Search Seattle Condos For Sale by HOA Dues

Searching for a condo can be difficult. HOA dues add a mystery element to your budget. A $300,000 condo may have $400/mo homeowners association dues, while a $600,000 condo might have $300/mo HOA dues.

Your budget is important when getting a pre-approval for a mortgage to buy a Seattle condo. We've simplified the process.

 - Search Seattle condos: How much are the HOA dues? -

You can use our detailed condo search to narrow down your condos results via how expensive the monthly homeowners association dues are. 

Homeowners association dues can cover a lot of different things Low dues don't always mean a bargain. HOA dues can cover a condo's electricity, gas, water, garbage, cable tv, hot water, concierge services, etc. In co-ops they can even cover property taxes. Those amenities that aren't covered by your HOA dues are usually paid directly by the condo owner. 

So don't get too set on a certain HOA dues amount until you see what amenities those dues cover. Condo buildings vary widely, so have an experienced condo agent help you with your search. We're ready when you are.

If you still need to sell your current condo let's make sure we have your strategy right to sell for top dollar in this complex, fast-moving environment. Give us a call any time. Also, download our guide:
