DVC Resale Average Sales Prices for August 2019
This article features the average sales price of contracts categorized by resort and month sold for August 2018 through August 2019. 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.
Grand Floridian Remains on Top
In July, Grand Floridian surpassed Grand Californian as the DVC Resort with the highest average resale price per point. In August, that lead was stretched by $2 more per point, selling at an average price per point in August of $189. Along with Grand Floridian, a few other premium location DVC Resorts experienced modest gains in average selling price over the Summer due to low inventory, but seem to be leveling off now.
It is unlikely we will see many increases in selling prices over the next few months as the Fall Season tends to be the slowest season for buying. For those potential buyers reading this, take note that the Fall Season can be your best opportunity to get the contract you want and at potentially a better price as there is less demand. Typically, a few days after Christmas, the vacation planning season starts, and a lot of buyers enter the market, creating more competition for listings. Depending on inventory levels, prices can rise, and it can become more challenging to get the contract you want.
