DVC Resale Average Sales Prices for January 2022
This article features the average sales price of contracts categorized by resort and month sold from January 2021 through January 2022 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 Remain Steady on News of Direct Price Increases
The first of the year marks one of the most popular buying seasons for DVC resale. January 2022 did not disappoint, with DVC Resale Market selling over 450 contracts. However, an increase in listings and several other external factors have left prices relatively unchanged from our December 2021 report.
- It is difficult to compare sales for January 2021 and January 2022, as many factors drove historic DVC resale numbers last year. January 2021 saw the second round of government stimulus issued and excitement surrounding vaccines which was a significant factor for some to consider purchasing Disney Vacation Club.
- As we alluded to last month, direct price increases can have a long-term impact on resale prices. January saw planned price increases for Riviera and Aulani and unexpected increases for several sold-out resorts, including Disney’s Beach Club Villas, Disney’s BoardWalk Villas, Disney’s Hilton Head Island Resort, and Disney’s Vero Beach Resort.
- Keep an eye on The Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa in the coming months, as Disney gets ready to begin sales of the new DVC villas being added to this extremely popular property.
Market Remains Uncertain on Riviera Resale Value
With an entire year’s worth of resale data now available for Disney’s Riviera Resort, this marks the first month that we’ve fully included it in our average price reporting. A quick glance at the volatility of its graph below shows that the verdict is still out on what buyers are willing to pay for Riviera, likely driven by the resort’s resale restrictions.
Riviera average resale prices have ranged from a low of $130 per point in February 2021 to a current high of $158 per point.
