HOA fees are $280.00 a month. Fees typically cover outside maintenance, grounds and some roofs. Each HOA is a bit different. Most important thing to find out about HOA's are whether they are fiscally strong and have enough in reserves to maintain the association. Also, if you are financing the property you need to make sure your mortgage company will finance on this or any other condo. Most mortgage companies have a list of qualified condos who they will lend on.
Hope this information is helpful. If you would like to see the property, or need a good lender, please let me know. I cover the Sonoma County area.
