The HOA fees for this property are $238 per mo. It includes all the amenities, pool, gym, conference room, and even high speed internet in the actual unit, as well as common areas, you do not pay for internet service. How do I know this? This is my unit.

There are some good properties still on the market in that price point, but they do not last long at all. In this market it is hard to get everything you may want (good school district, nice/safe area, newer construction, etc) for under $100k, but these types of listings do pop up every now and then. When they do come on the market, be prepared and plan to act very quickly. Not only will there be a lot of competition for these types of properties, but there will also be a great deal of investors (cash buyers) after them as well.

Feel free to contact me at anytime if I can further assist you.

You want to get with an experienced realtor with experience working with buyers (buyers agent). By sitting down with a qualified realtor and mapping out what you are looking for (search criteria) and developing a strategy to target those property types, you will be a step ahead of the pack.

In my experience, I set my clients up to be notified immediately through email when a property that fits their criteria hits the market. This allows clients to remain aggresive and keeps them on top of market conditions.

I also maintain a healthy network within the industry and often get leads about upcoming listings before they are listed. This is another good way to stay aware of current market conditions and puts you in a position to move quickly once the home is listed.

Open communication (quick response time) is another good way for you to get the answers you need in a timely manner (HOA fees, etc).
