omg someone stop me with the addonitis. 320 enough?
 
I still haven't even STAYED with our GFV points, still don't know if our 160 SSR's are going to pass, and I just put in an offer on a 50 pointer at ANOTHER resort. A lowball, but still.

If we plan to go at least 1 week a year and want maximum flexibility (i.e. Christmas if we want it) in a 1 br, 320 points should cover us, right?

As long as you don't always want VGF, BLT (MK view) or AKV (concierge) you should be fine.
Xmas week for 1 bedroom:
AKV: 273-334 (422 concierge)
BLT: 347-465 (MK view)
BCV: 362
BWV: 306-357
OKW: 300
SSR/BWL: 318
VGF: 463-551

You are in your honeymoon phase. You will buy at several resorts, stay several times per year, buy more contracts, stay longer.

After a few years you will decide on which resorts you really like and start selling the ones you don't.

Been there, done that. We recently sold 8 contracts, bought 1 more and now have 16 contracts at 6 resorts. :thumbsup2

We don't buy anymore. We are maxed out at 449 in 3 contracts at 2 resorts. I don't want or need any more maintenance fees than I have now!

ain0004 08-16-2013 09:11 PM

400 here 4 contacts 2 different resorts. And wish we had 200 more!

DenLo 08-17-2013 10:27 AM

It doubt if it's enough it wasn't just for the two of us. But why not slow down now and try them out before you buy more? You might find owning at three resorts is too much. Especially since the one resort is just a small contract. Use them for a while and see how it goes. Welcome Home!

lovin'fl 08-17-2013 01:46 PM

Owners since 2006. Have 3 home resorts and 5 contracts for 425 points...still looking. :confused3

NoleFan 08-17-2013 01:49 PM

With resale prices as high as they are right now, I'm cured !

RebelSoul 08-17-2013 05:21 PM

13 years, 600 pts in 4 contracts, 2 home resorts. Still want more. We'll probably add-on again when there is another new DVC resort...hopefully the Poly.

We had 500 in three resorts and five contracts. We now have 325 in two resorts and three contracts. We sold two when selling was good and sold for more than we paid. We sold the two because we got tired of spending so much on annual member fees. I'm in the process of buying a nice Gulf Coast beach resort and that will be it.

We have 375 and I am wanting another 55 but thinking twice about it. We go every other year but like to stay in 2 bedrooms and treehouse villas. However in 8 years it will just be the two of us so we won't need all those points. Tempted to buy VGF but tempted to stay with 375

Daisyduck49 08-17-2013 07:39 PM

We have 530 pts in 5 resorts & love it!!

JustTinking 08-18-2013 06:07 AM

We have 500 pts in 2 resorts; in the process of buying 350 pts more and adding a home resort. Seems we're always looking to do more vacations and don't have enough pts to do it.
