Default Question about making an offer

So I知 ready to start looking and making an offer on a contract when I find one I like resale.
I have read many good things about many resale companies on here
Is it ok to call or email multiple companies and tell them what I知 looking for and see who finds something for me or is it more acceptable to just work with one company?
I want to do this right and looking for insight as to the proper procedure
Thanks

Is it acceptable to shop for a car, and even do a test drive, at more than one dealer? Of course it is. As long as you are sincere and show basic respect for the seller and resale company, I don't see a problem.

And you can offer lower than asking and/or ask for dues covered or closing costs. But, like buying a house, in that you don't want to lowball too much where buyers just walk without counter. You can lowball but it may take several attempts over a period of time to find sellers willing to play ball. And DVD might ROFR the contract if it's too low.

And if you make 2 offers at same time and they both accept without counter then it's a matter of good conscience if you then say 'nah, never mind' to one of them. It's a thin line to walk. YKWIM. Where you want to get the best deal but not be a cad.

shop shop shop.....No issues with kicking a few tires and different dealerships. If you find a contract you like, then go at it hard. If you are patient and want to find a deal, then by all means offer lots of low ball offers. It is a sellers market, if you go too low, Disney has been active with ROFR. A bargain shopper will take a month or two longer to find that right deal. Expect a 3 month window from buying to owning your DVC contract, longer on a deal......and that is if DVC doesn't take it back.

Thanks I found one that worked perfectly for me and I ended up settling on a few dollars per point more than I wanted but it痴 a small contract but it had extra points available for next year, the seller came down quite a bit and there are extra points in it so I can keep banking forward and get more vacation days every year than I was originally buying for. It turns out I was haggling over about $120 so I figured I would rather be happy with what I have than losing it

And that's what counts, as long as you're happy with it. Life is too short to spend your precious time on things that don't really matter.
