They can even be counted:

As far as I understood OPs question is for regular owners renting more then they use on regular basis. RTB is full of people who has 0 posts here and show up once in a blue moon to rent out because they can not go. I donít think OP is looking for these type of owners.

As an owner who uses all my points and only my points, I am surprised, nay shocked, that the numbers are so high.

But still not tempted in either direction.

This was the OP's question:

Quote:
Is there data on how many DVC members rent more points than they use personally?
Based on MO usage alone, multi-hundreds rent their points every year. How many of them rent more than they use, who knows. Not everyone posts here regularly. Indeed, there are owners with multiple listings per year on the linked list whom I've never seen post on these forums. But they are regular renters.

Then, there is also the DIS, TUG, and brokers. I would venture to say thousands of owners have rented points.

How many on a regular basis or more than than they personally use is absolutely unknowable based on available data.

Yes less than 1%. Probably less than 0.1%.

Well you're on a board where that 1% hangs out and the 99% doesn't. So of the 1% that mostly hang out here, it will naturally seem like of those who hang out here, renting is common.

A poll here would not answer the question because your sample is mostly renters it's obviously going to skew really high.

Sure a good chunk know about it but most don't do it. I know people in real life who have heard about renting from channels that are not me... but simply put in most cases renting is not a good idea... you can get most rooms for less with complete flexibility and no risk by staying in the hotels. Renting is kind of a circle of those who get into doing it. But it is far from mainstream.

I agree it's in the "hundreds". But there are what - 70 million dvc points out there? If the average ownership is 150 pts then that's some half a million owners. Ballpark. A few hundred out of half a million is indeed less than 1% heck it's less than 0.1%. Despite feeling like renting is all the rage when hanging out here among the renters, it is not common in the big picture.

As studies show!

I can just imagine someone taking a random sample of statistics published in the media, calling them and asking "Was that for real or did you just make it up?".

You got me!

On a side note, whenever I see your screen name I feel like mine or yours is misspelt

Specifically stayed away from asking what portion of points owned are rented. Wanted to know how many owners rent more points than they use..

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.

All of this is sort of an obfuscation of DVCís original intent.
