Condo-Searchers, Rejoice!

New, 5 comments

When you're searching for an abode to buy, what's more annoying than clicking on a great condo and seeing that it has HOA fees higher than your monthly mortgage? The answer: absolutely nothing. Okay, first world problems aside, it is something pretty disheartening for home-buyers, and there is finally a solution. Redfin announced recently that there will be an option to search by HOA maximum (presumably most people don't have a minimum amount they want to pony up for gold-plated garbage cans and fancy-pants door-persons). Of course, realtors may start "hiding" high HOA fees from their listings, but this is still a great step in the right direction. We tried it out and found some great condos in SF with HOA dues under $200 per month. Score!
