Maraiah here-- part of RoseWind Cohousing Port Townsend WA for 28 years, 
followed other communities that long too.

It's really hard to compare assessments across communities, as what is covered 
varies enormously. My community has relatively low assessments-- about $100 a 
month per household -- but we have no expenses for snow or leaf removal, no 
communal property taxes (all paid individually), no community responsibility 
for maintenance of individual homes. We fund reserves, liability insurance, 
landscape maintenance equipment, utilities for the common house (no air 
conditioning cost, less heating cost than northeastern groups, for example), 
and various committee expenses. 

To get any useful information, I think you'll have to be much more specific in 
your questions. What specific expenses, for how many properties, in what 
climate, etc. There are so many variables!
