Take note that the taxes and assessment monthly you are looking at does not include parking assessments or parking taxes. Also, it is a developer that is trying to sell the units so they will often make the monthly payments as attractive as possible, it is a fairly new building so probably nothing much is needed right now but eventually the monthly assessment may increase to cover regular maintenance and reserves for the future. Taxes estimate to 1.5% to 2% of the purchase price as this is what they may be in the near future (about). This is fairly easy to see and get a good idea, although prices are often firm on things like this a good broker can negotiate other things for you such as finishes or and help you sort through the many options for your use now and future resale and basically make sure you are not being taken to the cleaners. Let me know any questions anytime. ... more
