Disney Vacation Club is an exciting opportunity for those who love to vacation at Disney Destinations. Jumping in and committing to decades of magical trips is a dream come true for many. With an expense of this size, of course you’ll want to weigh your options when it comes to the amount of points you’ll need and choosing your Home Resort. It’s also helpful to be informed about more than the per point price but other costs that are part of the Disney Vacation Club Membership buying process. When it comes down to actually buying points you want to know all the details, especially those related to price. While resale DVC comes at a much better price than buying direct from Disney, there are still typical real estate related fees, like closing costs, on this timeshare opportunity. So how much are DVC resale closing costs? This blog post is meant to give you a vague idea based on figures available in early 2022. Please refer to your licensed real estate broker or title company for complete and accurate information based on your actual contract at the time of the sale.
How much are DVC resale closing costs?
Buyers pay closing costs that vary depending on where the property being purchased, or in this case the timeshare being purchased, is located. That means closing costs are different amounts based on what state your Home Resort is in. Another variable that determines how much closing costs are is the price of the contract itself. Some of the costs involved are fixed like the estoppel fee which is $150 but paid by the seller. Other costs are higher incrementally based on price, think a tier system, or higher directly based on price meaning the higher the price the higher that particular fee is. Since the states that Disney Vacation Club properties are located in have varying closing cost amounts, we will take a broad look at each individually. Also note that none of the following include fees that may be part of financed transactions.
