17 Jun Does DVC Resale Go Up and Down in Price?
Whether you’re considering buying or selling DVC points, research is always a good idea. Informed decisions are the best decisions. Disney Vacation Club is a valuable timeshare and the resale DVC market continues to show demand. That might leave you wondering, ‘does DVC resale go up and down in price?’
Does DVC Resale Go Up and Down in Price?
The short answer is yes but not in the way you think. DVC resale prices fluctuate from month to month but continue to rise over time overall. As Disney Vacation Club direct prices go up, resale prices often follow. When it comes to reselling Disney Vacation Club there isn’t a reliable pattern to follow. The data doesn’t give us an annual, reliable time period that always turns out to be the best time to buy or the best time to sell DVC points. Each month here on the blog we cover the DVC resale average price from the month prior. This series presents data based on DVC Resale Experts actual sales. This gives potential buyers and sellers a look at what to expect in terms of what they can spend on, or make from, resale DVC.
The best time to sell DVC points
If you are doing research in hopes of finding the best time to sell DVC points, consider the following. The best time to sell DVC Membership is when you’ve decided you’re personally ready to sell. Yes, DVC resale overall seems to go up in value over time. However, if you consider the amount you pay in annual dues each year, waiting to sell may not be a more profitable choice. In many cases, the longer you’ve owned your contract the more it’s worth today. However, calculating what you pay in dues each year compared to how much DVC resale goes up each year may not present waiting to sell as a solid option.
The best time to buy DVC resale
If you are looking for the best time to buy DVC resale, here’s something to consider. The best time to buy is probably before you book your next vacation. Booking Disney hotel stays with cash is quite pricey. If you book a weeklong stay at Disney, especially if it’s at a Deluxe tier resort, it’s likely that cost could cover a decent amount of a Membership.
You won’t find that the resale DVC market fluctuates consistently enough to wait until next year, or a few years from now, to get a guaranteed better buy. In fact, you might end up spending what could have bought a small contract on booking rooms instead. In most cases, the best time to buy DVC resale will be as soon as you find the right contract for you. Typically the earlier you buy, the better off you are. Those who originally purchased Disney Vacation Club when it launched over thirty years ago paid around just $50 per point. The lowest per point price available direct from Disney Vacation Club today is $190 per point at Boulder Ridge Villas at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge. Resale DVC prices are significantly lower but do rise on average over time.
