Maintenance Fees: How Do We Compare—Again?!

When compared with other resorts in North America in the 2016 ARDA International Foundation “State of the Vacation Timeshare Industry Study” conducted by Ernst & Young LLP, Pend Oreille Shores Resort’s Maintenance Fee was AGAIN substantially lower than most of the other resorts in the study! In 2013, Pend Oreille Shores was 45% less than the average, in 2014, 45% less once again and in 2015 46% lower!
For the maintenance fee comparisons, property taxes are NOT included because many resort owners are billed separately for their property taxes. Also, omitting the property taxes gives a more accurate comparison of the operational expenses of the resorts.
Add to this comparison the fact that Pend Oreille Shores has had only one Special Assessment ($150) in its 33 year history. So we are doing the very best we can (with good results) to handle owners’ monies in a fiscally conservative manner while keeping the resort at Gold Crown standards.
