Timeshare & Resort Reserve Study

RDA gives resort properties one less thing to worry about.

The Advantages of a Resort Reserve Study

Resort properties maintain a multitude of structures, facilities, and components to give visitors and members the best possible experience. While these structures and elements require routine maintenance, there will eventually come a time when they will require major repairs or replacements. The budget for these repairs or replacements is often difficult to determine without a full study.


A resort reserve analysis helps such properties identify the level of funding they need to meet major expenditures. This analysis includes an evaluation of the resort’s components and current funding balance, which are then used for resort capital planning. At its core, a reserve study tells you how much money you need in your reserves at any point in time and how much you need to deposit in your reserve account to maintain the correct funding level.


Without a reserve study, a resort property would have no way of knowing whether or not its reserves are adequately funded. Faced with a major repair or replacement cost, a resort would have no other choice but to take out a loan or seek other funding options.
