How much are HOA dues for Ballard Seattle Condos?
And what's included in Ballard condo HOA dues?
The Ballard neighborhood Seattle has lots of different condo styles. From modern construction with the latest bells and whistles to funky older ones that Don Draper would feel right at home in, and from large units with expanisve views of the Puget Sound to small condos on busy roads.
But one thing they all have in common is that they ALL pay monthly Home Owner Association (HOA) dues.
Compared to buying a house, when buying a Ballard condo, or any condo for that matter, you need to do some additional research. Here's a post I previously wrote on The 9 Critical Questions to Ask When Buying a Condo. It's too late to ask after you've closed on the home!
And one of those questions is: "How much are the HOA dues and what do they cover?"
As you will see below, there's a lot of variation in what you might pay from one condo development to another. When looking at condos for sale in Ballard Seattle and calculating your potential monthly mortgage payments make sure to allow for HOA dues.
Here are some numbers on HOA dues for Ballard Seattle condos.
I looked at HOA dues for condos that were either currently for sale, pending or had sold over the past 2 months in the Ballard neighborhood as of the first week of October 2018. I looked at dues for both 1-bedroom and 2-bedroom condos.
For each, I calculated the average monthly HOA dues and the range (low and high). All data were obtained from the NWMLS. There were 28 one-bedroom and 24 two-bedrooms units.
