Property taxes are different for every property. I suggest going to the city of Fairhope website. Go to the probate tab and search for the property there to find the property tax amount. If you have any questions please feel free to ask. ... more

I can see your concern but there are enough variety in the communities down here that you can find what you are looking for. One question you need to consider is whether or not you would be okay with a condo or do you specifically want a single family home. There are several condo developments that came to mind when I was reading your post: The Enclave, Emerald Greens. And a condo could give you the community and amenities you are looking for without all of the maintenance needed from a single family home.

Good luck in your search and remember, I am here to help if you need me!

Dear Lisa,
Different condominium associations break down fees in different ways. Most common way is to include the common area (building exterior, grounds, amenities) insurance in the monthly fee breakdown. Some associations, however, divide up fees and assessments differently. For example, some associations may levy an annual assessment to cover the insurance costs, since insurance can vary from year to year. This assessment can be paid in full, or it is often broken into parts. A Master assessment applies to certain complexes that may have more than 1 tower and that share amenities - The Beach Club is one example.
When I work with condo buyers, these are factors that I work in as we prepare our condo comparison sheet. I will be happy to provide specific fees for specific buildings. Just email or call me any time - 251-609-9994.

I've just sold one there not too long ago. The average at the time was about $77 dollars a square foot. That is not the most current CMA, so I would have to do another before I can give you current conditions.

If your buying a condo that lets say is 80,000 and your putting down 20%, then your looking at a $64,000 mortgage. If you finance a 30 year mortgage at 4.5% interest your looking at $325 dollars a month in payment. Be aware that YC does have HOA fees that are about $400 a month. So your looking at spending $725 monthly.

Hope that helped! The numbers were only an estimate and not fact. A lender would give you the exact amount, because it would vary depending on interest rate and home value.

Good luck!

Tyson Barnhart answered:
Hi Tonnie,
A home owners association fee or HOA, is a fee that is collected on a monthly basis for the community in which the home or condo is located. Fees can very quite a bit from a complex or subdivision and even the size of home can make a difference in how much you pay compared to your neighbor. HOA's fees are typically collected by a management company and they use the money to maintain the community areas of the property. For example... gardener, pool service, handyman, etc.
Hope that helps.

I suggest calling the school or the Baldwin County Board of Education. The maps do not always reflect the most recent changes in boundaries. I hope this helps.
