12 Jun What are DVC Resale Listings?
Disney Vacation Club is the Disney timeshare known as a best kept secret. Disney Vacation Club resale is an even better kept secret and helpful for potential buyers and sellers. For more than thirty years, Members have enjoyed booking flexible Disney Resort hotel stays with points. So what are DVC resale listings and why might they be important to you as someone who wants to buy or sell Disney timeshare? Read on for more information about DVC resale listings.
What are DVC Resale Listings?
The short answer is, a DVC resale listing is a detailed write up of Disney Vacation Club contract that’s being sold by a DVC owner. The concept is similar to real estate. A listing is essentially information about a Membership that is listed for sale.
This is different than and separate from contracts sold by The Walt Disney Company through Disney Vacation Club directly. When someone chooses to sell a Membership, that’s done outside of Disney. There isn’t a Disney Vacation Club reselling department. Instead, the DVC website says to those interested in selling, ‘You may independently find a licensed real estate broker.’ The company isn’t able to assess how much a Member’s vacation points are worth either but says in response, ‘Please contact a licensed real estate professional who has experience in handling timeshare to obtain a current market value of your Disney Vacation Club Membership.’ There is actually an entire resale industry that helps Members sell their contacts to new owners.
How DVC Resale Listings Help Sellers
If you decide to sell your Disney Vacation Club Membership, an online listing is how a potential buyer will be able to discover it. DVC Resale Experts has an active collection of DVC resale listings at all times. This list is constantly updated as contracts are sold and new contracts are listed. You just provide the information about your contract and the Experts take care of the rest. Resale is different than selling back to Disney. It is possible sometimes, as Disney may offer to buy a contract back, but selling a contract on the resale market ensures a much better return.
How DVC Resale Listings Help Buyers
As a buyer, DVC resale listings are helpful because you can easily peruse available options. The DVC resale listings on our site can also be organized by point value, resort, price and more, simply by clicking on one of these titles. There is often more transparency in resale than buying direct. When buying from Disney Vacation Club directly, it’s likely your Guide will prioritize properties the company is actively selling. Pricing is not always clear and accessible with other inventory or ‘sold out’ resorts as they’re called. With DVC resale listings it’s easy to see what’s available at any time, pricing and all other details. Of course, if you don’t see what you’re looking for you can join the DVC Resale Experts Buyer Wish List. You’ll be contacted when the contract you’re looking for magically appears. It’s also possible to negotiate with resale. That’s not something you can do with Disney. There are some differences between DVC resale and direct to be familiar with. The biggest difference is the price. Buyers often save thousands on resale when compared to direct.
