What Exactly is a Membership Community?

Communities with membership requirements consist of homes or neighborhoods offering exclusive amenities that necessitate a joining fee due to their high maintenance costs. In South Florida, these often include residences centered around a private golf club, granting access primarily to homeowners and, on occasion, a select few non-homeowners.

Costs can be very high depending on the community, but one-time initiation fees between $20,000 and $100,000 are not uncommon.

Annual dues can also be very high, typically between $12,000 and $24,000 annually.

HOA Dues in Florida

Most Florida homeowners have HOA dues since over 65% of homes in Florida are located within HOA communities.

Homeowners Association (HOA) fees are mandatory dues paid by residents of an HOA community. Opting out of these fees is not an option. Depending on the community, these fees may be structured as an initial lump sum payment upon moving in, with subsequent monthly dues, or simply as regular monthly payments.

These fees are also known under various terms such as HOA dues, community service fees, and amenity fees. In addition, some communities may charge both HOA fees and membership fees, particularly in neighborhoods that include a golf course.
