Question Copper Creek & Boulder Ridge

Was just gawking at resale prices today, and was struck by the fact that CCV prices were about $150/pt, while BRV prices were about $100/pt. Why would someone pay 50% more for CCV?! It sure isn't about location! Yes CCV rooms are newer and nicer, but even still....

BRV has 22 years left, CCV almost twice that.

BRV sells at $100 because it is a desirable resort with direct (albiet limited) access to MK without monorail resort prices.

When I bought my first resale contract in 2013 BRV was the "cheap" resort that still had desirable access to at least one park. Now I'm grandfathered in for perks due to the contract so I'll keep it for as long as I enjoy Disney, possibly longer if I decide to hold and rent. Both CCV and BRV remain very desirable (in my opinion).

If I was young I'd probably buy CCV, as it is BRV is more than enough for me.

Lower dues, much longer contract. As you said newer, updated styling.

Being attached to the main lobby seems to be a draw as well.

Is all this worth a 50% mark up? I dunno

I sold BRV for a fixed week at CCV. Best DVC purchase Ive ever made.

2042 is approaching fast. I would much prefer the longer contract as value per year is much higher.

Don't say that! It's fine if you're young, not so fine if you're .... older.
And yes I failed to take into full account the fact that BRV expires in 2042. Since I don't own there I didn't think about it's expiration date.

My family is loving WL as a whole. I've been looking at resales and admittedly the short time left on BRV is a negative, but I like the BRV room layouts more than CCV. We'll do another few trips before I do anything at all but it's not a clear winner for me even with the prices.

Thanks for the reminder... I'll be 85. But that's why we bought BRV instead of CCV, for the shorter expiration date.

Went to dinner at AP last night, and as soon as we walked into the lobby we relaxed. BRV is perfect for us. We actually like being away from the main building and donít care about that 2042 expiration date. We also like the quirky room layout better. We just love it there. I need more points...
