DVC Resale Average Sales Prices for January 2024

This article features the average sales price of contracts categorized by resort and month sold from January 2023 through January 2024 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.

Inventory Surge and Price Dynamics

As we turn over the calendar to a fresh year, January has reliably shown itself to be the month when DVC sellers emerge in significant numbers—prompted by the looming prospect of Annual Dues and the realization that a pilgrimage to the most magical place on Earth may not be on the horizon. The start of 2024 has faithfully followed this pattern, with an influx of sellers pushing DVC Resale Market inventory north of 600 active contracts at the time of writing.

This surge spells good fortune for prospective buyers who find themselves spoilt for choice, providing ample opportunity to find a contract that fits their needs and budget. More notably, this abundance of listings has tipped the scales, confirming our current status as a buyer’s market, and continually applying downward pressure on sales prices.

While the vast range of options is undoubtedly a positive, it’s crucial to note that certain contract characteristics can influence average prices quite dramatically. This month’s analysis reveals just such an example with Riviera Resort, which experienced an upswing of $9 per point, lifting the average resale price to $126. At first glance, one might be tempted to think this signals an upsurge in Riviera’s popularity, but the reality is less about affection for the resort and more about the nature of the contracts exchanged. Over 80% of the Riviera contracts sold this month were either small in point size or came heavily loaded with points, both traits that typically command higher per-point prices.

The same principle of contract variability affecting pricing applies to the Grand Californian, which often sees similar fluctuations from month to month.

And for those of you eagerly watching the market trends, here’s an intriguing tidbit: January saw the sale of the inaugural Disneyland Hotel DVC resale contract—at an eye-catching $160 per point. While it’s too early to weave this figure into our standard reports, as we await more consistent data, it certainly ignites curiosity regarding the trajectory of Disneyland Hotel on the resale scene. I’ll not bore you with my thoughts, but let me know in the comments—what do you foresee for the future of Disneyland Hotel resales following this initial splash in the market?
