Maintenance Fees: How Do We Compare - Again!

When compared with other resorts in North America in the 2017 ARDA International Foundation “State of the Vacation Timeshare Industry Study” Pend Oreille Shores Resort’s Maintenance Fee was AGAIN substantially lower than most of the other resorts that contributed to the report! In 2013, Pend Oreille Shores was 45% less than the average, in 2014: 46% less, 2015 46% lower and in 2016, 47% lower than the average Maintenance Fee!

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.

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.

2013
Average Maintenance Fee: $845 (does NOT include Property Taxes)
Pend Oreille Shores Resort:
$515—$52.96 Property Taxes = $462.04

2014
Average Maintenance Fee: $880 (does NOT include Property Taxes)
Pend Oreille Shores Resort:
$530—$56.68 Property Taxes = $473.32

2015
Average Maintenance Fee: $920 (does NOT include Property Taxes)
Pend Oreille Shores Resort:
$545—$48.84 Property Taxes = $496.16

2016

Pend Oreille Shores Resort:
$560—$47.82 Property Taxes = $512.18

Even with the 2018 Special Assessment of $220, our owners are paying hundreds less than the average resort pays in Annual Maintenance Fees!!
