I think the extra reserve fund for CWA started in 2017. I would be curious to know the reason for the addition.
Someone said something about property taxes in Florida changing, to explain why CWA mf went up. Not sure about the reserve fund. The taxes should not have affected the reserve fund. Look for the owners update thread. I think it was page 3 that someone provided an explanation about the MF increase if you are interested.

I own at Fairfield Bay and my MF's are much lower that this (I posted on the previous page $3.89, 1.66, .14 Total $5.69). I took my figures straight off my statement. Does anyone know why we would have such a big difference in MF? Is it because converted fixed weeks are assessed differently? I have a week 43 which has been converted to 154,000 points. According to the points chart this would equate to a 2 BR Plus.

I'm very puzzled by the whole converted fixed week type of contract. Anyone have any insight into this?

By the way, I only bought it for the points, so I'm not concerned about the different ARP system with this purchase, I'm just curious about the difference in the MF's posted here.
This is not uncommon. Check the spreadsheet from last years thread. you'll see the same resort listed multiple times with different MF. In some cases, i think it has to do with season. In others, i think it depends on the building your unit is in. I'm not an expert though.

Last year, it took me like three hours to create a spreadsheet for these, because we had a ton of people to were kind enough to provide us with their MF info. Also, I'm no excel expert, so that probably didn't help. Think we can get that to happen again? You provide the info, I'll provide the spreadsheet. Deal?
Just saw this post - an Excel spreadsheet is always appreciated! :whooopie:

You are paying the minimum program because you don't have 234,000 points or more.
With .56 program fee, your cost would be $5.54 per 1K.

Also 154K points for a 2-bed is low. At my fixed week resort in Pompano, a 2-bed in prime season gets 189K.

If you don't use the fixed week, it would be better to get something else.

See, I’d say that $4.98/k is pretty decent. The minimum program fee jacks it up but has nothing to do with the underlying rate per k.

I'm going to make it my goal to bother people to post the information to enable you to compile a full spreadsheet for next year. This information is so helpful to newbies. Like I was! I understand the difficulty with Converted Fixed Weeks and resorts with multiple HOA's that have different fees, but why can't we get every resort's Maintenance Fee for a UDI deed?

One thing that might work, if we can get enough people involved, is to call the resorts directly to get the rates. There are over 100 resorts, so we would need a minimum of 10 people, or at least 5 retired people who have time on their hands.

The problem is, even with UDI, there may be some instances where its different depending on which building or phase your interest is in. I know that's the case with some converted fixed weeks, but theoretically, it could be the same issue for UDI?

I know that's the case for Ocean Boulevard. I would suspect there are a number of others.
