Paul, Broker, Dane County, WI
The number and type of homeowner associations are varied across the Madison/Oregon/Dane County area. Some have no fee, some $50 a year, some $900. The fee may cover anything from maintaining a joint well to boulevard plantings or snow/lawn care, private road maintenance and beyond. Rules, covenants and restrictions will vary as widely as the fee. 'Common' is not the best description.
Are you seeking to be a member or trying to avoid being part of a homeowner association?
The reason I ask: Trulia may not have one, but I DO have a filter for homeowner associations.
