This article features the average sales price of contracts categorized by resort and month sold for March 2018 through March 2019. Our goal is for this 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 prices 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 contract, subsidized dues contracts, etc.). For example, contracts that are smaller and have higher point availability tend to sell for more than the average price per point and vice versa.

Selling Price Stability Continues

In a short amount of time 2019 has seen many changes such as a point charts reallocation, high dues increase, direct price increases, a resale restriction on the Classic 14 DVC Resorts, a restriction on future DVC resorts and a reversal of the point charts reallocation.  However, high variations in resale selling prices have not happened. In fact, quite the opposite, resale prices have continued to be very steady to start 2019.

The only significant price change from February to March was with Aulani, in which the average selling price dropped from $106/pt. to $95/pt. The proportion of Aulani sales to other resorts did increase over this same time. This price drop and increase in sales volume with Aulani may be signaling a more competitive price point when compared to other DVC Resorts, or this may just be a one month fluctuation.  Aulani has traditionally been a slower resort to sell. This is somewhat attributed to many sellers for Aulani owing more than what the market will bear for a selling price.  Now, since Aulani has been for sale direct through Disney since 2010, we are beginning to see more Aulani contracts with smaller loan payoffs and thus, more flexibility in their selling prices.

    People should buy Aulani. Flights to Oahu have dropped about half.
