All are 2BR dedicated units.

Proposed $602.85 MF + $117.11 reserve = $682.29, not including taxes or SVN fee. MF includes $32.24 surplus from previous year (so would have been $635.09).

Just under 10% of budgetted MFs are for uncollectable accounts.

Last year was $608.43 MF + $73.86 reserve + taxes, so essentially unchanged other than an increase in the reserves.

To be approved at Oct 25th board meeting...

For 2012, the MF bill for my 3-br lockoff was $3,025.17 without the SVN fee. With the SVN fee, it was $3,150.17.

If the SVN fee is not included in your 2013 amount, 2013 is a 2.8% increase over 2012. Salty

SVR Cascade (proposed)

1BR - $265.36 MF + $64.50 reserve = $315.73
2BR - $550.96 MF + $134.45 reserve = $655.96
2BR L/O - $715.25 MF + $174.68 reserve = $851.67

None including taxes or SVN fee.

MF includes $27.36/$57.02/$74.09 surplus from previous year (so MF portions would have been $292.72/$607.98/$789.34).

Just over 6% of budgetted MFs are for uncollectable accounts.

Last year was $291.53/$605.51/$786.11 + reserve + taxes, so essentially unchanged (before considering the carried forward surplus) other than a :eek: 55% increase in the reserves.

That's great news for SBP owners! It gives me hope that SDO's mf will in fact decrease after the renovation.

Westin Riverfront EOY 2BR L/O posted on MSC:

Maintenance Fee(s) $ 746.93
Tax - If Applicable $ 17.86

Last Year:

Maintenance Fee(s) $ 743.49
Tax - If Applicable $ 39.10

Not sure why such a big drop in taxes. I have a feeling that may be adjusted higher, I recall that happening in the past.

Maint Fees is less the 1 % increase though.

Looks like WKORV was posted on MSC as well. EY 2BR L/O

2013:

Maintenance Fee(s) $ 2,091.04

2012:

Maintenance Fee(s) $ 2,050.53

Its nice to see these small increases across the board. And a well overdue SBP decrease! I thought all you owners would never catch a break with that place :)

You can keep budgeted expenses down by reducing the percentage of loss due to MF non-payors.

In past years, as delinquencies skyrocketed due to the economy, Starwood prudently raised the allowance due to non-payors. It caused the MFs to go up more than normal. Some who did not understand what was going on screamed bloody murder.

Now, there are more owners who are forecast to pay their assessments. So, as the loss percentage goes down, the MF rises are slight to nothing for 2013. Salty
