We are getting close to taking the plunge. This past week we met with a tour guide at DVC to get all the ins and outs necessary to take the plunge. After hearing about all the deals they are offering and figuring out what it would cost us, we have almost come to the conclusion that buying on the resale market makes more sense for us. Our tour guide told us that we could not in any way possible purchase points at BCV unless we bought a minimum contract with one of the resorts they are currently selling. BLT was appealing to us but the cost at 112 a point seems high when AKV is going for 104 a point.
Right now we are looking at purchasing at BCV or WLV. If money was not a factor, we would definitely do BCV hands down; however we can get WLV for nearly 15 a point cheaper.
After spending a week at AKV we came to the conclusion it was not for us due to a number of service related issues. My fear is that because WL is one of the less expensive deluxe resorts that we may find some of the same issues there. We have never had a problem at BC when we have stayed there and love the location. I know that WL is a boat ride to MK and we love the way the resort looked when we ate dinner there.
Our other concern is if we had to sell would WLV be harder to sell than BCV? For those of you who are members who bought on the resale market, how did you decide which resort you bought into?
I should also add that whichever resort we buy into will most likely be the one we have to stay at since we go every year for Christmas. Due to the busy time of year, we know that we will need to book at the 11 month mark in order to get the days we need.
Thanks for any advice you can offer!
