Most likely association fees will continue to go up along with the cost of living in general. However, it is very, very important that you examine the operating and financial statements for the association, before you buy. Like everything else, all associations are not run the same. Some, with good management and careful spending do a great job; others are run poorly and they just waste the residents money. I hope this helps.
