HOA's vary in what they

HOA's vary in what they cover. Our community handles the trash pickup, landscaping of common areas between the units, tennis courts, pools, playgrounds, and non-state maintained parking areas. Ours runs about $70/month which is cheaper than condo fees. However, the roof, windows, siding, deck, gutters - the entire structure is your responsibility. Anticipate these things needing replacement in your budget so it's not a shock. You're also responsible for mowing your yard, trimming your tree, etc. to keep it looking up to "HOA standards". Hope this helps.
