DVC Resale Average Sales Prices for December 2021
This article features the average sales price of contracts categorized by resort and month sold from December 2020 through December 2021 by DVC Resale Market (DVCRM).
Our goal for this article is 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.
How to Evaluate DVC Resale Prices
The price of a resort can 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 contracts, subsidized dues contracts, etc.).
For example, contracts that are smaller and have higher points availabilities tend to sell for more than the average price per point and vice versa.
Resale Prices Continue to Surge Heading Into 2022
When taking a simple average of the average DVC Resort selling prices from December ’20 to December ’21, the market showed an increase from $124/pt. to $150/pt. Given the lingering effects of the pandemic, this increase is extraordinary, and there are no signs that things will be slowing down any time soon. Here are a few things we are watching as we head into 2022:
- Even with the news of the new Disneyland Hotel DVC Tower on the way, the average resale price per point for The Villas at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa has increased by $63 per point in the past twelve months. We are likely still a year or more away from this new resort going on sale, so expect to see this price continue to climb.
- If you’re an owner at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas and not using your points, now might be the perfect time to cash in on your investment. Animal Kingdom has been the surprise performer of the past year, with its average resale price climbing from $115 per point in December 2020 to an all-time high of $144 per point in December 2021. On a 160 point contract (the most common for AKL), this translates to a gross increase in value of $4,640 this year alone!
- More direct price increases are right around the corner, with Riviera and Aulani expected to see their prices increase on February 3rd to $207 per point. January 2021 also saw a price increase for select sold-out DVC resorts, so don’t be surprised if we see that soon as well, which will eventually impact resale prices.
