Bill,

Not to be critical but rather just to be informed, why will you NOT be paying the ARDA fees? I always thought of ARDA as being representative of the t/s owners interests. Am I wrong here?

Doesn't the "D" in ARDA stand for Devoloper? I also don't give them any money.

I received my property tax bill from Riverside County for 2010 recently and it equals $178.38 for the year (can pay in 2 installments). We bought resale in 2008 and paid about $11,000 for platinum week including closing costs. I'm surprised your taxes are lower, but I'm sure they are all over the place.

I'm happy that the MF only increased $20 over last year. Hope my 2 Barony weeks come in that low.

This info was copied from vacationclub.com web site. I think the reserve fee of $93.94 is a loan repayment, but I am not sure.

Are there any major rises in MF's this year? It appears to me that the fees being reported are either slightly less or slightly more, but I haven read any reports of any major increases.

OTOH, if you read on the Starwood Board, it has been a bloodbath, with huge increases in fees even in this economy, despite cuts in services, reportedly due at least in part to delinquencies/foreclosures.

It is nice to see that Marriott has managed to curtail costs and is reflective of the economic situation surrounding everyone. I hope that portends well for the future.

Frenchman's Cove, 3 BR Gold:

2009 = $1,295.57

2010 Operating 1,623.79
2010 Reserve 246.59
2010 Subsidy (319.81)

2010 TOTAL: $1,550.57

I'm a little stunned, frankly - this is almost a 20% increase from 2009. Maybe they're hitting the 3BR's with larger increases but I plan to call just to understand this better.

I don't understand the increase difference between a 2bdrm and a 3bdrm at the same resort either. This has never happened to me at MPB where I own both a 2bdrm and a 3bdrm. The increases have always been the same percentage wise.

Not to rain on your parade any further but they haven't settled the tax bill at MFC yet. I'm guessing around $150-200 per unit per year when they get around to it but so far that leaves me with a back tax bill of about $1600 and counting. When I asked the sales rep about MF's at MFC he said they'd be comparable to Aruba. So far that's pretty accurate if you add a little extra for taxes at MFC.

Starting to understand this a little more - it seems the operating fee is basically unchanged while the reserve went up and the subsidy went down. Here's the line-by-line, but for the life of me I can't get it to space well:

2009 2010 Variance
Operating Fee 1622.06 1623.79 0.11%
Replacement Resrv 169.65 246.59 45.35%
Developer Subsidy (496.14) (319.81) (35.54%)

TOTAL: 1295.57 1550.57 19.68%


Looking through my paperwork now about any guidance regarding developer subsidies - it looks like it went up from 2008 to 2009, then this 35% drop for 2010.
