I think it all depends.  In our case, we calculate fees as 25% per household,
75% per  sq foot, and this is a larger unit.  The range for the community is
pretty wide, can't give the figures off-hand, butmaybe $50-70 up to $270 or
more  - don't quote me, please. I do not have numbers at hand.  There were
discussions earlier on this - lots about formulas.

We have a relatively small number of households (15)  (originally planned 23 or
24) and a large common space in our 1924 building, requiring substantial
reserves.  So, that's the short answer.
