I need to compare carrying/maintenance charges of condo properties I am looking at. Which tool should I use for that? Thanks
Price of property is just not enough, and I can't write emails zillion times to zillion agents asking the same basic question. Help!

If you do not want to work with an agent, then do some research online. Check the condos available and compare the maintenance charges of each. You can also call the management company for the condos and see if they can supply you with the information you want

Yes, Miriam, I'm afraid it's going to have to come to that - me personally calling to management companies - instead of sellers doing their job and posting important information about their properties!! I was hoping homes dot com have some tool on their website to _automatically_ run comparison/sorting (like they do with prices or square footage). But since in many profiles this info is not filled out anyway, nothing to compare!

Tony, thanks for answering, but this doesn't help: I need to narrow down my choices before presenting them to an agent. $220K property with $250 monthly charge is interesting for me while $100K property with $750 monthly charge is not.
You need to work with an agent who can find out what the monthly common charges include for each property you are interested in and then stay within your comfort zone when you combine monthly charges, taxes and your mortgage payment. Regards, Tony Murphy 914-471-0992
