Buying or Selling a DVC, Disney Vacation Club

Disney Vacation Club Resale FAQs sponsored by ResalesDVC

Resale vs. purchasing direct from DVC?
The Disney Vacation Club is a wonderful timeshare ownership whether you purchase directly from Disney or through the resale market. When you purchase a Disney Vacation Club resale, you are buying from a family just like yours. The main differences between the two avenues of purchasing include the expanded resort options available on the resale market and the per point price savings. All properties are available on resale, not just the newest ones. You can also choose to purchase as little as 25 points on resale instead of the 100 point minimum that Disney requires for first-time direct buyers. Disney will treat every owner equally as a valued guest. You will receive an online member account and your new owner’s package directly from DVC after your purchase has closed.

DVC’s Right of First Refusal?
The purpose of Disney’s Right of First Refusal (ROFR) is to control the value of their property so that it remains in step with current values. When there is an accepted offer and a signed contract with a good faith deposit in escrow, we immediately forward all contracts to the DVC Review Board. DVC will do an analysis of the terms of the contract and decide if they wish to “step in” as the buyer. The criteria DVC uses for ROFR is not public information but one important factor for exercising (stepping in as buyer) the ROFR would be if they feel the selling price, including who pays closing costs and maintenance and taxes, is below the target price they have established. If DVC exercises their ROFR and steps in as the buyer, your deposit will be refunded in full at your request.

Closing costs and “Free and Clear” title?
The closing costs on most DVC resales will range from an average of $400 - $650 + (depending on the dollar amount of purchase) These costs will include title search, title insurance, administrative fees and recording fees (deed and any other pertinent documents). The closing costs are paid to the title company at closing. A title search is conducted by the title company to be sure that the title is free and clear and an insurance policy is issued to insure same. Your resale broker has no financial interest in any title company.

Is there financing for a resale purchase?
Yes. The most popular form of financing on the resale market is a small home equity loan or signature loan with your local bank. Those options will give you the lowest interest rates. You may also contact the below lenders of funds for timeshares. They are independent companies so you will need to contact them for the most current rates and terms.

Light stream – an online lending division of SunTrust Bank that offers unsecured timeshare financing for consumers with good to excellent credit histories

Monera Financial – mortgage loans for DVC properties located in Florida

How long is the closing process and when can I schedule my first trip?
When an offer is accepted, we prepare the contracts and email them to you. At this time, you will need to sign and return the contracts to us and also send your deposit to the title company. Once signed contracts are received and a deposit is on record with the closing company, we then forward all contracts to Disney to start the ROFR process.

It takes Disney approx. 30 days to approve a sale. When Disney approves your contract, it then takes approx. 4 weeks for the title company to get the transaction to closing. At closing, the remainder due will need to be a certified bank check or bank wire transfer to the title company (international buyers). Once the sale has closed, it takes Disney approx. 14 days to set up your new membership. Its a very easy process for buyers and we keep you updated every step of the way!

Once the sale has closed and the new deed sent to Disney, it takes about 14 days for Disney to set up your new membership and mail your membership cards for you to have the ability to schedule your first vacation.

Closing I have to come to Florida?
You do not have to come to Florida. The majority of all DVC resales are accomplished via the internet from the comfort of your own home, regardless of which state or country you live in.

Will I get a New Member hand book?
Your New Member hand book will arrive directly from DVC approximately 3 weeks after they complete the transfer of ownership. You do not have to wait for this book to schedule your first vacation. As soon as Disney provides your new membership number, you can take full advantage of the entire plan.
