What an exciting new chapter! It’s good that you know ahead of time you may need to expect HOA fees when you move. While the average cost of HOA fees falls between $200 and $300 per month, they can vary pretty widely.
How much they cost in
depends on the community and the type of property you’re living in.
HOA fees cover various costs and services that come with maintaining a building or property. Those can include amenities like building pools and fitness centers and general
and repair costs, as well as the salaries of building staff, like the superintendent or doorperson.
If you’re living in areas with higher costs of living, like the
Bay Area
, you may see monthly HOA fees that extend into the thousands. The more perks your building or property has, the higher your HOA fee will likely be.
