DVC Resale Average Prices for 2018: January – November
This article features the average sales price of contracts categorized by resort and month sold for January through November 2018. Our goal is for this to provide great directional information for anyone considering a Disney Vacation Club (DVC) resale purchase or just wanting to satisfy a general curiosity of prices and trends.
Keep in mind that prices of a resort can still easily vary based on the size of the contract in points, the current point availability of the contract (i.e., points current, banked and borrowed) as well as other various factors (i.e., extended Old Key West contract, subsidized dues contracts, etc.). For example, contracts that are smaller and have higher point availability tend to sell for more than the average price per point and vice versa.
DVC Resale Price Changes for Walt Disney World (WDW) Resorts
Outside of pricing dips for Beach Club and Boulder Ridge, the prices for Disney World DVC Resorts remained very consistent in November. Selling price variability for both Beach Club and Boulder Ridge are common as the amount of sales for both of these small resorts is limited, and as a result the month-to-month variability can be stronger. Despite the $12/point month-to-month drop, the average selling price for Beach Club in November still matches its average 2018 selling price. At an average selling price of $93/point, Boulder Ridge experienced its lowest monthly average selling price of 2018. It will be interesting to see the December data for Boulder Ridge to help determine if the decrease for Boulder Ridge is a trend or just variability due to low sample size.

DVC Resale Price Changes for Non-Resorts
Most of the non-WDW resorts have been fairly consistent on price for 2018 with the exception of Grand Californian, which has experienced a pricing roller coaster in 2018.
With Disney increasing the price of Grand Californian to $235/point in January, it was no surprise to quickly see its resale prices jump. Resale inventory for Grand Californian quickly became scarce and by June the average resale selling price of Grand Californian peaked at $218/point. Over the course of the Summer, more Grand Californian inventory came to the market, perhaps as a result of the soaring resale prices influencing some Grand Californian owners to sell. The increased inventory would eventually lead to a dip in pricing, but selling prices for Grand Californian appear to be leveling off over the past few months.
