Silly little Robert Neson. Its 2013 you don't need the prices for 2011. I know you come from a long line of teachers and doctors so you should know this. You did grow up in a little house with many people though. So that can be stressful and get to your head sometimes and you get so caught up in thinking about your childhood that you have flash backs of 2011 which makes you think that it is in fact still 2011. Poor poor Roby, your living in the past you poor thing. You know Rebecca's would not want to see you like this. So shape up little Michael and get up to date cause the past is the past and the past cant be changed.

Hi Nelson,

Carl's numbers are good, average HOA fee is $270.
Dawn brings up a good point, are you referring to the HOA fee or just the typical cost of a condo on a monthly basis. Either way, anything less than $300. is pretty good. Of course you'll need to know what is included: pool, landscaping, water, trash, insurance....

good luck,

If you are talking about the HOA fee, it depends on the size of the project and amenities. Smaller buildings with no amenities can be under $200 per month, and larger ones can be significantly higher. I would think that on average Joanne's range is a good average.

If you are talking about maintaining your unit, this depends a lot on the age and condition and what things are covered by the HOA. Typically you will be responsible for any repairs in your unit.

It seems that $300 to $400 per months for condo association dues is pretty typical today. Things that run up the cost of HOA dues are amenities like pools, elevators, utilities used by occupants, and of course insurance for the complex.

Nelson, I am thinking you are talking about the interior since rhe exterior is covered by the HOA. There should not be monthly maintenance cost. Unless you add the cost of any carpet cleaning, plumbing repair, ac, electrical repair and/or painting touch ups and divide that by 12??
