    Congrats to YYJMSP who is the first to report 2018 maintenance fees!

    In addition to posting in this thread, please post your maintenance fees in our data base, provided by Nico. (Thank you Nico!)

    CLICK HERE: MF Data Base


    ---------------------------------------------------

    I win!

    WKORV

    2BR Deluxe Lock-off Annual
    - 2018 Master Association Assessment - $362.53
    - 2018 Apartment Owners Assessment - $625.99
    - 2018 Vacation Ownership Assessment - $2202.41
    - 2018 VSN Membership Fee - $151.04

    Total $3341.97, due Jan 2nd 2018

    Fluffy explanations (average $/unit week):
    - Overall +$52.27 = 2.2% increase
    - Taxes +$31.27 = 5% increase in property taxes, increase in income taxes
    - Replacement Reserve Funding +$25.00
    - HOA Project -$20.03
    - Parking Revenue -$14.93
    - Insurance Expense +$12.71
    - Engineering Wages +$9.55

    And I'm curious what happened to the Maui property tax settlement, will dig deeper and see if it shows buried somewhere.

    That was quick - how about first from WSJ?

    2018 WSJ-VGV MF Proposed
    Studio: $1458.19
    1Bd: $1944.34
    2Bd TH: $2430.07
    2Bd Prem: $2916.40
    3Bd Pool: $2916.60

    IMPORTANT
    Note at bottom states:
    This is only proposed and needs to be approved.
    That the MFs will NOT be as high as proposed due to H. Irma
    November 10 is the date for approval of the actual budget (MF).

    Therefore - Please DO NOT update MF database until actual budget is approved.
    It is interesting to note that the 2Bd TH MFs increased by ~$30. That is 5-6 years in row that MFs have stayed relatively flat.

    @hypnotiq
    Hey Nico - there are errors in MF database for some of the resorts recently entered (e.g WKORV) - the 2018 was listed as 2017. I added WKORV Dlx for 2018, but one of the 2017 needs to be deleted. I think when they were added - the YEAR pulldown wasn't updated to 2017.

    Will you please break up the club due? I do not know Flex Options club due is the same as Star Options club due. I assume it is the same but I think Hawaii properties may include some taxes. Thanks!

    See the back of the Fall 2017 Association Newsletter, under Resort Update, 4th paragraph:

    Maui Property Tax Update
    TL;DR version - Ongoing litigation, nothing to report. HOA BoD continues to actively pursue lawsuit.

    *sigh*

    WKORV 1 bedroom EOY:

    2017 MASTER ASSOCIATION ASSESSMENT $117.07
    2017 APARTMENT OWNERS ASSESSMENT $185.32
    2017 VACATION OWNERSHIP ASSESSMENT $673.26
    2017 VSN MEMBERSHIP FEE $145.60
    2017 ONE OHANA PAC CONTRIBUTION $10.00


    $1131.25

    2018 MASTER ASSOCIATION ASSESSMENT $110.99
    2018 APARTMENT OWNERS ASSESSMENT $191.65
    2018 VACATION OWNERSHIP ASSESSMENT $694.28
    2018 VSN MEMBERSHIP FEE $151.04
    2018 ONE OHANA FOUNDATION $10.00

    $1157.96

    If I did it right in the database, the first three items add together to be the Maintenance fee, with the fourth being the membership fee. The PAC contribution is ignored.
