you have seen a lot of different answers here, all offering good alternatives. The big question is what is important to you? After all low fees can be a relative thing. For instance, what if an association charges $400 per month and includes cable ($79), internet ($49), water/sewer/trash ($100), alarm ($39), lawn care ($60) and the usual community amenities, and another charges $175 per month for the basics only. You would need to weigh out what is included, in the first example I gave, there are $330 in ordinary monthly bills included in the HOA. If you add those to the second "low fee" community, you can see that sometimes there is value when you break things down.
As far as communities go, Sail Harbor, Beachwalk, Bellasol all have relatively low fees. Bella Casa is a brand new community. Also, there is now 100% financing available for condos as well as other incentives with MarketWatchRealEstate.com.

Also take a look at our newest video:
Association fees vary depending on amenities and services covered. Sometimes what appears to be a high monthly fee, actually includes expenses you would have to pay anyway, such as insurance and maintenance. What is important to you? Security? Privacy?
I have access to and list a great deal of them along the river. Go to my website http://www.kevincloutier.com and just click on the city you want to be in and CONDOS, you will see ALL MLS listings there. And remember, North Fort Myers is the view side of the river and only has county taxes.
Call me if I can help!

There are some things to consider when discussing community fees. What do you get for your fee? Are you looking for a home with nothing to offer except cheap living? Then of course, look for the lowest fee. However, if this is a vacation property or there are other items you want such as boat dockage, pool, other recreation, you might pay a little more but get a lot more.
Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 239-707-4575 and I would be happy to discuss your options with you.

I would need more information. There are condos with low fees and most are not in a gated community. Some fees cover expenses you would have to pay, but the association would pay. I live in the 33908 area and would be happy to help in your search.
I look forward to working with you.
