Is it a good time to buy DVC

If you’re considering buying a DVC Membership or adding on points, you might be thinking about the timing and wondering, ‘is it a good time to buy DVC?’ It’s always helpful to consider if a market fluctuates prior to buying and especially before making a large purchase like Disney timeshare. Let’s weigh it out and discuss.

Is it a good time to buy DVC?

If you’re hoping for an answer that shares details of a market that goes up and down and has a prime time to buy when the costs are low, this isn’t quite that kind of thing. There are some details to consider, though, to help you decide if it’s a good time for you personally to buy DVC.

DVC direct vs resale prices

When buying Disney Vacation Club direct, the prices are fixed and there’s no negotiating. Disney Vacation Club doesn’t have sales but they do have special offers on resorts they are actively selling from time to time. The savings are often greater when you buy higher point values. If you’re intrigued by savings then you absolutely must compare the prices for DVC direct vs resale. Buying DVC resale means you’re buying a Membership from a Member instead of from Disney directly. Resale prices are often thousands lower depending on the details of the contract. For example, Disney Vacation Club just raised prices for Disney’s Old Key West Resort to $200 per point. On the DVC resale market, Disney’s Old Key West Resort is selling for an average of $126 per point so far in 2022. That’s a savings of over $7,000 if you’re buying 100 points. Take a look at our resale DVC listings to see current pricing. You can also follow along in our monthly series. Here is our most recent pricing post: DVC Average Resale Price March 2022. The data shows while prices continue to rise over time, the numbers often fluctuate slightly from month to month but there isn’t a reliable pattern to follow. However, in almost all cases, resale DVC has standout savings that will absolutely surprise you. Resale makes whenever you find the contract you want, the best time to buy.

When is the best time to buy Disney Vacation Club?

If you’re paying full price for Deluxe tier hotel stays at Disney Resorts every year, the sooner you buy Disney Vacation Club, the better off you are. It’s almost like renting when you’re certain you’re ready to buy. DVC raises per point prices each year and that usually has an effect on resale DVC point prices. The money you spend on Deluxe tier resort rooms can go toward your DVC points purchase. That amount could probably cover a fair part of a resale DVC Membership considering how many points you’re buying and where. Even stays at Moderate and Value Resorts have gone up tremendously. If you’ve decided on DVC, putting it off and paying for rooms in cash isn’t the best move. Consider how much you’re paying for rooms. It could be enough for your DVC down payment.

Is it a good time for you to buy DVC?
