    I dont want to get rid of my Disney timeshare but I would prefer to sell my points each year what site or sites can you do this on and what is a fair market value for the price per point.

    David's finds the client, actually check via a DVC site that booking is available, email several owners (like yourself with the right ownership & points available), you response via email ... they ask you to book it ... it you are the fastest one) and when you do & confirm you got it) and then add their guest's name .. you get paid about 1/2. After checkin, you get the other 1/2 of the rental fee.

    The key is responding ASAP to their inquiry. I don't know if they will text you a request. I own under 100 AKV points. And I bank and borrow the points.

    PS They have actually called me directly ... asking if I still have points to rent ... AKV appears to be a very a popular destination.

    Right now, it's a renter's market---there is significantly more demand for rental points than supply. Quote from owner's site below. He's also added AKV to the "premium resort" category for which he charges (and reimburses) an extra $1/pt for >7mo reservations.

    We are currently experiencing a shortage of points for all resorts: We have guests lined up for reservations arriving over the next 6 months. All points are valid for these reservations.

    You would be surprised .. those 25 points .. banked & borrowed along with current use year points .. have 75 points available for booking.

    Just call David's and ASK. They will verify your ownership ... and await their contacting you .. usually email for me. BUT ask all your questions with David's staff or any other rental agency.

    Good Luck ... hope it benefits you.

    I find my transfers on MouseOwners. I've been on both sides of transfers and they are very quick and easy.

    I had great success using the Disboards. I paid the $25 fee and EASILY rented all my points for more money than my usual rental fees on Redweek. I wish I had used the Dis earlier.

    The Demand is very great over there but the Supply is not, so it's a seller's (Disney Vacation Club point owner's) market! I use PayPal to get paid and the transactions are quick and very easy.

    From the rentee's side- I am using DVC rental store-they have been extremely responsive to me. I added DME to our august reservation last week and it was done within 48 hours (the owner must be a fast responder as well!). They have been awesome to work with from the other side(wanting to rent) which makes one think they are good to owners.

    I have only rented my points once, with David's, and they rented the same day that I put them up for rent.
    It was just a small amount.

    Yes, I agree. I own 6 contracts at 5 DVC resorts. I did this so I can book at 11 months and bank and borrow since I doubt I would visit every year anyway. I think this gives more flexibility than 1 or 2 bigger contracts.
