It’s no secret: monthly maintenance fees for Big Island condos can get quite high. On-going costs of maintaining a structure built close to the water or maintaining a property with elevators, tennis courts, pools and other amenities (as much as we love them) add up. And that’s in addition to the normal costs of repairing wear and tear on a roof, keeping paint looking fresh and appealing, and keeping the landscaping looking its best.
Of course, when you own a single-family home in a residential neighborhood, you are responsible for ALL the fees for maintenance, repairs and updates and you’re either going to spend your weekends doing that work or paying for someone else to do it for you.
Many who choose the condo route do so, at least in part, for the predictability of having most of their maintenance expenses included in one monthly bill. There’s also the advantage of being able to travel and knowing that the property is being well taken care of.
In North Kona, there are a several fee-simple condo projects that have monthly maintenance fees under $500, including: Seascape Condominium, Hualalai Village, Pines At Kailua-Kona I and II, Alii Cove and Kahaluu Reef. Each of these condo projects offer floor plans with 1,000 sq ft or more of interior living space.
