Hi Aberim,

HOA’s have annual financials/budget for the complex which include monthly operating costs, balances in reserve & operating accounts, etc. It’s possible that your dues seem high and have been increasing because you are in an older building. As a building ages there can be more required maintenance as systems come to the end of their useful life.

Some associations may choose to increase monthly dues by an agreed on amount per year rather than pass through special assessments in order to build up the reserve account.

Typically, a portion of your monthly dues go into a reserve account & a portion goes towards monthly operating expenses for common areas, management, etc. This is all laid out in the budget/financials which owners are provided copies of.

If you want to do your own independent research on how funds are allocated contact Jacquie Berry:

She specializes in HOA/financial analysis. I typically have my buyers hire her during their inspection period to determine how well funded the reserve account is since this plays a role in value/purchase price of a condo.

Good luck!

Dear Nigel,

This is a brand new building still being constructed. 25 units have been released out of 114. They have sold 10 of them. Right now all finishes are just being shown only at the office with a kitchen and bathroom built out. Sale prices for the complex can be obtained when you are there with the Developer's Reps.

In about 2 weeks or so, model units inside the building will be relased for viewing. At that time, they expect more units to be released for sale.

Move-in dates are now scheduled for March, but with new construction, that can often be pushed back. I would suggest you take a realtor with you to help negotiate some extras for you at SFBlu or at any other new construction complexes. Your agent will have a fudiciary responsibility to you instead of the Developer.

I have sold many units at newly constructed buildings and would be pleased to work with you. You can check out some recent sales on my website. That being said, many agents would also welcome the opportunity.
