Kew Gardens Condos: Breaking Down the HOA Fees

It's a great time to find real estate deals throughout Queens, and Kew Gardens condos are among our frontrunners! Did you know that you can score a two-bedroom condo for less than $300,000 in Kew Gardens this winter? That's sure to put a smile on any urban homebuyer's face!

When we gently remind you about condo HOA fees, don't let your smile turn south. HOA fees are a part of low-maintenance living and worth the extra expense (as long as your budget agrees).

Before you part with your hard-earned money, we're going to give you the lowdown on what those mysterious HOA fees cover. Remember: This is a general list. If you are looking at specific Kew Gardens condos, you'll want to verify their amenities and fees directly with the HOA board.

HOA Fees: What You Might Get in Return

  • Security. Given their urban surroundings, many Kew Gardens condos provide some type of security system to their residents. They might utilize a doorman, on-site cameras or intercoms to give their residents extra assurance. An important note: While we recommend that our clients consider security when searching for a home, no HOA can guarantee your safety.
  • Common area maintenance. Hallways, sidewalks and landscaping, oh my! Kew Gardens condos probably have more common areas than you would think. A portion of your HOA fee will go toward cleaning these areas and keeping them in good repair.
  • Recreation facility maintenance. If your condo offers a fitness center or pool, those features will require a little more than basic cleaning and repair. Your HOA might even staff these areas during certain hours for residents' safety and convenience.
  • Parking. If you own a car, you can't beat the convenience of a condo with an assigned parking space! You'll pay a premium for this amenity, but it might be worth it to keep your car secure and close to home.
