Only a 1.7% increase for SSR. I can live with that.

No show that DVC pinned BLT with the largest % increase. They are going to make that up somewhere and the low MFs were a bait for the direct sales (no longer needed).

It's now 2 years in a row that BLT has had the highest annual MF increases. Given that the high rise complex should be cheaper to maintain, that the large increases only started happening once the resort was sold out and that there were problems with Aulani 's original MF it sure looks like the MF at BLT were kept artificially low while BLT was for sale and that they are making up for it now.

If these type of increases continue in 2-3 years BLT is going to have higher MF than SSR. If I was a BLT owner I would not be very happy!

I'm a little surprised at the 4.4% increase for AKV. I usually budget for a 3% increase so that caught me off guard. OTOH, only 1.4% for HHI was a nice surprise. It looks like my MF's will be about $870 this year. I bought $800 worth of Disney gift cards from Target and paid $722 for them. It looks like I'll have to get one more $50 card (for $47.50) which will make my total out-of-pocket cost about $790. I love Target! I'm saving about 9% on my MF's.

I have $40 deposited every two weeks into my online savings account which I use to pay our MF's every year. We bought our HHI contract direct last January and financed it. Since I budgeted about $1050 for MF's and I am only paying about $800, I can take the extra $250 in the account and make an extra payment on the loan,

There was a reason that the President of DVD/DVC and other executives were fired after the Aulani dues incident.

My guess is that other new resorts had the same accounting errors and now the new DVD/DVC Vice President is correcting the errors.

There were many threads about BLT dues being too low when the resort first went on sale. During this time I started questioning the DVC system and how accurate the accountings are.

How did you come up with 1.7%?

I calculate the percentage increase at 2.35%. (4.8129 - 4.7024)/4.7024 = 2.35%

SSR dues for 2012 are $4.7309 per point.

That's not what I've been charged over the course of the past year. I realize it's only $0.03, but the monthly withdrawals equate to 4.7024 per point. Not sure where the discrepancy is.

You would have to look at the details of your dues withdrawl. Any number of adjustments are possible, including a credit based upon overestimation of property taxes in the prior year.

I double-checked the notice from last year and 4.7309 is what DVC published.
