DVC Resale Average Sales Prices for June 2020
This article features the average sales price of contracts categorized by resort and month sold from June 2019 through June 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.
Disney Vacation Club Value Shows Tremendous Resiliency
If 2020 has taught us anything about DVC, it’s that it is extremely resilient. Despite not having any US-based theme park open for nearly 4 months due to a worldwide pandemic, the resale value of DVC on average didn’t drop more than 5%. While we are not out of the woods yet, the 1st half of the year certainly packed a massive punch of bad news, and despite all of it, the resale world of DVC is thriving.
Overall, the resale market experienced slight appreciation in June with more resorts experiencing an increase in average selling price than a decrease. This is not entirely surprising given the last 2 months have been the most successful May/June in DVCRM’s history with more than 600 contracts sold.
When the pandemic first reached the United States (US), I had faith Disney and DVC would pull through, as I’ve seen it survive and come out stronger from other major world crises, most recently the 2008 financial crisis. However, given the magnitude of the COVID-19 pandemic, I have been surprised at just how well DVC has thrived in the resale market. Perhaps, it has been optimism that things will get better in the not-too-distant future–maybe direct sales being temporarily suspended has contributed to a surge in resale business. Or perhaps, it is the effect from life events shaping us to more realize the importance of quality time with family and friends, and of course, Disney provides one of the safest and happiest places on Earth for such opportunities.
