As you can see the cost varies, as does the size of each complex. There are complexes with 300 plus units, and complexes with four, so it really depends on the HOA. I also didn't see the article about this, but it wouldn't change the amount of an HOA's document fee! If you're in escrow, and you're thinking the HOA fees are high, or you've been quoted a high price from your agent, just call your HOA to verify. And, yes, sometimes we think some of them charge too much too!
