How Do I Buy DVC Resale?

The Disney timeshare is an exciting opportunity for those who love to take magical vacations every year. Though a great investment into your future vacations, Disney Vacation Club is still quite pricey. However, there is another option you should know about. Here’s where resale Disney Vacation Club comes in. Resale DVC is basically buying someone else’s contract but at a far better price than you would pay buying it from Disney. It’s permitted by Disney, a complete owner transfer and the contract goes into your name. Resale mostly works the same as buying direct. The biggest difference is the price. Members often pay thousands of dollars less to buy comparable contracts. Perhaps you’re wondering, ‘how do I buy DVC resale and how does it work?’ Let’s go over the basics and some things you might be wondering. There’s a lot more information about resale where this came from on our blog and you can always contact the Experts with any specific questions you may have.

How Do I Buy DVC Resale?

Disney Vacation Club reselling is actually done outside of Disney by another company. This is because Disney Vacation Club does not have a resale department. When Disney does buy back a contract, they repackage it as a new contract for someone else but at full price. All actual resale purchases are done outside of the company on the resale DVC market. It is possible to buy a contract from an individual seller but it’s not recommended. You don’t want to risk missing any of the important details on such a big spend. The resale DVC process is very similar to a real estate transaction. It’s much easier when you have an experienced Expert on your side with professionally written contracts and combed over processes in place. For the best possible experience, use a licensed real estate professional that specializes in resale DVC. DVC Resale Experts is dedicated to helping families, couples and individuals make their vacation dreams come true!

In best practices for learning how to buy DVC resale, you’ll first want to consider the differences between resale and direct to make sure it’s a good fit for you. There are a few things not included with resale like discounts, Member extras and all of the flexibility you get buying direct.

Then, the best place to start is considering your budget. Remember resale DVC is considerably lower in price which may open up your options for where you can buy and how many points you can purchase. Once you know about how much you want to spend you can start to weigh the next two factors. Picking a home resort and point value are pretty important parts of buying DVC. You get to book eleven months out at your home resort versus seven months elsewhere. The amount of points you buy determines how long your stays can be. The longer you want to stay each year, the more points you should own. Take a look at the DVC point charts to get an idea of what might be a good number for you. Note they vary by resort and date you plan to travel.
