Nancy, every community is different regarding what is covered in the HOA Fees.
Furthermore, the HOA fees are only one element to consider.
It is possible a community has very low published HOA fees but historically issue an assessment to each homeowner to correct for the shortfall of income and operating expenses.

Brand new communities will typically have lower HOA fees becuase the REAL costs are unknown and as the community ages, the fees are adjusted accordingly.

As BIll indicated, what is included can result is absolute maintenance free living including manned security, video surveillance, vacant home monitoring and concierge services to as little as keep the light on that illuminates the community sign.

A local REALTOR will be very familiar with what is included in the HOA fees. Be aware, even within a community, what is covered by the HOA may very.

Best of success,

Honestly the SSI check is not the problem the AMOUNT is so you would be most likely able to qualify for Section 8 housing or one of the FL projects UNLESS you have enough to pay off the mortgage.
In FL your SSI would be around $630.00 a month expect an electric bill to between $250 - $300.
Good luck.
