DVC Resale Average Sales Prices for February 20200 Comments
This article features the average sales price of contracts categorized by resort and month sold for February 2019 through February 2020 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.
Keep in mind that the price 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 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.
Time to Buy Grand Floridian, Polynesian and Boardwalk?
Besides prime locations at Walt Disney World (WDW) the Grand Floridian, Polynesian and Boardwalk currently have a few other things in common. All 3 resorts are selling at nearly 12-month lows and have a healthy amount of inventory to choose from in the resale market.
Last Summer, Grand Floridian’s average resale selling price topped even Grand Californian’s at $189/pt. In February of 2020, the average resale price dipped to $165/pt., and currently, at time of this publication, there is plenty of inventory to choose from with DVC Resale Market having 70+ Grand Floridian listings. With direct walking access to Magic Kingdom coming soon, a great room mix that is highly upgraded and a long deed going to 2064, Grand Floridian could be a great resort to purchase right now.
For the last few months, the Polynesian continues to have an average selling price in the 140s per point. In the last few weeks, the sales pace of Polynesian has increased significantly, likely in reaction to its average price dropping south of $150/pt. The big drawback to Polynesian is the lack of room mix. For DVC, Polynesian just has studios with the other option being bungalows, which are a significant amount of points. However, for those comfortable with the Polynesian room mix, they can get a tremendous deal by purchasing a monorail DVC resort with a deed that doesn’t expire until 2066.
In February, the average resale price of Boardwalk hit a 12-month low of $121/pt. This is 40% less than the Disney direct price and even $25/pt. lower than the February average resale price of Beach Club, which is the best comparable resort. Additionally, similar to Polynesian, at the time of this publication, the Boardwalk has nearly 30 resale listings at DVC Resale Market. While the Boardwalk does have a shorter deed ending in 2042, there are still many positives, such as a great room mix, outstanding location between 2 major theme parks and one of the most unique resort atmospheres ever created.
