A lot of people complain about the cost of condo fees and say that is the biggest deterrent from them giving up their single family homes and moving to a condo. However not all condo fees are created equal.  You really must investigate exactly what each condo fee includes and what it doesn't.  Often included are amenities like swimming pool, community spa, fitness room, etc. but what you may not realize is a lot of them also include cable, sometimes internet, building insurance, water, sewer or trash, exterior pest control and much more.  If you add up what you are paying for these items at your current home you may be surprised condo living is actually more affordable than you thought and you gain the advantage of an almost maintenance free lifestyle.  When working with a real estate professional they should be able to fill you in on what is and what is not included.  This great 16th floor condo in Riviera has a ton of amenities and is very affordable for what you get and you simply can not beat the views!!!
