they actually used to be "hotter" when DVC refused to sell anything under 160 pts to new members...

So they now allow the sale of small contracts to new members? I didn't know that.

They always sold smaller contracts direct when you were already a member. They lowered the new membership buyin to 50 in some cases now.

yep. as z28wiz already said, they've allowed some to buy in with as few as 50 pts.

Yup. I called in Dec to inquire about buying 30 direct HH points and was told CC would be @$50. We passed on buying direct and tried to buy a resale and when the sellers cancelled the contract, we called Disney again and asked to buy 40-50 HH points direct. It was now January and we were told CC would be @$100 and then were told we'd have to go on wait list (we did for a week and then pulled off to buy AKV resale). Seems like the direct CC are slowly creeping upwards.

Glad smaller contracts are now sold for new buyers.... more options for adding on should these be sold later on. Until now, had to wait for those who added on to sell their small contracts.

There are a lot of very optimistic sellers out there just now. Had a look at BLT on Fidelity and many were selling at close to or higher than disney

see, when a typical non-DISboard DVC owner hits a rough patch (loss of job/divorce/bankruptcy), they call disney and say "i can't afford this any more, do you buy it back or something?"

disney says, "no, but here is our recommended reseller, fidelity. good luck with that..."

so fidelity has more than the usual of sellers who 1) still owe too much on their original contract and 2) don't really understand the process (sometimes leaving more than the usual issues for would-be buyers).

One reason that Fidelity may sell at a higher price is due to their business relationship with Disney. They pay Disney for the listing.

I actually think Fidelity had the best prices out of the 4 brokers I track. Not on EVERY listing...but overall they seem to have the best prices and the most inventory.

I have an offer out on a slightly packed BWV contract with Fidelity. The asking price was $65. I haven't seen a BWV contract near that price anywhere else lately.

Thats a pretty good deal. What made you change your mind? You started a thread pretty much saying DVC wasnt worth it.

I'm almost convinced his account is used by two people, maybe spouses, one of whom thinks DVC is great and worth it, and the other who thinks it is a big rip-off...

Have you looked today, some of the asking prices I saw this morning were ridiculous as high as $160 per point. Not all but many were super inflated to the point where you almost might as well go direct.
