We did have a reserve fund starter and tables, chairs, and dishes and for the 
kitchen, as part of the budget. The reserve fund wasn't huge but $20,000 I 

The advantage of putting them in the development budget was that they were then 
part of our mortgages.

Another question -- how do you determine the amount of the condo fee? After we 
moved in our management company told us we would have to raise our fees 65-70%. 
We found we did have to but it took 3-4 years to get there.
