DVC Right of First Refusal Report (ROFR): March ’19 Report

Animals at Disney's Animal Kingdom

Year-to-date (YTD), Disney has exercised their right of first refusal (ROFR) on 164 Disney Vacation Club (DVC) contracts, and DVC Resale Market has sold 1,144, resulting in a 14.3% buy back rate. (Contracts Bought Back year-to-date / Contracts Sold year-to-date). The year-to-date waiver rate is 85.7%.

In 2019, the chances a DVC contract is bought back or not, continues to be highly resort dependent. YTD, 6 DVC Resorts have zero buy backs: Aulani, Grand Californian, Polynesian, Vero Beach, Copper Creek and Boulder Ridge. Meanwhile, 4 DVC Resorts have buy back rates of 20% or higher: Animal Kingdom, Bay Lake Tower, Beach Club and Hilton Head.

The chart below shows the relationship between the average selling price per point and the buy back rate from March 2018 through March 2019. Historically, we have observed resale price per point and buy back rate have an inverse relationship.

What is Right of First Refusal (ROFR)?

For those new to the concept of Right of First Refusal, it 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.
