Haha Well, does the bill at least come with some Mickey ears on it or some pixie dust in the envelope?

I think we'll opt for the monthly payment so as to not add to the stack of bills that always follow the holidays! (Just curious, how does one sign up for the monthly payment by the way? )
I actually begin paying my following year's MF's monthly beginning in October and the final payment is not due until mid February. I think it is great that DVC works a monthly payment plan. I have other timeshares where the dues can only be paid in one payment. Ugh!

I'm waiting on rofr on a 250 pt BWV contract @ $60 pp. I keep hoping that I didn't offer to much (only 72 2013 pts), as others are getting $50 and $55 deals, but then I also don't want to lose the contract in rofr. Does this seem like a typical price for a contract like this? Contract through Timeshare Store.

I keep wondering about these Fidelity contracts as I don't see any of the really low contracts on there. Am I missing something?




Learning a lot reading the boards!

Whether or not you paid too little or too much is subjective. I will say, however, that paying extra as "insurance" to pass ROFR is money wasted...especially at a resort with a very low instance of ROFR activity.

I didn't add extra for insurance for rofr. $60 pp seemed like a reasonable price, but now seeing people get contracts for $50 and $55 pp makes me wonder about the price is all.

I apologize if I misunderstood what you were saying or offended you. To your point, BWV contracts are highly desirable right now, so many people are willing to pay higher prices simply to get one. My feeling is that $50 or $55 for BWV is the exception, not the rule these days. Congrats on your purchase.

You still saved 50% buying resale- plus you don't have any maint fees til 2014? Extra points would have been an added bonus but plenty of people are having to settle for semi-stripped BWV contracts due to the current lack of supply! 50-55/ point is not an easy price to come by! As for Fidelity Pricing you must stalk the site and when the few loaded, well priced new listings pop up you must hope you are the first one to submit an offer. Usually a lot of competition for those!

I just passed ROFR a couple of days ago on a contract for 200 pts at BWV for $50/pt. It was listed for $50/pt the previous night. I called 5 minutes after Fidelity opened and offered full price. I knew it would not last long, and turns out several people called after I did. Bottom line is, I found out the seller was behind on their MF's and could not afford them anymore, thus the reason for the low price for a quick sale. I happened to be at the right place at the right time and it worked out for me. The low price contracts are out there, but they do not last long and you have to jump on them before anyone else. Good luck on passing ROFR and your search

I am quite pleased with the 50% savings over buying direct, plus, you are correct, no fees until 2014. Guess if I would like to add to this contract or pick up another, I will have to watch the lists carefully and see if anything pops up.

Thanks for the good wishes with rofr! If all goes well, I should find out right before my birthday.

So let me think then.. How do they get bigger comissions? I think we know who they work for..

I doesn't seem looking at the fee schedules that its worth loosing a sale over the 1,000.00 to 2,000.00 negotiations on a given contract usually are. I mean if you look at fidelity closing on their site the difference between selling a 7500.00 contract and a 6500.00 contract really isn't that much. I may be wrong. I think some of the confusion seems to be the role or realtors in FL. Under normal circumstances the realtor represents the seller unless he has a buyers contract. I think I read somewhere that in the timeshare contract they represent the contract. Again I maybe wrong. Just looked over fidelity fees just really doesn't seem to be a big difference in what they get paid for a 7000.00 vs a 10,000.00 contract. Something else funny is it seemed to change per resort as well. May just be individual contracts i'm seeing the difference in.

To suggest that the brokers would jeopardize a sale (not to mention their license) over what amounts to $50 in commissions is laughable. Remember, even if they squeeze out a few extra dollars per point, they only get 10% of that. It's a numbers game. They get paid by moving a lot of contracts, not by micromanaging the price per point of individual contracts.
