The previous answers just about covered what you are asking about. One thing was not addressed; however. It would be unusual for this to happen in the Coral springs area for a single family home, but HOA fees have increased in many other areas because of the short sale and foreclosure situation. Those people whose homes have been foreclosed have undoubtedly not paid their HOA dues. That was pretty prevalent in some upscale communities such as Heron Bay in Coral Springs/Parkland. In cases like that, residents still expect amenities, and those that pay end up paying for those that don't.
This has been a very unique market...I'm sure we all hope not to see anything like it again, but it certainly presented some unusual situations that have not been issues before.
I'd love to help you find a home and/or answer any questions that you may have. Please feel free to contact me at

Each homeowner association is different when it comes to what they cover or not cover. Most single family homes HOA fees do not include the homeowner's insurance portion, that's why they are lower than the condo/townhouse's associations. They usually include maintenance of the common areas, security such as gate/guard, pool maintenance, landscaping, lawn (not always), etc.
The home you saw in Kensington Green with $415 HOA is per quarter, not monthly, that's why it sounds high. In any case, that listing is a foreclosure and as a Realtor I always double check with the association for my buyers because the information is not always accurate, being that the owner is no longer living at the property. You don't want to have a surprise later on.
I would love to get some information on what you are looking for so I can send you a list of the homes with your criteria with the HOA fees that are acceptable to you. Remember, there are many homes in those zip codes that don't have association, therefore, no HOA fees.

I look forward to helping you with your home search.
