Hello,

I am considering buying a 2bd unit at SDO for the primary purpose of trading with II (mainly the Hawaii starwood properties). Although, some years we would probably use the unit for Spring Training as our family enjoys that as well.

The question i have is about my math assumptions needed for my business case. If we banked a two bedroom lockout with II, we could trade it for EITHER two weeks in a one bedroom unit OR one week in a two bedroom unit, correct?

So the cost breakdown would look like this (rounded to simplify the calculations).

Maintenance fees for two bedroom SDO: $1,000 (rounded)

II annual fee: $70

II exchange fee (for one week in Hawaii): $140

II exchange fee (for one week in Hawaii): $140

Total cost for one bedroom in hawaii for two weeks is $1,350 or $675/week.

Total cost for a two bedroom unit in Hawaii for only one week would be $1,210 (only have one II exchange so it cost less).

Are my calculations correct or am i missing something? Any insight is appreciated as i want to make sure i understand all the facts before i buy real property.
