Default Do owners who rent have regular customers?

Hi - I am new to renting points and am wondering how many experienced owners have regular customers. I go to WDW pretty much every year and it would be great to make some connections here and become a regular!

I do not regularly rent out my points -- but I have heard from several owners that do rent out regularly to the same people every year.

I don't rent my points, but my friend who travels with us is a regular renter of a BLT owner she 'met' on a FB page.

Yes, I have had several repeat renters and when I was renting points for my own use I dealt with the same owner several times.

I have had regular renters for many years, who call/email us the same time every year they want to go to WDW.

I have repeat guest travelers I work with as well, and most just reach out to me when they are starting to make their travel plans. If I know I'm going to run low on points from personal or other guest use, I typically reach out to previous guests to see if they are planning to travel at their usual time, or if I should go ahead with making another guest's plans. Some of my guests travel annually, some go a few years in between, and others have rented a few times in a single year and then go on to become a DVC member themselves

I have enjoyed getting to know people through the discussion forums as well as through travel planning on this site. It has been and continues to be a fun outlet for me.

I rent out points once or twice a year, depending on how many of our 1000 points our family will use, or won't use. For example, this year I currently have 800 points in reservations for our family, and have rented out the rest, but sometime during the spring or summer, my October reservations will be modified, as I settle firmly on dates, and this will free up perhaps another 150 or 200 points which I probably will rent.

I have rented to dozens of people over the years and out of them, I have half a dozen people that I have rented to who frequently ask me if I can help them with more points and other reservations for themselves and their family or friends.

I always try to do what I can to take care of them, since I already have a relationship with them and I think of most of them as 'friends' by now. But my biggest problem is that I generally don't have more points available for when they need them. However, even when I can't help them, I still check for them to see if reservations are available, or I answer their questions or give advice.

I am an owner who rents points. Some of my clients are repeat, but many buy into DVC after they have rented from me...Good for the Mouse!!

I rent my extra points out and I have had a few repeats over the years. It all depends on where they want to stay and is it my home resort (7 -11 month window) and if I have any points left that year. Many renters want to try out different resorts when going back, which is what we personally do also. I encourage all my renters that booking early is the best way to ensure they can stay where they want to stay.
