Buying an off site resort for the purpose of staying at WDW is risky and as mentioned, not one that is advised if you have no intention of using it there.

First, when you buy, you are buying the right to stay at your home resort only. As long as the resort stays a member of the club, you will have the right to book other resorts in the club. However, Disney has the right to remove a resort from a club at any time. While unnlikely to happen, if they were going to do it, I think VB and HH would be the ones to take the hit and I think its important that any potential owner does realize this.

The other problem, IMO, about owning outside of WDW is that you will be forced to wait until the 7 month window to book. Things are becoming harder to book and the more owners that are added to the system, the difficulty will continue.

And, while getting something is usually not a problem, what you get and where could become an issue. You may up having to book a larger room than you want, or split stay because you can't get all the nights you want at one resort.

At least owning at WDW, you can book during home resort time, and then change out at 7 months...but, at least you will have your trip booked and a place to stay...at that point, any trading you can do will be a plus!

The high dues at vero will quickly chip away your savings. A better plan is to buy ssr- you get lower dues, a reasonably long contract and an 11 month window to book at WDW. That said, if you really want to buy offsite to save money on point price, hilton head will give you dues a little lower. Plus, the resort is great and if you would like to vacation there the 11 month window for summer is needed.

It has been that low in the past and still was hard to sell so I don't share your enthusiasm for the price and reselling later, IMO VB is over priced at $40 now. In addition, one would still lose money on say 200 points for 5-7 years buying in at $50 and selling at $40 compared to SSR.

It might work but is risky.

VB has high MF's that will quickly eat up your per point purchase cost. VB has already suffered one hurricane and guess what happens when the next one hits.

You will have a perennial disadvantage against people that are making use of their 11 month booking window at the resorts at WDW. The low cost standard rooms may be gone at the 7 month period and you may need to book more room than you want costing points.

Most will tell you here (through lots of experience with DVC and Disney) that it is best overall if you buy where you want to stay. If you are a regular Disney vacationer the parks give way a bit to how much you want to do things at the resorts.

I don't have "enthusiasm" over VB. I was just providing the facts of the current price comparison. It will cost them in the long run to buy VB. Buying SSR makes more sense.

If they want VB to save $$ now they CAN always sell it. And of course it would be at a lost. But they would have received years of stays.

I DO NOT RECOMEND BUYING VB TO SAVE EVEN TODAY.

Sorry if I misunderstood, I thought you were suggesting they could buy VB for $50 now and sell in 5-7 years for around $40 and come out. I don't believe either to be accurate (resale price then or reasonable outcome).
