Just want to be more specific than the folks below. This condo has a monthly assessment fee (aka HOA dues) of $556, which covers Cable TV, Central Hot Water, Earthquake Ins., Garbage, Water and Sewer in this specific condominium. As it is indicated on the listing, there is no special assessment, the yearly assessment that Mr. Petersen talked about. However, this condo unit is a short sale. It means the price most likely is not approved by the seller's bank and also if there is any HOA lien on the unit, you may end up paying for it.
I specialize in condominium sale in north Seattle, and I have successfully presented several buyers in short sale transactions for several years. I know the rules for short sale, and I can assist you in successfully closing a short sale transaction and avoiding a difficult and mostly likely will-fall-apart transaction.
