HOA dues typically run between $250-500 in that general area. However, what is more important than the price is what is included with that price. A $250 HOA dues sounds cheap compared to a $400 one. But, if that $250 only cover ground maintenance while the $400 one includes ground maintenance, a fitness center, pool, insurance, etc. then the $250 is by far more expensive for what you are paying for. In other words, you will need to compare what services the HOA dues pay for more than just the price.... more

Inman is good and many agents have it on their website. I also have The Santa Clara County Real Estate Report on my website which has additional market data in various graph-like formats. There is a lot more that agents use. Many brokers provide their agents with subscription services to county records including maps and financial data. There is the MLS (which costs money too), other MLS access to farther reaching areas. I have a few more database subscription services I pay for myself and SilVAR (Silicon Valley Association of Realtors) has just implemented another system for its members called Clarus MarketMetrics. The amount an agent can spend is almost endless. In he past I have had subscriptions to foreclosure and REO data, demographic data, etc.
Are you interested in being an agent or following up on what your current agent is referring to?... more
