I guess for $3000 more knowing that I won't be restricted and also knowing that I will not have to worry as much about the resort going under has helped make my decision.
I've used my existing contract to take 2 ski vacations at Keystone Resort, well worth the points IMO. Prices at Keystone have gone up and having more points available to do this type of trip just makes things easier.
I'm glad you were able to come to a decision. One quick note, we were comparing VB resale to SSR resale. If you decide to go direct, that changes things greatly. From a financial standpoint, the VB resale is actually the better deal, but the other challenges would still apply.

For me it boils down to this, If money is no object, buy on property in Orlando. If, though you have small children, money is an object and you don't want to waste 6 or 7 years while you save for more points then buy the VB points. Aside from peak times, you will find availability and your kids get to enjoy the extra days or larger rooms the points will buy. If I had it to do over again, I would have grabbed a bunch of Vero points while the kids were young and we were relatively poor. By the time I could buy a block where we really like to stay, the kids were older teenagers. Make the call based first on what you can afford to do.

I'd say that buying now knowing you were almost certainly going to pay more is a questionable decision if access alone were the desired endpoint. I'd also suggest that if it took one 6-7 years to save up the difference between say VB and SSR resale, either it wasn't really a priority for them OR they couldn't afford it anyway. I like VB and for one who has a reason to own there, I think it's a reasonable option for some (though I think non DVC timeshares are often a better choice for routine beach visits).

Red face VBR resales

Looks like a lot of the Vero Beach resales have been snatched up recently...

so unless you want a large point contract, not sure you could do now anyway....
