Default Just Wondering

Is there data on how many DVC members rent more points than they use personally?

So if there’s no data, why do you say less than 1%? My sense from MO is that renting points is rampant.

Maybe a poll here on the percentage owners rent??? We have owned 9 years and rented 7 times so percentage is low for us....we use our points most time even in borrow mode!!!

96% of stats are made up on the spot.

As long as I have been on this board, I know the regulars who owns and rent out on regular basis, my count is still not in double digit.

There's a forum in the rental section with stickys listing owners who have posted for-rent going back several years. It's more than single digits. Several hundred in fact.

http://www.mouseowners.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=133263

That also doesn't count people who work specifically through a broker or those who may not post a rental ad but respond to want-ads instead (though that number is probably small).

Given the number of registrants on MO and DIS, I'm betting a ton of Disney regulars know about the rental market. The Unofficial Guide also specifically recommends MouseOwners and brokers as rental sites.

The r/t/b is *very* active.

There is way more activity than just from regular posters here. The number of registered MO's who have rented points this year numbers in the high hundreds if not nearly 1000.

They can even be counted:
