2009 Charges:

Maintenance Fee(s) $ 827.60

Tax - If Applicable $ 0.00 (Included in maint fee at SDO)

SVN Membership Fee - If Applicable $ 109.00

Other* $ 0.00

ARDA ROC PAC Contrib.** $ 0.00 (This fee is VOLUNTARY and the FEDS are investigating ARDA/SVO to see if it is/has been illegally collected from us owners.)

Current Year Charges $ 936.60 (for SVN members)

NOTE: Non-SVN SDO's (i.e. those who bought SDO resale and didn't requal it) don't pay the $109.00 SVN fee, so the 2009 maint fee for them is: $827.60

FURTHER NOTE: This 2009 maint fee at SDO is only a 4.2% increase ($33.36) over 2008's maint fee. It could have been so much worse. Thanks SVO!

SDO 2009 Maint Fees are due on January 8, 2009.

WMH EOY MFs is $669.28. Last year was $649.36, so this is a 3% increase. Interesting that the EY unit saw a 5% decrease.

Gee, I don't even want to think about SBP maintenance fees. I have just finished paying my Foxrun fees today. UGH! I need to sell some of my weeks. I know it as well as I know it is going to snow today in Denver.

I have last year's MFs for WKV (1Bd Prem) as $674.41 (incl. Tax but not SVN and ARDA) for both of our units - why the difference?

I can see my earlier statement was confusing. The $788.41 figure for 2008 includes SVN and ARDA fees. However, when computing the increase in mf, I did not include those fees, as I think that would distort the actual percent increase. I'll try to clarify that above.

I think this must be Palmetto phase since it's higher than what I got.

SVV (Bella) 2 bedroom

2009 Operating Assessment $655.38
2009 Replacement Reserve $134.77
2009 Real Estate Tax $105.48

Total MF 2009 $895.63

2008 Tax Credit -$21.26
2009 SVN Membership $109.00

2009 Invoice (No ARDA) $983.37

Compared to 2008 Invoice $940.29

Difference between 2008 & 2009 estimated taxes - 5cents
Difference between 2008 & 2009 operating costs/replacement reserve $64.29 or 8.9%. Wish our household income had increased by 8.9% this year.
I would even take an 8.9% decrease in our stock portfolio.

Maintenance Fees

WKORV was $ 1717.82 last year for a 2BLO, to put it in perspective that is $ 89,326.64 per year for the 1 2BLO. It seems I could hire someone full time to tend the room repaint and still have money left over for furniture.

It is my understanding that maintenance fees are calculated for the upcoming year and are prepaid. With Starwood laying off so many people,


An interesting article. Starwood is laying off numerous people at Villas, and stated that it was done at the owners request. They forgot to get input from me, I guess.

With the layoffs and maintenance fees precollected, shouldn't there be a refund?

Just a thought.

Scott

Here comes the resale parade. More STIFF increases at both WKORV and WPORV. This is really getting out of control. As owners, do we have any options to be heard with SVN stacking the board??
