Depends on what services the home owners association covers; I.e..grounds keeping, exterior maintenance, roof replacements, ammenities and utilities provided etc. Also keep in mind that on top of that a buyer will be looking at (or should be asking about) how much is in reserves and what structural repairs are forthcoming. Will assessments be added? If so will seller be willing to pay the assessments at closing? Do the buyer a favor; have minutes of meetings for the last 6 months available for potential buyers to read, showing the strength of the HOA. If it's not strong, and if there are assessments pending, structural issues, litigations etc, be sure to disclose these in the listing and price the home to sell, not to sit. Be the house to buyers want to buy. Buyer's will look at the whole picture and if they see a nice value, a well kept home, a seller who provides disclosures for review prior to an offer and has the home well staged you won't have to worry about the HOA fees being an issue. The purchase price will be the issue in most cases. Anyone looking for a condo knows they'll be faced with HOA's. They just don't like surprises! So dispell any potential issues from the beginning with a well prepared listing. And best of sale to you.
