Disney Vacation Club is the popular, point based Disney timeshare with incredible resort properties and convenient flexibility. Yes, Members love it but sometimes your contract is just no longer the right fit. Perhaps your vacation habits have changed since you decided to join or you no longer want your contract for other reasons. You might be wondering, ‘Can I sell my DVC?’ You can absolutely sell DVC points! In fact, there’s an entire industry dedicated to selling DVC points. Below are some related questions and answers to fill you in on the process. Selling DVC timeshare is easy with the help of a licensed real estate professional like DVC Resale Experts.
How Can I Sell My DVC?
You can sell your DVC for any reason. No questions asked and you don’t have to prove anything. You simply make the choice and list your points. Disney Vacation Club does not have a resale department itself. That means you can not sell your Membership to someone else through Disney. Instead, DVC recommends finding a licensed real estate professional with related experience in regards to selling Disney Vacation Club points. It’s even possible to sell Disney Vacation Club points and get a surprisingly good return. This is especially true if you’ve had your Membership for many years but it does also depend on your home resort.
When you sell a DVC contract, you will find some similarities with selling a home in the process. Just like when selling a home, using a professional makes the experience simpler and streamlined. The first step usually involves talking about your contract and asking any questions you might have. What is my DVC contract worth? Is my home resort popular with DVC resale buyers? What can I do to sell my DVC fast? An Expert will be happy to talk to you about the specific details of your contract and calculate a suggested per point price based on current trends.
DVC Resale Trends
Each month we cover the DVC average resale prices from the month before. Reading this over can give you a look at the current market. We also cover the ROFR DVC stats monthly which tells us more information about what’s going on with DVC resale. Sometimes Disney buys contracts back, using their Right of First Refusal privilege, instead of letting the sale go through to the buyer. This doesn’t really change things for the seller. However, when Disney doesn’t buy contracts back regularly, prices can start to go down.
DVC resale prices have gone up over time but fluctuate from month to month. Variables like demand, interest rates and what’s going on with direct DVC sales can change things on the resale market. For example, when a new Disney Vacation Club home resort or expansion is announced, potential buyers may wait to see prices for that property before making final decisions about resale.
Listing Your Contract
When you’re ready to sell, a DVC resale listing is made for your contract. DVC Resale Experts does their best to match your contract with a buyer. There may be someone waiting for a contract that looks just like yours. When an interested party reaches out, your Expert will let you know. At this point you may or may not negotiate depending on your preference. When you and a buyer agree to a per point price, things really get moving. Your Expert will be there every step of the way, making sure all of the paperwork is done in the right order, communicating with you and the buyer when necessary.
