DVC Right of First Refusal (ROFR): December ’16 Report4 Comments
In the month of December, Disney exercised their right of first refusal (ROFR) on 8 contracts sold through the DVC Resale Market, representing roughly 5.6% of the contracts sold in that same month. This month’s 5.6% percentage was above the 2016 percentage of 4.4%.
Right of First Refusal is the option Disney Vacation Club has to purchase any resale package after a sales price has been agreed upon and a 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.
The month of December was dominated with buy backs of Bay Lake Tower. 6 of the 8 contracts bought back were Bay Lake Tower. For 2016, this brings the buy back volume for Bay Lake Tower head and shoulders above the other resorts as seen in the graph below.
As previously mentioned, the heavy buy back rate for Bay Lake Tower continued with one contract being bought back as high as $114/pt. as seen in the table below.
