($115) which would be my first choice on the resale market living in SoCal) 2) I am not as fussed having the higher yearly dues (about $7.5 a point @ Vero) each year as I plan to sell back the points as we grow out of our Disney phase (maybe ). This mitigates the long term effect of this cost. I assume this higher yearly is a major contributing factor for the points being so cheap at Vero. 3) I have no real interest of actually staying at Vero (probably another reason the points are cheap). I know this limits me to the 7 month windows. However, the nature of what I do for a living gives me a lot of flexibility on when I can take a vacation, so I assume this would mitigate these issues? I know we like Aulani and Grand California the most. 4) My spreadsheets quickly uncovered buying new points is a bad choice. All privileges they remove from second hand buyers do not make any financial sense at all. 5) We tend to drop a lot of money on our vacations, pay for other family members, etc. So having 500 1000 points (on the cheap) would be a plus. The relatively high dues would be much less compared to dropping that in the regular upscale Disney market. Looking for any advice here from the DVC vets. Dont want to make a bad decision.
