Hi, Jeff Granoff here, from GRL & REALTORS, in New Haven. The reason the monthly fee is higher than expected for a condo is because it also includes heat, hot water, and property taxes. In addition, 40% of the monthly fee is tax deductable. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me. My phone is 203-494-1337. There are several units currently available. It would be my pleasure to help you find a new home.
