What the hell is going on with this HOA prices?

Even a 450-550K condos have $700 and upwards HOA fees now -_-

Buying a house looks more sensible every day, because I don't want to pay a small rent for the amenities that I will never use.

Most of that (believe it or not) is for insurance and maintenance of the building itself. Gotta pay cleaners, pressure cleaners, maintenance staff, property managers, etc. and insure a 300+ unit building against damage from storm, flood, etc. Having said that, I agree with you that it definitely throws a wrench into the home buying equation.


Yeah the housing market in Miami intimidates me…moved here a year ago, good tech salary and have savings, but I’m not sure I’ll be able to compete with folks who put all cash down, go above asking price, and/or buy site unseen..


You’ll find a good fit. Just be patient and find a good agent. I’m a RE agent in Miami and happy to help or provide guidance prior to you making the jump. Send me a DM 😁 I purchased my place in early 2022 and felt the same but it ended up being the best decision I’ve ever made.


My 1000 sq ft condo comes with a $1k HOA in midtown, it’s was $950 last year.


Yep, the gym, sauna, steam room, hot tubs and I walk slow in the lobby to use up my HOA paid for AC lol

Legent is tasty! This bourbon is finished in red wine and sherry casks, and blended by Suntory Master Blender Shinji Fukuyo - who has experience with truly legendary distilleries Hakushu and Yamazaki. A bourbon with noticeable fruit, caramel, and vanilla elements — and a very good bourbon for $40 at Total Wine. I’d rate it 4 out of 5 stars.

PSA: If you’re sending cold emails to PE info inboxes for potential job ops, I highly recommend including your last name, former employer (if relevant) and LinkedIn.

First name, phone number and brief description is great but if I can’t find you on the internet and validate you have X amount of years of investment experience or are in X MBA class, I’m not going to pass your email along to our HR head for full time roles or internships.
