Disney ROFR DVC Stats for March 2022
It’s time to go over the Disney ROFR DVC stats for March 2022 based on DVC Resale Experts’ own sales and data. In Disney Vacation Club contracts it says Disney has the ROFR, or the first opportunity, to buy a contract back when a Member wants to sell DVC points. ROFR is short for Right of First Refusal. After a seller accepts an offer, Disney then has a say if they would like to buy the contract back at the agreed upon rate instead of letting the sale go through.
Disney ROFR DVC Stats is a monthly series we produce. ROFR numbers matter the most when you’re interested in buying resale DVC points. If you’re selling DVC points, this won’t change much. When you place a bid on a resale DVC contract, you want to price competitively so you have the best chance at a successful sale. A low price per point may seem exciting but it can mean Disney Vacation Club takes interest and purchases it at that price instead. DVC Resale Experts will be happy to provide insight based on our statistics if you’re ready to submit an offer. Here is a recap of March 2022 buybacks.
Disney ROFR DVC Stats for March 2022
In March of 2022, Disney chose to use ROFR to buy back about 36% of DVC Resale Expert sales. Out of the 39 ROFR responses received, 25 contracts passed and 14 were bought back by DVC.
The resorts affected by ROFR DVC interception in March of 2022 were:
Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas, Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, Copper Creek Villas & Cabins at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, Disney’s Hilton Head Island Resort and Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort.
Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas accounted for about 15% of the month’s buybacks with six contracts going to Disney. The monthly ROFR high for March 2022 was $139.00.
Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort had one buyback at $165.00 per point.
Copper Creek Villas & Cabins at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge had one buyback in March of 2022 at $160.00 per point.
Disney’s Hilton Head Island Resort also had just one buyback and at $52.00 per point in price.
Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort was also a common buyback and had five contracts go back to Disney through ROFR. Saratoga has been a popular buyback for Disney for more than a few months. If you’re on the resale DVC market for a contract at Saratoga, or any resort that’s likely to become a buyback, you’ll want to consult with your Expert on pricing to make sure your offer is still competitive. The monthly high ROFR price for Saratoga was $135.00 in March of 2022.
Resorts that were not bought back by DVC during this time, either because no contracts were sold or Disney Vacation Club chose to not buy any back, were: Aulani, A Disney Resort and Spa, Disney’s Beach Club Villas, Disney’s BoardWalk Villas, Boulder Ridge Villas at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, The Villas at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel, The Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort, Disney’s Old Key West, Disney’s Polynesian Villas and Bungalows, Disney’s Riviera Resort and Disney’s Vero Beach Resort.
Note that the ROFR numbers for the month may not match up with the numbers in our DVC average resale price monthly series. This is because contract sales often take more than thirty days from start to finish and details can be accounted for in different months.
Thoughts on Disney ROFR DVC Stats
Knowing the recent Right of First Refusal monthly buyback high price that Disney paid is important. It can help you make sure you bid competitively and have a greater chance at a successful resale purchase. It’s especially important at resorts like Disney’s Saratoga Resort and Spa that Disney is seemingly more interested in lately.
We noted last month that some of Disney Vacation Club’s buyback choices could be influenced by current Members adding on points. DVC also works to have an inventory that suits them and with Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas and Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa being some of the lowest per point price properties at Walt Disney World, they are beneficial to have in stock. Potential buyers want to see a range of options regarding price. While these two resorts may have two of the lowest prices at Walt Disney World, they are still a pricey buy if you go the direct route at $200 per point. Check back next month to keep up with the Disney ROFR DVC prices and buybacks.
