So if they are not there in the Public Brevard County MLS site, then the agent did not put them in. Some agents do many htings to get people to ask them by contacting them directly to build business. Please do not mind this tactic, because we all would like to have many more buyers, allowing us to make a descent living.
But these must be disclosed to a potential buyer by FREC when a contract is written.
It is your choice whom you would like to work with of course.

Buyers should not rely on the seller's current property taxes as the amount of property taxes that the buyer may be obligated to pay because the taxes stated are from the year prior to the purchase. A change of ownership or property improvements triggers reassessments of the property that could result in higher property taxes. Information for Brevard County and their millage rates are available on the property appraiser's web site.
I think all buyers realize that last years taxes will be a bit less than this years taxes. But if we know what it was last year we can ballpark it to be fairly close to a real number. If hoa fees change a lot, that is just a better reason to stay away from hoa's at any cost.
If all you find missing are hoa fees and taxes you are lucky. I almost never find the year built, lot size, and most other details I want. It appears that many who post real estate info do not want to put any details in them as it takes time and could discourage a buyer if they saw the details they leave out.
As for the current HOA or COA fees, I would recommend verifying with the assocation board of what the current dues/fees are. Our local MLS does have the information on what the fees/dues are, but are only as accurate as the person entering in the information.
Taxes and Home Owner's Association fees are almost always disclosed on the Multiple Listing Service. Buyers looking for property can search different sites for properties but should contact a Realtor to get all relevant information. One's Realtor always has access to all pertinent information or can find out more from the listing agent or property owner. Another reason why using a Realtor is a definite advantage.
Happy New Year!

Not sure what FREC is, but I am assuming it is some sort of Florida Real Estate something. I used to do loans in Florida, but have not for the past 2+ years, so I am not sure how they deal with the fact that properties are reassessed based on purchase price, if that is still the case.

As your broker to get all the HOA 's to send a copy of each of there rules and reg's and keep opies in the office so everyone can make copies for buyers. But someone in charge should make sure they get copies of the changes and minutes for each year to bring them up to date. Yes it is a lot o work at times, but it will save time and money in the long run. Good luck to all that read this.
