[QUOTE=PeterPansPixie;1044021]This is not true. Each resorts contracts expire at the same time, unless you did the extension at OKW. We purchased VWL 2 years ago off the resale market. Our contract expires in 2042, the same time it would have expired if we purchased directly from Disney and we paid about $40 less per point than we would have if we bought it direct. They really don’t offer any incentives for purchasing at a sold out resort, so the resale market is your best bet. There are AKV contracts out there right now for as low as $85 per point that our the exact same thing that Disney is selling.
Where you really have to be careful is with closing costs. They should not be more than $500 and that is estimating very high (ours didn’t even come close to that). You can often get the seller to pay for some if not all of them.
Some people think the resale market is not as convenient or is more of a pain, but it was actually super easy it justs takes a little longer. We put in our bid and it was accepted by the seller, Disney waived their rights, we were sent some papers to sign, and we sent them back with a check. Done. The whole process took a little over a month, but it really only took up about 20 minutes of our time total. All the work was basically done by other people.
I hope this helps. It really is a big financial decision, so make sure you take your time with your research and don’t rush into anything.[/QUOTE]
THAT’s the trick - getting Disney to waive it’s rights…we tried to buy more points on two different occasions and Disney refused to waive their rights both times…yes…I was a little ticked off.:dry: We ended up buying directly from Disney - it just saved a lot of disappointment. Of course, try it, if it looks like a good deal - but don’t expect it to be a “done deal”.
