In the month of August, Disney exercised their right of first refusal (ROFR) on 25 of 300 Disney Vacation Club (DVC) contracts sold through the DVC Resale Market, representing 8.3% of the contracts sold. The waiver rate for August was 91.7%. This past month ended a 4 month streak of buy backs at 30 or more for the month.

At 8.3%, the August buy back rate represented a sizable 36% drop from July’s rate of 13.1% .  The year-to-date (YTD) buy back rate for 2018 is now 9.6%, which remains more than double 2016’s rate of 4.4% and ahead of 2017’s rate of 6.9%.  The YTD waiver rate is 90.4%.

The chart below shows the relationship between the average selling price per point and the buy back rate from August 2017 through August 2018.  Despite the average sales price per point remaining consistent around $114/pt. from July to August for all DVC resorts, the buy back rate took a sharp drop.  August’s buy back rate of 8.3% is the lowest since March, when the buy back rate was 7.5%.

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 may take up to 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.
