Default Points sold per resort

Hi, Iím a new DVC owner. I was curious about how many points are sold per resort. Does Disney determine how many total points it would take to fully occupy the resort the entire year, and they sell that number of points?

I bought 90 points at SSR which in the deed is a 0.1971% interest in unit 47B. By my calculations 100% if that unit would be 45,662 points Divided by 365, this works out to 125 points per day. It seems like it would not take 45,662 points to 100% occupy a unit, and is selling so many points per unit too high?

Thanks.

And I think they calculate how many points it takes to occupy the resort all year and they sell a certain % of that. Not 100%.

Note that a unit might be more than one room. some units are a single Grand Villa, some might be a 2BR + a 1BR, etc. The units don't really mean anything, and don't always equate to a single room.

They do add up all the points for each room type for every day of the year, and that's the total points for that resort. I always thought they sold 100% of those, but I could be wrong about that.

Note that some 2 bedroom rooms are lock-off, meaning it could be divided into a 1BR, and a studio (and rented separately). When adding up the points, they only count the 2BR lock-off, not the separate 1BR & studio.

DVC must keep at least 2% of the total points for each resort.

Usually "units" are comprised of more than 1 room. At SSR there are no dedicated studios or 1BR's so it's likely multiple 2BR's or 2BR lockoffs. Or it could be a GV unit. Those are the most likely to be declared as a single unit but I think even some of them have ended up grouped with other rooms. And yes, the allocate points to units and then sell them. They keep up to 2% that is meant to cover maintenance requirements although they usually have more points in their own inventory. The point totals for each unit equal the points available at the entire resort.

I knew they had to have 2% in their own inventory, but I assumed those had been sold at some point in time and the current 2% would be the result of ROFR. I suppose this depends on the age of the resort.
