Starfish, that is always a subject of debate. You can have PG&E do a free test.

You will hear a lot of debates on this. Resale is what you will also want to take into consideration, because if you are questioning it, so will others.

All the best to you.

Hello Wymanvic:

Unfortunately, to my knowledge, no such database exists for condominiums or co-ops in Santa Clara County. HOA fees are a function of:

1) Age of the community
2) Common elements and amenties
3) Maintenance of the community in the past
4) Funding

Since the above four issues can vary greatly from community to community, it is impossible to draw an average or even to put statistics together that would be more meaningful than a bowl of mixed fruit. You might try contacting the Executive Council of Home Owners (ECHO) in San Jose to see if they have any information that can be of assistance. ECHO provides HOA advocacy services to local area homeowners associations, and can tell you some information about the communities. As to assessments, however, it is unlikely that they can provide you with any information there since assessments in our state are not publicly published except occasionally when homes are listed for sale on the MLS.

Hi Frances,
Your best options are Morgan Hills (closer to San Jose) or Gilroy (approx. half way). Hwy 101 between San Jose and Morgan Hills has 4 lanes now, so commute is much better than before. ... more
