Should I buy the condo with the lowest dues?
Not Necessarily. Sincerely consider what the dues cover, this varies from one condo association to the next. Dues can cover any number of things including but not limited to: Heat, water, electricity, grounds maintenance, snow removal, or even cable TV. If the dues associated with a specific condo seem high, a buyer should carefully consider what they would otherwise be paying if they owned a their own house and purchased these services for themselves.
When purchasing a condo, your lender will carefully review the economic stability of the homeowner's association among other variables, this will help to ensure that the association has adequate funds when major maintenance becomes necessary, such as roofs, paving, etc... If a condo association has unusually low dues, the association may issue a special assessment, which is a temporary increase in dues to cover such expenses.
