  3. • HOA Dues: $1,928.
    • Price/ft.²: $1,233.
    The place at One Rincon Hill mike mentioned above is a 3Br/3BA at $1,206 per ft.² with HOA dues of $882, so I guess it comes down to your view of the neighborhood and bldg. differences.

  4. One thing to note: I believe the patio would not be included in the square footage calculation. I wonder what the amenities are that they are basing the HOA rate at?

  5. The HOA thing always amazes me.
    I figure that for a SFR, you need to put somewhere between 1-3% of the replacement cost of the building in a rainy-day fund — if you don’t spend it for a few years, you let it bank up and then the new roof/foundation repair/new paint/general pre-emptive maintenance/etc… gets paid for without drama.
    Of course, most people don’t account for this so their places get more and more rundown the longer they live there, and then get shocked by their place coming down around them.
    A ‘high’ HOA, especially in a building that has been running sustainably for a number of years, means that the owners are fully funding its maintenance.

  6. You guys seem to have a hard time with these blueprints..
    Laundry is lower left, next to kitchen across from closet.
    Master bath has tub and shower. Second bath has shower.

  7. Justlooking,
    That’s the way I like answers, thorough and a bit deranged. 🙂
    If I had a FAU, I’d want it to open in the HW.
