Please start another thread if you want to debate the WSJ fees. Off-topic posts in this thread make it difficult for people who just want info. about the maintenance fees.

Future off-topic posts will be deleted for continuity.

Thanks, Jerry! You win an un-prize for the first MF bill! :D


Folks - please just post confirmed maintenance fees, instead of the proposed ones you may find on mystarcentral or get in the mail. I'm only going to post confirmed fees in the sorted list.

Net of SVN and ARDA is $2,356.93, an increase of $101.56 (4.5%).

We own an EOY WPORV - our base MFs (w/o SVN, Resort Fee, and ARDA) went from $1097.68 (2010) to $1148.47 - which is a 4.63% increase. There is a $30 (iirc) admin charge for owning an EOY included here.

Including SVN, ARDA and other fees can complicate the year-to-year %increase since they alter the calculation, and not similar for all Owners.

They must be building the refurbishing fee into the Original phase because I own at both (EOY in phase I) and the (EY) Palmetto phase is slightly bigger and the MF are almost $300 less- $674.73 vs $965.28
or it coul be the subsidy paid by Starwood because they are still in active sales. Either way the MF at SBP Palmetto are so much more reasonable.
