How much per point for DVC?

Does anyone have the original price per point for the DVC resorts? Just curious. I guess I can see the new ones now, but all the others?

Thanks

You can find the current prices at DVCNews.com...there are also posts from those who purchased at OKW years ago. I want to say it was in the 50's/per point range.

Correction: I know BWV was in the 50's or 60's when it first opened... so those folks that are reselling now have enjoyed their points for many vacations and are now getting back a nice profit over what they paid for their points originally. Talk about a great deal!

(I need to learn to call the folks for details BEFORE making the first post on a topic!!!)

BWV was the first DVC property... it opened in '96. Contracts for BWV expire in 2042, so they have 32 years left. So yep, those owners enjoyed years of fun and now are getting quite a return for their investment!

Correction: The posters below are correct; OKW was first. Oops!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought OKW was the first DVC property. Also, if you sell your points you can't sell them for more than what you paid for them. There is no profit to be made.

I don't see how you can think the people who purchased their points for OKW or BWV are not selling their points for more than what they paid... Yes, they had annual maintenance fees that covered the expenses over the years, but the price they paid per point is lower than the price per point they can receive through resale, which equals a profit. What makes you think they cannot sell their points for more than they paid?

OKW was the first DVC. I believe BWV was second opening in 1996.

Correct. And if BWV cost $60.00 per point (I've never heard of it for $40.00, I believe OKW started at $50 or just above), we started looking in 1999 and it was in the low 60's. We bought in early 2000 and paid $65.00 per point. So if BWV is going for the high 70's to mid 80's on the resale market, that's what we'd base our asking price on IF we were to sell

So, yes, an owner can sell for more than what they paid.

Just called mom and dad to find out, 'cuz it was driving me nuts! They paid $59/point pre-opening for their BWV points. They also had looked at OKW at the time, which was still being offered direct from Disney.

If I'm wrong I'll admit it. I was told when I purchased originally that if I were to sell I could not sell the property for more than what I originally paid. Disney can purchase a property thru ROFR and then resell for a higher price. That's why the prices vary so much. I'm interested in finding the correct answer to this.

All resale purchases must go thru Disney's ROFR where DVC has the opportunity to purchase the resale at the same terms already accepted by the seller. DVC does not publish their ROFR levels and they have varied greatly over the years, but there is nothing to prevent a member from selling a contract for more than they paid. DVC's ROFR is deigned to allow DVC to purchase contracts they feel are being sold for too little. We sold a contract last year for $20 per point more than we paid after 12 years of ownership and it passed ROFR with no problem.

You can see reports of recent ROFR activity in a thread on the DVC Operations board which tracks ROFR results.
