DVC Resale Average Sales Prices for September 2021

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

Prices Remain Steady as Buybacks Jump

Steadily from June 2020 to June 2021, resale prices increased after a small period of price declines at the onset of the pandemic.  In June 2021, prices reached all-time highs, with the average DVC resort selling for roughly $150 per point on the resale market. This average has remained fairly consistent for the past four months.

With an increase in supply over the past few months, and a leaning towards a buyer’s market there was a thought we may see a softening on prices, however, that has yet to happen.  One of the key contributors counter balancing a potential buyer’s market is a spike in Disney buybacks.  Disney purchased back 80 of the contracts sold at DVCRM last month, and contrast that with only 60 buybacks total from the preceding three months.  This increase in buybacks is keeping supply tighter and thus resulting in a more balanced market.   Additionally, peak buying season is now less than three months away, so if we do see a true buyer’s market, it will likely be very short lived.
