What Owners Should Know: Tips for How to Sell Disney Vacation Club Points

When a Member sells their contract, it is considered a resale Disney Vacation Club contract.

A Member does not need to find their own buyer. However if you have a buyer and want a professional to write up your contract, oversee the sale, answer your questions, provide a detailed, estimated timeline and more, work with a licensed real estate broker. 

You do not have to own your contract for a long time in order to sell. If you’ve had a change of heart after only a few years or find yourself in hardship and preferring to have money instead of your contract, you can sell with no issue. The DVC resale price history shows resale prices can go up quite a bit in just a few years.

The process: When you sell Disney timeshare what happens?

Expect a complete transfer of ownership when selling Membership. No more annual dues! The process of selling your Disney timeshare might look a little something like this. First, get in touch with DVC Resale Experts or fill out your interest to sell online. You can call, use the website chat feature or email, using the method of communication that is most convenient for you. Getting the details of your Membership right is important like your home resort, point value, points available on the contract and owner information.

Your contract will be listed quickly, also considering our list of buyers who are seeking a certain kind of contract. Everything can be done digitally except for a few steps at the end that require a notary. You do not need to go to any Disney Destination to sell. It’s possible you’ll be matched with a buyer right away when your contract is listed. You could also wait to hear from an interested party. Once a buyer is found and you agree on a price, there is paper work to fill out, some back and forth with Disney and then a closing. Your Expert is happy to answer any questions about the process of selling your contract before, during and after.

FAQs: How to Sell Disney Vacation Club Points

Will Disney buy my DVC points?

At times, you may receive an offer to sell DVC back to Disney. This is not considered DVC resale. These per point prices are usually much lower than anything you could make when you sell Disney Vacation Club points on the resale market. 

It’s also possible to sell back to Disney with a DVC ROFR buyback. ROFR is a part of the DVC resale process where Disney gets to choose if they would rather buy a contract back instead of letting a resale transaction go through. When Disney chooses to buy back, it happens at the same per point rate the buyer would have purchased for. ROFR is written in the DVC contract and unavoidable. It’s not possible to request or ensure Disney will buy a contract back during the ROFR process. It doesn’t make much of a difference for sellers but can be disappointing for buyers when Disney buys their potential contract.

Can you make money when you sell Disney Vacation Club points?

Unlike other timeshares, Disney Vacation Club retains a fair value. It’s possible to be a Member, vacation with your contract for many years, and then sell Disney Vacation Club points and make your money back. Basically, with the way Disney prices go up, it makes sense for DVC to go up in price too.

What is the best time of year for selling Disney Vacation Club points?

There isn’t a guaranteed best time of year to sell DVC points. Selling DVC Membership as soon as you’ve decided it’s what you want to do might be your best option. Paying annual dues every year is always part of ownership until you sell. DVC goes up in price over the years but often fluctuates from month to month. We’ve seen early in the year be a time when resale prices are down. Even that trend was quickly upended as market variables changed this year. If financial return is your motivation for selling, talk to your Expert about how to sell DVC points resale for the most profit.

Is renting the same as selling DVC points? Can you rent DVC points out through Disney?

When owners are still deciding if they want to sell or not, renting can be a good option. Renting out your DVC points is different than selling DVC timeshare. Disney does not rent out a Member’s DVC points. There are online services that help Members rent out their points when they are not going to use them and don’t want to bank them. This can help pay for your annual dues when you’re deciding if you want to sell and prevent unused points from going to waste. 

It is good to know that if you have more points available, you will be able to sell your DVC contract for more money. This is one point to consider when deciding on if and when to sell.
