This is going to be a long, exhausting process!
I made a similar offer when we bought our resale points. They ended up accepting my offer except asked to split the closing costs, I agreed to this. As others said, everything is negotiable, so I disagree with agent on the negotiation of closing costs.

Make the offer YOU are comfortable with, not the agent. They get their commission either way. They are 100% incorrect to say it is not typical to have the seller pay closing. It really does not matter to the seller at all how it is structured as long as the total amount in their pocket is acceptable to them.

It is in the broker's best interest for YOU the buyer to pay the closing costs since the buyer would be more likely to accept that offer. Therefore it might speed up the process for them brokering the deal. (Less back and forth).

If you are in a rush to book a trip by a certain date and can afford to pay closing costs, it might make sense to do that. If you are in no rush and just looking for a good deal then why not at least try to negotiate? My 2 cents since I have not yet bought into DVC but that is how I have been thinking in terms of the offer process.

We put in an offer this morning of $5 less PP and seller pays closing.

So, I check the new listings just a little bit ago, and guess what? That contract has been relisted, asking for $2 more PP than the original listing, lol.

Somehow, I don't think we will end up with this contract.

As everyone has said, dont be afraid to deal. We are currently waiting on a SSR200 that was listed at 80, it had the UY we wanted but there was no way I was paying that. So I called the agent and tossed a number of 62 and split closing and MF. Was I floored when they came back with a yes. You never know, cast the line enough times and you will get a bite. Now to try and pass ROFR. Time will tell, but the seller is happy his contract is sold one way or the other. Remember you never know why someone is selling.

Wow, I just had seller accept $69 on SSR200 and thought I was on the lower end. $62 is incredible.

we still have to get passed the dreaded ROFR wall, its a big one, just hope we can scale it., This is the first one I have agreed to split cost, we usually have seller pay both. But figured out with the whole price and maybe Disney wouldn't want to split, to give it a try.
