Let me get a little more specific now.
I love Olde Town Villages, and Avila in Palencia, even though I haven't actually seen one, looks like something I would like too. They are both selling in my price range.
Could someone compare for me the 2 condos?
1. HOA pays?
2. HOA price?
3 CCD costs?
If you are looking at Town Homes and Condos that have HOA fees you would be wise to also make sure there are not separate yearly CDD fees also. CDD fees can be minimal but can also range up to $1000 a year and even more. So if you are looking to stay in your price range always ask if there are CDD fees as well as HOA fees. Hope this helps you. Please feel free to contact me.

Condos fees always cover exterior, insurance on the exterior of the building, all of the common areas, which can include walkways, elevators, interior hallways, exercise rooms, clubhouses, etc. Sometimes it includes water, sewer, management, garbage, etc. also.
Generally townhomes are structured to keep their fees low and to have the owners pay for as much on their own as possible
The biggest variable can be whether they are saving money for future repairs. This money is known as reserves, and is very important.
