These HOA dues are very reasonable at $45/month for community area & road maintenance and insurance. This property sold in 2/28/08 at $460K and was on the market 331 days. Another unit in the same development just sold in 9/16/09 at $447K it was $247.10 per sq. ft. and sold at 94.11% of asking price. This is a great 4-unit development by Steve Collins. Let me know if you have any other questions.
Like everyone has said, absolutely nothing typical about HOA fees in the "City Different".
I did check on this property for you, 2372-D Camino Hualapai. Seems like a bargain at $45.00 per month!
As per the previous anwsers the HOA can vary from 0 to a several hundred a month depending on the size of the complex to the amount of amenities. Unfortunately this particular listing does not have any fees listed but I would be happy to get that information for you if you would like.
Most HOA's cover maintenance and insurance for common areas. Those with no fees have a "gentlemans agreement" to share in yearly insurance fees, and other incidententals such as road/driveway maintenance. Those with much high fees generally offer amenities such as tennis courts, swimming pools, walking trails.
Hopefully this answers some of your questions.
