How to Find the Best DVC Resale Contract

If you’re wondering how to find the best DVC resale contract, you’re in the right place. DVC Resale Experts has a resale DVC listings page with currently available, and some pending, listings. Here you’ll also find specific details on each listing to help your search along like the estimated amount of savings and all of the contract details like Use Year, Points Available and Deed Expiration. In this sense ‘best’ really means the best fit for you and your personal preferences and needs. Vacations are one of the happiest parts of life and buying Disney timeshare gives you magical trips year after year. Make the most of it by carefully considering your options. Here are some tips and things to think about for how to find the best DVC resale contract for you.

How to Find the Best DVC Resale Contract

Be choosey with your Home Resort

A good rule to follow for Disney Vacation Club is to buy where you want to stay. The flexibility is exciting and there are so many amazing resorts, all with their unique amenities and locations. However, let’s not forget the helpful benefit that is the eleven month Home Resort booking window. Depending on when you’re booking, planning just seven months out at other resorts might be more complicated with availability. The Home Resort booking advantage and the security it provides is something to keep in mind as you choose which resort you’d like to call home. Also note that there are some restrictions with resale DVC Memberships. For example, if you purchase resale DVC, you can only book at Disney’s Riviera Resort if it’s your Home Resort. Also, if you purchase resale DVC with Riviera as your Home Resort, you can not book elsewhere. At this time, the original fourteen DVC resorts can all be booked freely with resale. That means if you buy resale DVC at Disney’s Beach Club Villas you can book other places based on availability.

Pick a Use Year that makes sense

Your Use Year is when your new points are put into your account each year. It also comes into play for banking points and matters in regards to trip cancellations. For example, a DVC Member with a June Use Year needs to bank their points by January 31st. DVC Resale Expert Lauri gives this advice regarding Use Year: ‘For families who travel at different times throughout the year, use year may not be as important as for a family who tends to travel at one particular time. If traveling at one time of year, a family should keep in mind two things: banking windows and cancellation policies. The best use year for a family traveling at the same time of year each year is the one right before they typically travel. If open to it, the few months preceding their travel could also be workable use year options.’

Finding the perfect Point Value

Here’s something to take the pressure off. The perfect resale DVC contract Point Value does not exist. Members usually borrow points from the year before or bank points for the year after when booking. That’s totally fine! Get a basic idea for what seems like a good point value for you based on the Disney Vacation Club point charts.
