DVC Resale Average Sales Prices for October 2021

BoardWalk Villas

This article features the average sales price of contracts categorized by resort and month sold from October 2020 through October 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.

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.

Strong Sales Continue Ahead of Peak Season

Fall marks what has historically been one of the low seasons for DVC resale purchases. However, due to aggressive Disney buybacks and plateauing prices, sales at DVCRM were up over 90% in October 2021 as compared to last year.

What was briefly viewed as a buyer’s market could be showing signs of a shift ahead of the upcoming peak season after the holidays.  The market has remained balanced thanks in large part to 70 contracts sold at DVCRM last month being taken in right-of-first-refusal (ROFR).  Overall average pricing also continued to remain flat, hovering near $150 per point.  If these trends continue, we could begin to see an increase in pricing as demand picks up near the end of this year and into early 2022.  Potential buyers should be mindful of this in the coming months.

Also, while it is too early to speculate that this is more than just an anomaly, BoardWalk’s average price has steadily decreased over the past four months by 12% from its high of $154 per point in June 2021.  As what has historically been one of the more popular DVC Resorts, this will be something to continue to monitor.
