Default Beach Club Resale Strategy?

Hello,

We like staying at BCV for the location and amenities and it’s difficult for us to stay there without Home resort priority. (We currently have PVB). I know from an economical standpoint, the high cost per point and length remaining in that contract make it one of the less economical buys.

Has there been any conversation about extending the points once they expire? Would buying resale become more or less economical after that kind of announcement? I don’t fully understand how the extension process works.

Any other interesting factors about buying BCV at the moment?

Thank you!
Nick

BC is hot rot now!
Star Wars is opening.
Location location location!
There is still life in the contract, but you must decide that value.
That area may change with the opening of the Skyway?
In my opinion I doubt there will be a extension. The property is to valuable to Disney right now.
Best of luck with your decision

There is still 23 years left for BCV in itís current state. That is a lot of vacations. If this is where you feel you need to be it will be worth every penny. I still want more myself.

Poly at $150pt for a studio in low season will cost $159.22 per night.
Beach club at $138pt for a studio in low season will cost $194.10 per night.
Poly you have 47 years left Beach Club 23. Are the Poly points grandfathered for bennies? Just another thought.
Chart shows direct pricing on top, resale on bottom.

Anyone remember when you could pick up BCV points for low $80's... and some idiots thought "nah, it's go down into the 70's" and didn't buy them.

Star Wars will increase the value of the property. The gondola will decrease the value or, at the very least, the desirability. Both are factors.

Cheers.

Indeed. Our BCV is at like $85. BWV at around $80. The $15K or so we could make selling these, though, is irrelevant, so best to keep them

Cheers.

I got 150 BCV for $88 all-in in Feb 2010. It was pretty much fully loaded with 140 banked points from 2009. If I value those the cost was about $82.

Our BWV was a STEAL at $60 in 2011.

This is still my wife's favorite resort. I like it. Just not views from room.
