Congrats to all those who made it past the scary ROFR monster. I know he has been particularly hungry lately.

To the couple of you who he snapped up, sorry, that sucks.

Not to add to the conspiracy theories, but does it seem that the ROFR monster has a taste for Feb and Dec UY's, in addition to loaded contracts?

Disney Saratoga Springs
150 points - December Use Year
23 points left from 2012, all points 2013+
$50/point

Our timeline so far:

2/07/13 - Started researching and looking for a resale DVC contract
2/15/13 - Found contract and negotiated price with buyer
2/19/13 - Signed contracts
2/20/13 - Contract sent to ROFR
3/14/13 - Disney waived ROFR

Congrats!!! That is awesome. Our SSR for an OCT UY at $58pp (150) was ROFR'd. We are trying again with a Dec UY that is similar to yours with a few points from 2012 and paid WAY more ($62)! This gives me hope!

It's what they are going for right now I am afraid... It's a sellers market it appears

I passed just a week ago on an Aug contract at SSR. No 2012 pts but all 2013 points $52.50.
Glad you passed ROFR Sil. I've been looking for your post. Now to just get through the closing.....

Is the price spread between resale and the new March 20th prices enough to make it worth Disney's while to actively encourage direct buyers to take the older resorts if they can't afford the more expensive ones.
I've been wondering how the price increase will effect the resale market and if Disney had been active in ROFR recently knowing the increase was coming. Effective March 20th, the direct purchase price will reportedly change as follows...

AKV from $140 to $145
AUL from $140 to $145
BCV from $115 to $130
BWV from $115 to $130
HHI from $80 to $115
OKW from $100 to $130
SSR from $110 to $130
VB from $75 to $115
VWL from $102 to $130
VGC from $130 to $165

Depending on how the resale market responds, Disney might continue to be active via ROFR. If the resale market continues at present prices, the difference is substantial enough for Disney to continue to be active IF they are able to sell direct at a volume large enough to empty existing inventory in a relatively short period of time. If the price increase causes their direct sales to dive and more people go to the resale market, I would think Disney would be less active via ROFR. On the other hand, the direct purchase price increase might cause the resale market prices to increase accordingly in which case, the ROFR activity might not change much. Of course, all of this is a great big WAG because NOBODY knows Disney's criteria, process, thinking or spin-the-wheel method of deciding on contracts to excercise ROFR!

Sorry too hear that. Looks like SSR is getting to be more popular with the direct buyers.

You may be right. Glad I bought last summer. . I think I would be priced out if I were shopping now.

Wow, they seem to be inconsistent with the ROFR on SSR contracts. I haven't seen any activity on AKL being ROFR'd lately so I am crossing my fingers my contract goes through, but it is a Dec UY and has banked 2011 points...we will find out next Tues/Wed.

Our BLT contract closed today!!! Hopefully, it won't take that long for them to load the points into our membership. Offer made on January 27th, sent to ROFR on January 28th, passed ROFR February 26th, received closing documents on March 5th, and closed today, March 14th. 46 days from offer to ownership!!!

Congrats! What a relief! I feel like I have been waiting a month and its only been 10 days! March has always been a long month for me - I think I made it worse this year

Keep us posted as to how long it takes to get the points loaded!
