We don’t have a per SF number. We have a 50% variable based on % interest and 
50% equal. The % interest includes SF plus LCEs like balconies, decks, 
backyards (very small), and porches.

The range for 2021 is $435.26 for a 4 bedroom with a full basement to $137 for 
the smallest one bedroom with a den (600 SF?) and no basement space. The fee 

Water, gas, garbage, high speed internet everywhere, pest control, sewer

We each pay our own electricity which is HVAC, hot water, lights, etc.

Approx 50% of the operating budget goes to reserves / savings.
