Previously ROFR for SSR never happened, now it does occasionally, most of the time it is passing.
Thanks for the information!

This is sheer speculation on my part, but I can see a couple other variables that may impact DVD's decision to exercise ROFR.

First, DVD is required to retain 2% of the total points at each resort. Except for AKV and BLT, I don't know what percentage DVD owns at each resort. If DVD's holdings are approaching 2%, then it may need to reacquire points just to stay above that percentage.

Second, it would not surprise me if DVD has set a budget for its ROFR team and the team has to stay within that budget. This might be a bad example, but DVD might give the ROFR team $50,000 to reacquire OKW deeds. The team buys up to $50,000 worth of points, but it won't get any more money until the newly purchased deeds have been resold. If the ROFR team's money is all tied up in deeds awaiting closings, it doesn't have any money to buy another deed. So a resale that DVD might normally ROFR could slip through because the ROFR team is temporarily short of funds. This could also explain why DVD sometimes ROFRs deeds early and sometimes much later in the 30-day ROFR period.

I believe there is a lot of truth to what you are saying. Last time DVC acquired tons of property via ROFR was around April 2 (first Monday or Tuesday after Easter). Timing also happend to be the beginnging of 2nd qaurter from a financial accounting stand point. Coincidence????

Maybe. But I think the recent round of ROFR activity timing had a lot more to do with the March web cast promotion and the fact that the points they had in inventory for the older resorts went much faster than they anticipated.

This is an interesting point that has me thinking. Maybe DVD does not ROFR to fill the wait list, but instead tries to sell the inventory of sold out resorts that they currently have, and then exercise ROFR to replenish their inventory. Just one of many possible explanations. I think I'm going to apply for a job at Member Administration and get to the bottom of this.

I definitely think the increase in ROFR activity is a lot due to web cast promo & price increases. However, I believe they must have a given budget for ROFR & contracts bought back must fall within certain financial parameters, profit margins, & such. Perhaps, that's why so much many were ROFR's during the beginning of April instead of taking some at the end of March?

Well, fortunately for me - I leave for a cruise on Saturday and will hopefully be too preoccupied to think about it! At least until day 16 Then I'll be a hot mess for another 2 weeks.

So cross your fingers and don't worry about it since you can't do anything about it now anyway.

Good luck
This is how I was feeling.... But, you're right! I did the best I could, and there's nothing I can do now! I'll do my best to wait it out and not worry about it.

I don't know how you guys do this over and over!!!

I became attached to this contract as soon as the seller said yes!

That's what I was going to say

It's also easier if it isn't your first purchase since one then already has points to play with.

Those last two comments made me laugh. You guys are so anti-emotional about DVC...just like me.

They're both totally right about not getting too attached to contracts. With DVC purchases, you've got to take the long view. You're going to have the points for decades, so whether it takes two months or eight months to find the right contract, you're still going to have plenty of time to enjoy the points.

And the guys are right, it is much easier to chill during the process when you've already have a contract and you're not missing out on booking anything. Just take a deep breath and step away from the Purchase DVC board for a few weeks. The ROFR panic snowballs and and makes everyone way more antsy than they need to be. Try the trip report board. And dream about future trips.

A lot of contracts were taken in March actually the majority were mid March to the beginning of April but not recorded until April. Not only web cast but announcement of direct price increase came about end of Feb and went into effect March 19 - by that time they were TAKING A BUNCH of contracts.

I don't know. I have points to play with (not a lot), but I was still stressed out! But then again, I'm an "immediate gratification" kinda gal, so I really didn't like the process. It's the "not knowing" that gets me. My OKW contract was I think in the last week of the 30 days when I heard it got ROFRd. It was hard to hear, specially when it's SUCH a good deal


It's a lot better if you take the make and offer and forget about it approach.

I'm kinda waiting for my Wyndham points to transfer, so I am also in wait mode but at least I KNOW I'll get it whenever they finally get done with it.

I know a lot have been taken in recent months. However,so many more were taken on the first or second day of April- It seemed like nothing passed according to the boards.

This is my problem... more than anything it's the not knowing that is killing me. If I knew it was a 'YES', but it took months to get the points I think I would be fine. It's the waiting and hoping, just to probably be told no that is killing me.
