South Beach HGVC - 1 BD PLAT (4800) - $1073.90 (up ~4%)

2013 Operating Fee $709.17 (up 3%)
2013 Reserve Fee $153.41 (up 4%)
Real Estate Taxes $86.32 (up 7%)
2013 Club Dues $125.00 (up 5%)

-------

- Operating fee increase has grown 50% year-on-year (was 2% last year)
- Reserve fee increase is flat on last year (4.2%)
- Taxes increase is slowing (was at 14% last year)
- Club dues are up $6 for everybody in HGVC

Similar to last year I voted to fully fund the reserve however I don't think the resolution passed as this is a small increase in reserve funding.

International Club Dues? That must be a new one...

I'm still looking for a discount to not get a hard copy of the glossy member guide

There are two separate budgets at SeaWorld. One for Orlando Vacation Suites I (for phases 1 and 2) and the other for Orlando Vacation Suite II (for phases 3 & 4). I looked at your previous posts and discovered that this is the 3rd time you asked this question. So I decided to look at the SeaWorld Budget letters for 2012. I've confirmed that your 2012 MF matched OVS I.

NOTE: You can also tell which one you're under based on the name listed under the Association column when you go to the "PAY FEES & TAXES" webpage.

The difference in tax for my platinum 2BR OVS II compared to a gold 2 BR OVS II unit is because unlike the MF, which is independent of the season, the tax is different for gold/platinum season ?

Yes, based on previous discussions we've confirmed that taxes at SeaWorld differs by season for each unit size.

MF for "OVS I" is the same regardless of unit size however their Real Estate taxes differs by season for each unit size.
MF for "OVS II" is based on unit size and their Real Estate taxes also differs by season for each unit size.

NOTE: This discussion always comes up for SeaWorld, I don't know if this rule is unique to SeaWorld or applies to the other timeshares in Florida.

I have a 7000 Point Platinum Package at South Beach bought resale two years ago:

2013 Operating Fee 01/01/13 $1,040.32
2013 Reserve Fee 01/01/13 $226.76
Real Estate Taxes 01/01/13 $111.20
2013 Club Dues 01/01/13 $125.00

Total Current Balance: $1,503.28

Last year was $1,456.10. A 3.0% increase. During my ownership increases have not been unreasonable. Still troubled by the Board buying themselves IPADS -- wonder if they will upgrade this year.

Yes alwysonvac you are correct. All the info on the web site said phase II but I called customer service & they said if the contract no. starts with 40 then it is phase I. They are going to change it to I.

Thanks for your info,

JM

Looks like it! We'll see how long it lasts though, I wouldn't be surprised if they raise it over the next few years to help cover the cost to any significant improvements they make (like the pool area).
