This comes in a bit higher than $136 from the month prior but this number can fluctuate quite a bit each month. It really depends on which properties were sold during the time period and the amount of points on each of those contracts. Each home resort can vary greatly in per point prices. Read on for all the details in the DVC average resale price October 2022 edition of our monthly update series.
Understanding DVC Resale Prices
The DVC average resale price October 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 resort and amount of points on the contract. The amount of points available on any contract will play a role in determining the value as well. It’s also 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 Resorts Cost Different Amounts Per Point
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.
Is it a good time to buy DVC resale?
Timing a big purchase, or sale, can really be personal. Aside from market fluctuations, there are some other costs to consider. If you are trying to decide if it’s a good time to buy DVC resale, think about this. What you might spend on your Disney resort hotel stays, while waiting to buy a resale DVC contract, could be substantial. If you’ve decided DVC is right for you and you’re just waiting to see if prices will come down it could cost you. Especially if you’re staying at Deluxe tier resorts.
A quick search result showed a week in a water view room at Disney’s Beach Club Resort in September of 2023 would cost about $5800.00. Booking this kind of stay for a few years could pay for an entire resale contract. At the DVC resale average price October 2022 rate, a 125 point resale contract at this resort is listed for $21,125. At these prices, not including annual dues, four years at the room rental rate mentioned would buy a contract that would allow you to stay for many more years instead. 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 for the best prices each year.
Is it a good time to sell 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.
Remember DVC Resale Prices Can Be Negotiated
However, there is another exciting factor regarding pricing with resale. When buying direct, Disney Vacation Club sets all prices. These numbers are different for each resort, raised as DVC sees fit and nonnegotiable. When buying resale DVC or selling a Disney Vacation Club contract, it’s totally possible to negotiate. This can be very helpful for buyers and sellers. The Experts are happy to help you price realistically to help you meet your goals.
