Renting to US residents, how?

I have seen mentioned on here that the best way to rent DVC points to those in the US is via Facebook, can anyone give me further advice, where on Facebook do I advertise and how, I do not use face book so itís all foreign to me 😩

Hi, I used a group called ďDVC Disney Vacation Club Points RentalĒ and just posted my points on there. I made reservations for quite a few families and they paid via PayPal. Iím not sure exactly how the PayPal fees were paid. At the time we had 400 points that were due to expire on 31st August as BA had just cancelled our flights and we obviously couldnít travel. We literally managed to rent out 398 in the space of a couple of weeks. There is an element of trust there but most people have rented before. The ones I did were for short trips rather than someone renting all my points so they were all genuine holiday makers. You find Florida residents will often take a weekend break to Disney so they like to pick up quick getaways. I sold generally between $12-$14 per point which is pretty cheap but I was desperate to get rid of them so you could probably ask more. We now have a tidy sum sat in the bank to rent out more points for Aug 21 as we are restricted on how many we can borrow from our Sep 21 use year.

If youíre renting out via the FB group, would you feel more comfortable posting and then waiting for interest, or would you respond to a post seeking points?

Or am I over thinking this?!

Just be careful when not using a company to help you rent out your points. I know there is a lot of success renting out points on your own but there are some bad stories too. Just protect yourself at all times.

Iím looking to rent too but going to use a company to assist - I would worry too much about what ifs buts etc so rather try and relieve some stress.

I tried to use David's but had no nips off him so went elsewhere, I still haven't told him my points are gone and he has not contacted me with a potential renter. i think he must have many people wanting to rent with him and not enough lookers

I used the other big Disney board- if you don't post on there much or at all you have to pay I think $28 to list.

Mine took about 3 weeks or so to go, to 4 different people, all from USA. I used a simple agreement I found via google and used paypal friends and family.

If you use friends and family the renter cannot try to reclaim the funds - its like a bank transfer-

Paypay will load the exchange with 3% however- but if you buy Disney gift cards in USD theres no conversion. I did that and put the cash to my dues.
