A reader of DVC Report recently submitted a questions about owning DVC contracts with different use years. Both of my contracts were bough resale, and although the reader initially bough her DVC contract direct, the issue is really the same. When buying a second DVC contract, is it important to have the same use year? There are different schools of thought on this, but I can certainly share my experience.
When I decided I was interested in buying a second DVC contract, I started looking though the available contacts on the resale market. I was looking for something at Boardwalk Villas and in the 100 to 200 point range. After keeping my eye out for some time, I believed I had found the perfect contract. The right amount of points and in my price range. Because Boardwalk Villas is an older DVC resort and a popular one, there really weren’t that many contracts coming available. I spoke with the agent at the resale company and did ask about the use year different in the contract we wanted to buy and the contract we currently owned. He told me not to worry, that you can combine points to make a reservation, etc. So we went ahead and signed the contract.
