It would probably be best to contact a few different insurance agencies for quote and specifics.

There are some very good local agencies that have been here in town many years.

Consider working with an agent of your own as he/she can provide you with all information needed--and do visit the areas of interest more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals, look at everything important to you, drive around, etc., and make your own comparisons/conclusions--opinions are often subjective --as for approximate basic costs--keep in mind that utility costs will vary depending on usage, property size, number of occupants, etc., you can contact the utility company, and ask for area statistics or ask the seller--as for the taxes, again they will vary by location, property size, schools, etc., ... more

If you have any further questions or would like additional information about either area, I would welcome the opportunity to work with you.

Dreamy Hollow is a co-op with about $850-$899 in monthly fees. You cannot rent out the properties you buy in a co-op situation and everyone who wishes to live there is interviewed by the co-op board. In a condo the common charges are much lower, ie. $100-350, based on whether it has a swimming pool, cluhouse, tennis courts etc.
If I can assist you more please call me.
