The HOA fees vary by condo and are typically calculated by area (square foot). Follow the link for a complete chart.

Here are the HOA fees per square foot for each Albany condo in Center Square. These are actual numbers that I pulled from the MLS. The price per square foot in each building should not vary from unit to unit within the same building. In other words, regardless of the size of the unit (let's say in 270 Hudson), the owner will pay the same HOA fee per square foot.

You can see that the HOA per square foot varies from building to building, but so does the included utilities. You should also consider parking and central air -- two amenities not included below. The most comparable building to 270 Hudson is 409 Madison (based on parking, central air, age of the units) and the HOA fees are similar.

I am assuming you mean "small cape" house. A ranch has all of the rooms on one floor. A cape usually has the living room, kitchen, dining room, bathroom and one or 2 bedrooms on the first floor with additional bedrooms and possibly a bathroom on the second floor. The rooms on the second floor are affected by the slope of the roof. ... more

I just took a look through our local Multiple Listing Service. There are 261 single family homes for sale in the city of Albany and 1,185 single family homes for sale in Albany County. Based on MLS data only 5 single family foreclosures are listed for sale in Albany and 19 in Albany County. I think the number of foreclosures is under reported. Remember this is just MLS data. Home may not be coded correctly or many foreclosures may be purchased at the court house and never make it to be listed with a realtor. This data provides some guidance to the number of homes for sale though. Taxes in the city of of Albany can be found by calling the city and school districts direct to get actual numbers. In general, your tax rate for Albany will be roughly 28/$1000 of assessed value for a single family homestead home. However, the actual numbers should be verified with a phone call. Hope this helps. ... more
