At the very least buying before the price hike might pay for the closing costs. I may be putting in a call to our guide too. In my case I would like BCV points and I think they are going up $20 per point.

I like to use this link to keep track of listing prices:

https://www.disneydvcresale.com/

I know listing doesn't equal actual and final price depends on a lot of other things, but it does seem to track relative values over time. Maybe it will help you decide.

Agreed!

There is a small part of me that is curious what your use year is for those small OKW contracts. I wouldn't mind a few more points there myself

Default I would sell the OKW and purchase BLT

We decided to sell our 130 SSR points and one of our 50 VWL (now BRV) contracts in order to purchase more VGF points. It was our best DVC decision in a long time.

While I am sure it is irritating to deal with 7 month reservations, the fact that both OKW contracts are stripped is indicating that you've been successful in using them elsewhere. IDK, I wonder if you should hold onto them. Obviously at 7 months you are not going to be able to get the SV BL but does the math compute to sell 50 pts to purchase 35 pts (my estimation) so you'd have access to BL SV (with LV being nicer than SV)?

I admit we did purchase a small pt contract at BC to be able to book in the fall however we routinely use our AK and BL pts to stay in BC and PV at other times of the year (haven't stayed at BL since 2013).

I think they are September UY. And I feel her pain. September isn't easy to find at any of the resorts.

I missed that in a subsequent post. Wouldn't want it anyway as I like to keep them all under one membership. Oh well...

LOL, sadly no it would be June. I really don't need more points but something about a 25 or so point contract would be nice. I did see a 30 point one last year, and should've gotten it but I hesitated too long.

This is something I've wondered about for a while. What is the procedure for selling a contract without involving a broker? Given a community such as this (or other boards), it seems like there'd be a decent market for buying and selling without having to fork over a commission. How hard is it to For Sale By Owner DVC?
