DVC Right of First Refusal (ROFR): November ’16 Report

Disney's Boardwalk

In the month of November, Disney exercised their right of first refusal (ROFR) on 12 contracts sold through the DVC Resale Market, representing roughly 10.5% of the contracts sold in that same month.  The 10.5% percentage of buy backs is more than double the year-to-date percentage of 4.3%.  Additionally, November set a record for the most contracts bought back through ROFR in 2016 from the DVC Resale Market.

Nearly all the buy backs in November consisted of Bay Lake Tower and Boardwalk.  Those two resorts included 11 of the 12 buy backs in November.   This continues a 3 month trend of Bay Lake Tower and Boardwalk dominating the buy backs (24 of the last 28).  Not surprisingly, those two resorts have taken over the top 2 spots year-to-date on the number of contracts excercised in ROFR as seen below:

During this heavy buy back trend for Bay Lake Tower, contracts over $110/pt. were typically not touched until this past month.  In November, two Bay Lake Tower contracts were bought back at over $110/pt.  These two buy backs included a 160 point contract at $111/pt. and a 200 point contract at $113/pt.  However, the vast majority of Bay Lake Tower contracts sold over $110/pt. did get waived.  In the course of this recent trend, the top buy back price of Boardwalk also got raised in November from $97/pt. to $99.5/pt.

For the 3rd straight month, high point availability was not common with the majority of contracts bought back.  While many of the contracts did have some 2016 points available, the most common trait for contracts being bought back was the resort being either Bay Lake Tower or Boardwalk.
