DVC also has some advantages on Direct purchase. As well, the resale prices at DVC are, in many cases, higher than what we paid for resale several years back (and close to the original Direct prices, I believe), and approaching some of the Direct prices at present. Taking into account various fees, a small Direct purchase can be on a par with, or cheaper than, a similarly-sized resale.You're also NOT paying the "fair market value." There are -some- benefits in the Marriott system to buying direct (though not worth their cost in my opinion), but I see none in the Hilton system.
But this is definitely an exception and, as noted, not the case with HGVC.
