I suppose this belongs on the closing thread, but this has got to be the worst communication between broker, title company, and lawyer on any closing I’ve done, and as a result of none of them communicating with each other until I’ve asked questions, they didn’t submit our closing to Disney in time to beat the cutoff, despite the fact that we signed documents and final payment was made late June and lawyer closing call was on 7/2 (after numerous delays of title company sending and then fixing the documents sent to the lawyer). So now I have to wait till 7/21. Sigh….

Here is an update I received from Mason Title today. For reference: this passed ROFR on 6/30, I received closing docs on 7/7. Got check to them on 7/12.

"The closing date is scheduled for 7/26 due to Disney implementing new technology systems 7/8 -7/21; therefore closings and transfers will be delayed."

Domique---$178-$27660-150-VGF-Feb-0/20, 150/21, 150/22, 150/23-Seller pays MF 21- sent 7/12

2021, 150 points in holding, that is why the seller is paying the Maintenance Frees for 2021.

We will try to use them or sell the points once this closes, but unfortunately, I don't think that will happen. I was looking at availability after we close, and availability is slim (especially having to use them in 30 days of booking); plus, if we don't close until September, that only leaves 4 months to use them, but you never know... never say never!
If anyone has any ideas, I'm open to suggestions on how to use them.

We were done buying when we bought our last contract, but then we stayed at the VGF, and we really enjoyed it. I was going to wait until VGF2 opened up and planned to buy directly but then why wait? Lol! Maybe we will buy a small direct if the price isn't astronomical.

I actually put a bid on this contract too, but I only went up to $168. I’m happy it went to a fellow dis member 😊. We want a few more points at VGF too and are torn between resale or waiting for direct pricing to come out. Holding can be booked for stays 60 day in advance. My best advice is once the points land in your account stalk the DVC booking tool to find any availability (a weekend getaway would probably be best) book it and either rent it out as a last minute stay or use it yourself.

I thought it was 30 days, 60 is better for sure! Thanks for letting me know, I appreciate it!
I started at 170, he wouldn't come down and I decided what the heck and went for it 😃

Put them up for rent at $12 to $10 dollars on the rental board and I'm sure someone will scoop them up for a SSR random day visit.

One more update that probably belongs in the closing thread, but oh well. My Boulder Ridge contract closed on 6/30 and was sent to Disney same day. The Member account for my new December Use Year was created /added to my account today. Points not posted yet though. So accounts are still being created as of July 13th...

Soooo expensive, but I couldn't resist! I really, really hope this works out!

It's also a different UY than the Aulani contract that just passed ROFR, but I figure these points will only be used at VGC, so it's okay, right?

I have a different UY just for my VGC, not a big deal. Can’t be picky with VGC. Now I’m thinking when DLT comes out, I may sync it with VGC so that I’ll have separate UYs for DL and WDW. Congratulations! I’m sure you’ll pass ROFR.

That's the second of our (my dad is the actual purchaser - I am doing all the legwork) two contracts through ROFR and the first is already through estoppel too!
