In the sweltering summer heat of 2016 on a road trip down to Walt Disney World a friend asked me how they can sell their DVC. I advised her that several sites online can assist. She looked into it further and was shocked at the $2,300 commission estimate from a popular DVC resale broker and couldn’t believe there was no other way. That was when we decided that all DVC Sellers SHOULD have another option…
This moment marked the birth of the idea behind Main Street DVC Resale fueled by several burning questions. Why is the only option to sell through an expensive broker? Why are brokers so quick to point out “no up front fees”? Just how hard is it to sell your DVC on your own? This was something I had to get to the bottom of. My first task was identifying the steps involved in selling a DVC resale contract. To my shock, selling your DVC without a broker is surprisingly simple. All that is needed is a buyer, a contract both parties can sign, and for the documentation to be sent to a reputable Title company. The process itself does have some quirks – such as Disneys Right of First Refusal – but this is all handled, again, by the Title company. This is when I realized that the biggest hurdle to selling your DVC was getting it listed somewhere that thousands of potential buyers could see it. From here the mantra I kept reading on the Broker sites of “no up front fees” started to make sense. Of course they don’t want to charge an up front fee, they would rather charge a commission. After all, what is a small one time fee compared to 9% of your sale price? Obviously, they want the commission.
From that point on I made it my mission to bring a safe, secure, easy, and simple process for Sellers to use. It was designed through rigorous consultation with Licensed Real Estate Agents, attorneys, and DVC experts, some of which we have on staff waiting to assist you. We don’t try to hide it, we charge a a small ONE TIME fee and NO COMMISSION – ever. Please see below to get an idea of what to expect when listing with Main Street DVC Resale:
