This is a monthly fee for services, maintance & utilities. But not always for all properties. Ths is an older property and condos will sometimes do a special assessment to all owners for whatever repairs/improvements a majority of the owners vote To approve. When buying a condo you are marrying all the other owners and hopefully the are reasonable and workable bunch. It can be a nightmare and it can be heaven, choose wisely where you buy.

Since no one seems to be specifically aswering your question, I will. The 683 HOA at Turtle Creek Gardens is due monthly. Your HOA rate there depends on the square footing of the unit. The HOA monthly dues there cover everything from your basica cable, water, heat, electricity, up keep of grounds and etc. The only thing you would be responsible for is your internet, land line if choose to have one and your home owners insurance. Everything else is covered. Some pple will tell you that's a lot but by the time you start doing the math for a similar sized unit and complex and what your HOA's will be there it really is a pretty good deal considering most HOA's run around 300 and up and don't cover all that Turtle Creek Gardens does. I am speaking as a resident there and who did a lot of shopping before I purchased my wonderful unit there. If you have any other questions about the complex and want to speak to an owner feel free to contact me. I also know of an amazingly top of the line totally gutted and redone unit that is about to be put on the market there. It's my friends unit. They spared no expensense in renovating it. I hope this answers your question and let me know if you have any more and I will try and aswer them for you. I can also put you in contact with a wonderful agent if needing one. He helped me through the whole process and really cares about his clients. He will make sure you get a great deal where ever you decide to purchase and he knows all the areas well from growing up here. He won't allow you to make a bad investment.

Great answer! I agree, if it covers water, electricity, etc.- great deal.

A tiny suggestion: even if you know how much HOA fees, while you are buying that property , it can change.
It happened to my clients.
Ex.: when a listing agent took a listing, it was 255/m, when we closed 2 months later~ my client found out that it changed to 337/m.
Go figure...

Hi Judith,

HOA is per month. This covers all utilities and basic cable. That includes electricity.
There's a few places like this that cover electricity, but I often think this makes resale hard.
When you start pushing HOA dues over about $300 many people want to think twice about it.

Check out the link below for more area condos and townhomes. Let me know if you would like to see inside any if you are planning to visit Uptown or Oaklawn.

Welcome to Dallas.

Hi Juduth,

Those HOA's are to be paid per month... Are you in the market to buy something here in the Turtle Creek, or Uptown Dallas area?
