First VGF resale contracts hit the market

Saw the tweets from the broker a little while ago. Two contracts, both Dec. UY. 100 points and 35 points. $130 per point each.

Serious and immediate buyers remorse? Huge life event?

Maybe someone who wanted a fixed week instead....
It's kind of crazy to be selling this soon. Have they even been able to stay there yet (it opens in Oct, right?)?

I would imagine it's stripped. Right? 2013 and 2014 points being used right around opening, and closing delayed until the trip is complete? Or 2013 and 2014 points were transferred out, somehow the seller thinks they're making a profit? Would it even be possible to come out ahead?

Edit- just saw its dec use year. So I guess the trip right around open using 2 years of points doesn't make sense, unless closing is pushed to December.

Edit #2 - it's it full points on both how in the hell? Gotta go with pp who said major regret or life event

With the higher closing costs, buyer wouldn't be saving much at all, if anything. I am surprised, though, that they aren't pending.

Even with closing cost on the 100 point contract you are looking at about 135.00PP which is a savings of over 1500.00 from Disney.

But you lose all the direct purchase benefits such as DCL, for only $10 difference... not worth it.

Good luck booking any of those direct purchase incentives with 100 points though...

It can't be stripped because we GVF owners can't use our points till the resort opens in Oct... although i suppose if they had one booked and then a delayed close...

They could have used the points to book another resort, though that would be kind of silly.

I'm pretty sure when I bought Aulani before it opened I wasn't allowed to use the points ANYWHERE until Aulani actually did open.

It was a few years ago so i could be wrong about that. And then again, VGF might be different anyway.

They can't use the points until the resort opens, but they can make a reservation and then then closing would be after the reservation is completed. They also could have transferred the points.

You are correct. When you use Aulani points to book a different resort, you are essentially trading a room at Aulani for a room somewhere else. Until Aulani opened (or more specifically, until the specific Unit you purchased at Aulani opened) you had nothing to trade so you could not use your Aulani points anywhere until that time.

No you are correct points cannot be used anywhere until the resort opens.

I guess it must be a huge unexpected life event as I can't see a logical reason why anyone would be in this situation by choice
