Dave thanks for posting your question. Condo fees vary between communities.

If you are in fact going to purchase a condo, there are larger issues to consider before making an offer. The biggest has to do with financing. If you are financing a condo, especially in southwest Florida please remember that not all condo communities are eligible for financing. Others are, but sometimes the buyer is required to put down much more than 20% . Sometimes it's up to 75%. Banks are still relatively afraid of condos depending on where they are and the health of the HOA.

That, coupled with the fees that a particular development charges will be an indicator of whether or not you can finance your condo. There's alot to know. I have seen many deals fall apart when agents and buyers make offers and don't have answers to some of these really important issues in advance. If you're a cash buyer, then disregard the previous info but keep in mind that you will want to investigate the financial health of the homeowners's association.

If you'd like, feel free to call me at 239-222-2727 or e-mail me at

Thanks Dave!
