Hi ~

After debating for the last 2 years, we've decided to become DVC owners! Currently looking for a resale at OKW (most likely).

Looking forward to learning from the boards!

Kp1105,

Welcome, we visited WDW in October of 2013 and went on the DVC tour at that time. I really wanted to join but the price they were asking was out of my reach. After quite a bit of research and some careful financial restructuring I was finally in a position to afford a DVC package, if I was careful and used the resale market.

Obviously I haven't completed the purchase process yet, but reading as much of the advice as I was able on the forums was a huge help. It seems that there are so many rules and mistakes that can be made, the advice from those who have completed the process is vital.

Good luck in your search! Make sure you check how many points are available on the contract you choose and research your home resort.

The part of this process I am struggling with the most is patience. I wasn't sure what to expect when I started so here is what I have experienced so far. I began seriously looking for a contract to buy in early June. I tried to place offers on four contracts but either I was too late or the agent could not reach the seller. I finally made a successful offer on July 12th. I was lucky that both sides of the sale completed their contracts quickly and were submitted for Disney ROFR on July 20th. Today is August16th and I am still waiting to hear. I have been told the standard to hear back is 30 days but from what I am reading in the forums that is not guaranteed. I still have to complete closing and then Disney transferring the membership to me (I was told to expect two weeks on the membership transfer).

Fingers crossed I will receive good news from Disney in the next three days!
