DVC Resale Average Sales Prices for January 2021
This article features the average sales price of contracts categorized by resort and month sold from January 2020 through January 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.
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.
DVC Resale Prices Continue Steady Rise
Taking a simple average of the average DVC Resort selling prices in January 2021 results in a record high $131 per point. This represents a 4% increase from January 2020 and a bump from even the previous month, December of 2020. In December, this simple average was $128 per point. This month-over-month increase is due to two-thirds of the DVC Resorts average prices increasing. Despite increasing resale prices, the $131 per point average is still well below the $205 per point average for direct purchases.
Various factors are contributing to this increase in resale prices, but likely the most significant cause is rapidly increasing demand. In January alone, DVCRM sold 500 contracts. The only other month in DVCRM history to be close in sales was January 2019, when Disney provided a two-week window for people to purchase resale contracts prior to a restriction going into effect. It is not uncommon to observe sales increase in January as vacation planning season kicks off, however, this level of demand for this length of time is unprecedented. Going forward, many macro factors could influence this demand, but for the foreseeable future interest is unbelievably strong, and I wouldn’t be surprised if we are reporting even higher resale prices for February.
