Understanding DVC Resale Prices
The DVC average resale price November 2022 lineup mostly falls in line with consistent, long term trends. Over time, we see prices fluctuate from month to month but continue to rise overall. DVC resale prices differ based on a variety of factors like the home resort and amount of points on the contract. The amount of points available on any single contract will play a role in determining the value as well. It’s good to note that contracts with more points typically sell for a little less per point, while smaller contracts may be priced a bit higher per point.

Why DVC Average Resale Prices Differ at Each Home Resort
As shown above, DVC resort per point prices can vary quite a bit. There are a few different factors influencing this. The resort listed on the contract makes a big difference. Some are more popular than others and demand keeps prices higher. For example, there are fewer options at Disneyland Resort. Because of this, The Villas at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel is quite high. Additionally, you’ll see that resorts at Walt Disney World Resort are among the highest in price. The location of a DVC resort, even within Disney property, can affect the price too. People love to be close to their favorite theme parks!
While enchanting in their own way, resorts outside of the most popular Disney Destinations usually have lower per point prices. We see this reflected in the charming seaside Disney’s Vero Beach Resort. When per point prices vary greatly at the same resort, it’s often because of the number of points on a contract. Also, it’s good to know some resorts like, Disney’s Old Key West Resort, may have one of two different deed expirations. This may cause a difference in per point prices as well but typically not as much as one might think.
Timing and Buying DVC Resale
Planning and timing any big purchase can be really personal. Aside from market fluctuations, there are other costs to think about. If you are trying to decide if it’s a good time to buy DVC resale, consider the following. Those who visit Disney every year are already putting quite a bit of money into resort hotel stays. Even at the best rates, Disney hotels can cost thousands for a typical weeklong resort stay. What you may spend on your upcoming Disney resort hotel stays, could be a hearty resale DVC down payment or purchase a small contract entirely. If you’ve decided DVC is right for you and you’re researching if prices will come down, know it’s probably best to act sooner than later. Especially if you’re staying at Deluxe tier resorts. We mostly see resale prices go up over time. Though prices go up and down, there isn’t a reliable time period we can count on consistently for the best prices each year.
DVC Average Resale Prices vs Booking Rooms
After a quick search, the price of a pool or marina view room at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort in mid July of 2023 would cost about $5650. Annual vacation costs this high really add up and, over time, could have paid for an entire resale DVC contract instead.
At the DVC average resale price November 2022 presents, a 150 point resale contract at this resort is listed for $25,350. This particular contract is even a little higher per point than some others at $169. At these prices, and not including annual dues, five years at the room rental rate mentioned above could buy a DVC contract outright that would allow for weeklong stays for decades instead. The difference is, as of 2022, there are more than 40 years left on Polynesian contracts. That means you could vacation for five years renting a room or for more than 40 years plus annual dues. At the current annual dues rate of $7.39 per point at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, a Member with a 150 points would pay $1108.50 each year. This number can go up nominally each year but doesn’t compare to how much hotel room rates rise.
Timing When Selling DVC Resale
The same goes with considering timing when it comes to those who want to sell DVC. Yes, we see DVC average resale prices staying strong over time and going up in many cases. However, if you know you are ready to sell, waiting may not be the best option. If you have a large contract especially, your annual dues can be quite a bit. This cost is totally worth it when you have a DVC contract you’re enjoying and loving. If you are wanting to sell though, this might be an unwanted cost. Yes, resale prices can go up over time but if the annual growth is less than annual dues you’re paying, you won’t come out ahead by waiting.
DVC Resale Prices Can Be Negotiated
When buying direct, Disney Vacation Club sets all prices. These numbers are different for each resort, raised as DVC sees fit and nonnegotiable for buyers. When buying resale DVC or selling a Disney Vacation Club contract, it’s totally possible to negotiate. That’s another reason Disney Vacation Club resale prices can vary greatly. Negotiating can be very helpful for buyers and sellers. The Experts are happy to help you price realistically so you can meet your goal.
