I am not getting the vitriol towards RR resale in this thread. The ones in this thread who have made that purchase, myself included, seem pretty darn happy about our decision. Haven't those who criticize ever bought a used car that's a year or two old? You don't get that shiny new car experience and not everything is "perfect," but you get a great deal and aren't the one paying for the reduction in value when a new car is driven off the lot. I paid $134 in March (net $117 after deduction for the rental amount I received for the banked points for which I paid no dues.) Per the June report, the average resale is $151. That's a 29% increase in value in 3 months. Even if I chose to sell today and got the average June resale price, I'd get a return of 17% after payment of brokerage fee in just a few months. (I'm not doing so as next year's points have already been rented for $21 pp and that will be the way it is until the RR newness wears off.) That's a lot better ROI than my bank gives me. Granted, those of us who have purchased probably have other points we can work with but there's no reason to call the resale restrictions "cancer" or the resale purchasers (or even direct purchasers) "ignorant." There are valid reasons for purchasing both direct and resale (I don't recommend RR resale for the first time DVC purchaser unless the purchaser is planning on other direct or resale purchases.) In my case, I'm 61 and Riviera is where I will be staying with the grandkids I hope to have. In the meantime, I can rent out the points to reduce my asset cost.
