As one other has commented, be very wary of the Sierra Winds "return of capital" plans. My family member died in 2011 and nothing has been paid back to the estate. Their unit is still vacant. Sierra Winds won't return any capital to the deceased's estate until the unit is re-sold. Problem is, if you read the contract carefully, no where does it define any time period for repayment. It is open ended --could be one year, ten years, fifteen years -- or never?

My family member past away in 2010 and still waiting for the return of entrance fee as per the agreement. Receive no contact from them or interest on the 6 figure amount to be returned as per agreement. Seriously look at the agreement with the additional money under the term will be paid back upon death or leaving.
