Are there other DVC resale costs buyers and sellers should know about?

Just like in traditional real estate, resale DVC Membership transactions have closing costs. Usually the buyer pays closing costs but this is negotiable. However, there is a $150 estoppel fee paid by the seller. Closing costs vary based on the state the Home Resort is located in and the price of the sale. To provide a general idea, if the resale DVC contract you’re buying is $20,000, closing costs in Florida would come in at about $678. Out of the current 15 Disney Vacation Club Resorts, 12 are located in Florida including all those at Walt Disney World Resort. At Disneyland Resort in California, The Villas at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa closing costs are mostly comparable and the same goes for Disney’s Hilton Head Island Resort in South Carolina. Closing costs are different and more expensive for Hawaii where Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa is located. Resale DVC buyers may also need to pay annual dues up front depending on when the contract is purchased. Annual dues vary by resort and are paid depending on how many points you have. For example, annual dues at The Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa are $7.01 per point as of 2022. Based on this, if you buy 100 points your dues would be $701.00 for the year.
