Here's one more thing to consider...

You will rarely, if ever, need the 11-month booking window at SSR. If you really love AKV (and those value rooms are a bargain) then you should seriously consider buying there. You will need the 11-month window at AKV. We went through the same thoughts when we bought. We love OKW and we would have no problem staying there.... But we also love AKV and we'd be disappointed if we ever got shut out. We also bought just 100 points so those value rooms (particularly the 1BR) are very appealing. I knew that we would more than likely never get shut out of OKW if booked inside of 7 months, but AKV is a different story. We decided on AKV and the value rooms are perfect for us!

We purchased 210 points in 2009 direct from Disney at AKV. We have never looked back. Prior to DVC we only stayed in values (except for a gift trip from my MIL where we stayed at POFQ). Yes, we were annual WDW visitors and knew that was not going to change. So when we I read on here I could get points with a discount we bought. I didn't know much about resale at the time.

We used our points to get 2 value studios in Oct/Nov 2012 and then again for this coming Nov. So we are staying for 8 nights with us using one studio and my parents in another (a gift to them) so we have points left over for another short trip. We do not have children either.
We sound alike only I expect we are a bit older and in our 40s.

DVC has really changed the way we vacation in Disney. We enjoy returning to the studio and are no longer Disney Commandos. We don't have to be at the parks for rope drop because we know we will be returning in a few months. It has helped us take a spring trip in addition to the the annual fall trip if I play the numbers right.

We enjoy the decor of AKV and the remote feel and location. We do not have to be close to a park and I like the inside corridor/hotel feel as opposed to the condo feel. SSR is very big and very quiet, and beautiful in its own way. Now that we own at AKV I am so glad we have our points there. After the first couple of trips it WILL MATTER where your home resort is...so be sure you pick the best fit for you.

I think you will find the ammenities and convienence of the DVC resorts a great option for those who like staying on site for a yearly visit. It has only enhanced our vacations. Enjoy your search and let us know how it is going.

I'm so sorry! Another will come along.

I'm not really in a rush for a contract so I'm just waiting until the right one comes. I'm looking for 120-130 points at SSR or AKV and plan to start my offers at $50-55/point. We shall see if anything comes of it. I hope to find my contract and pass papers by August. I assume there will be a few false starts between now and then. Guess, I'll just enjoy the ride.


Good luck NHTikiBeckie and all the others looking!!! And thank you to everyone for your advice and support.

Too bad about those AKV contracts ...

AKV will probably run in the $65 pp area for that sized contract ... And I haven't seen many 120-130 point contracts ...

Most are 100, 150 or 160 ...

But don't get discouraged - just keep on top of things and something will turn up!!

Good Luck!!

PS. Those smaller contracts tend to go fast - so if you see one you REALLY like at the right price - you might just one to meet the Seller's price and not try to "deal" with him/her.

SSR is my first choice. I've seen a few contracts in the 120-130 range. I just don't know how low is "too-low" for my first offers. Since I'm not in a rush I thought I would start with a few $50/point offers and see if anyone is interested. I'm looking at the ROFR pass/fail board and the most recent sales listed are for $60, $55, $50 and $50/point. I would be thrilled to get a contract for $50/point.

Gotta, say... I am a happy girl to be doing this!! I feel so blessed.
