DVC Right of First Refusal Report (ROFR): January 2023

DVC Exercises Right of First Refusal (ROFR)

Year-to-date (YTD), Disney has exercised their right of first refusal (ROFR) on 4 Disney Vacation Club (DVC) contracts, and DVC Resale Market (DVCRM) has sold 379, resulting in a 1.1% buyback rate (Contracts Bought Back in 2023/Contracts Sold in 2023). The 2023 waiver rate is 98.9%.

Key ROFR Updates

Cue up Celine Dion’s “All By Myself” as you read through this month’s ROFR report because Copper Creek is all there is to talk about.  Even the look of some of the charts and graphs below are quite comical with this data.

For the second month in a row, we saw only four contracts taken by Disney, all at Copper Creek.  Prices on these contracts ranged from $141-$144, which is important to remember if you are in the market for a Copper Creek contract and looking to submit an offer.

Disney continues to have its mind focused elsewhere, which is providing buyers a great opportunity to avoid this stressful part of the purchase process at this time!

What is Right of First Refusal (ROFR)?

For those new to the concept, Right of First Refusal is the option Disney Vacation Club has to purchase any resale contract after a sales price has been agreed upon, and the contract has been executed. Each contract must be forwarded to DVC for review.

DVC typically takes no more than 30 days to review the contract. At their discretion, Disney may step in and purchase the property themselves at the terms agreed upon by the seller and original buyer. DVC then becomes the buyer, and the purchase is complete. Once DVC is the buyer there is not an opportunity to come back with a better offer in hopes of still purchasing the contract.
