    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.

    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.

    Are these numbers including program fee.
    Wyndham Flagstaff 2 bedroom converted to 154K points
    MF $ 593.44
    Reserve $ 147.00
    Prop Tax $ 26.88
    total $ 767.32 $ 4.98 per 1K

    Program fee $ 131.00

    total with program $ 898.32 $ 5.833 per 1K

    maybe i need to find cheaper points ?

    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.

    Dear ,


    Delivering great vacations for you and your guests is our top priority, and we're committed to ensuring that each and every one of your vacation experiences are enjoyable from start to finish. We hope that all of your travels to a CLUB WYNDHAM® Plus resort are special and memorable — leaving a lasting impression for you and your loved ones.

    As we come to the end of another year, we'd like to thank you for being a valued member of our CLUB WYNDHAM Plus family, reflect on a few highlights of 2018, and share some of our commitments for the future.

    New Destinations: Austin, Texas - In early 2018, Wyndham Austin was introduced — bringing something exciting, something new, something “weird” into the CLUB WYNDHAM Plus resort collection. Live music and an eclectic culinary scene is the lifeline of this quirky-at-heart city. Austin proves to be a one-of-a-kind vacation destination, with oddball landmarks, unique museums and the sunset over Congress Avenue Bridge.

    Portland, Oregon - We're also pleased to announce the proposed future CLUB WYNDHAM Plus resort, Wyndham Portland Waterfront Park. The Portland region is a highly sought-after vacation destination, which will provide a creative and cool metropolitan vacation experience. Home to the famous Portland Saturday Market, get ready to enjoy a bustling entertainment district in the Pacific Northwest, local distilleries and Oregon Maritime Museum — a new and exciting West Coast addition to an already stellar collection of metropolitan resorts.

    Getting Inspired: We want to give you every opportunity to make the most of your membership and optimize every advantage and benefit you have available. We've recognized that learning is essential, and have dedicated resources to provide you with additional ways to understand your ownership. Your Owner Education team has worked to offer the best advice, planning guidance, and sought-after answers to your frequently asked questions. Education sessions engage participants to get inspired to plan that next great vacation, and will continue in 2019. Most importantly, these sessions not only shared how to get on vacation, but where to find the best deals on vacations! Located in the Benefits section on myclubwyndham.com, Deals & Offers show you the best resorts available at the best discounted rate available.

    In the upcoming year, we are excited to help get you and your loved ones on vacation, and we are pleased to continue pursuing additional ways to offer exciting travel options. Stay tuned as we explore ways to enhance the program and continue providing exceptional service!

    As approved by your FairShare Vacation Owner Association Board of Directors, the current CLUB WYNDHAM Plus program fees will change in 2019. As a reminder, program fees are based on your annual point allocation or half of your biennial point allocation. Your enclosed Annual Assessment Summary includes your program fees as well as your Maintenance Fees voted on by the Board of Directors at your home resort.

    Member with PlusPartners ® $0.60 per 1,000 points or a minimum Program Fee charge of $155 per year, whichever is greater
    Members without PlusPartners ® $0.58 per 1,000 points or a minimum Program Fee charge of $135 per year, whichever is greater
    CLUB WYNDHAM® Presidential Reserve $0.66 per 1,000 points for the first one million points, then $0.60 per 1,000 points for the remaining points owned under the membership

    Whether you visit your favorite resort each year or choose to explore new places, you expect nothing but the best from CLUB WYNDHAM. The convenient amenities, dedicated service, and exceptional conditions you enjoy while on vacation are funded through a Maintenance Fee that you share with fellow CLUB WYNDHAM owners. Read more about the benefits of your Maintenance Fees by visiting myclubwyndham.com/maintenancefees.

    Be sure to also visit myclubwyndham.com or call 800-251-8736 to speak with our Vacation Planning Center to discover all of the amazing resorts and fabulous vacation opportunities available to you, and to make a reservation for your next CLUB WYNDHAM getaway. Once again, we would like to thank you and your family for another wonderful year of making moments, special memories and vacation fun. We look forward to serving you in 2019 and for many years to come.

    Warm regards,

    CLUB WYNDHAM® Plus Management Team

    We'll probably need a 2019 thread soon, but La Belle Maison is going up to $5.48 per thousand points, up from $5.27 in '18.
