Frequently Asked Questions
What are the condo fees?
Fallswood Condos are amenity rich. Not quite as rich as The Wisconsin directly across the street, but still very nice.
Condo fees range from about $677 a month for a 1-bedroom condo to $877 a month for a 3-bedroom condo. Since there are more 2-bedroom/2-bathroom condos than any other size, an average condo fee would be about $768 a month.
Also, the condo fees include all of the amenities (fitness room, pool, tennis court, grounds maintenance, meeting room, water), plus the overall maintenance of the condo building and the Master Insurance Policy.
Unlike a single family home, you don’t have the repair or replacement costs of roofs, siding, landscaping, and so on. So your “homeowner’s insurance” policy will also cost you less (more like a renter’s policy). Sometimes think condo fees are high. Yet, if they added up all the maintenance on a single family home over 10 years plus pool and gym memberships and saved time, the fees are actually reasonable.
Are utilities included in the condo fees?
SOME — Owners are responsible for electric. Water is included. You can expect much lower electric bills than you would for a single family home.
How much do the condo fees go up annually?
Condo fees have gone up around 2.7% as an average since 2000. As with financial market disclaimers, past average increases do not mean future increases will be the same. This 17-year time frame provides a good gauge for your budgeting purposes.
What are the assigned Schools?
Fallswood Condos feeds into one of the most popular Montgomery County School districts
- Garrett Park Elementary School
- Tilden Middle School
- Walter Johnson High School
While it’s rare that your assigned schools change, if you’re making an investment in a condo (or home) based all or in large part because of the assigned schools, I’d always recommend confirming with Montgomery County Public Schools. This kind of change could significantly change your living situation, and your investment. For example, Tilden Middle School is going to be converted into a high school. We can help you with this information. Just let us know your situation.
Are pets allowed?
YES – 2 pets are allowed per condo. One can be a dog up to 25lbs. fully grown. Plus plenty of areas to walk your dog safely along Executive Boulevard and Nicholson Lane.

Is there Garage Parking?
YES — Underground, secured garage parking conveys with condo purchases. These are deeded space. Some owners do rent out spaces for those looking for additional spaces. This usually runs $125 – $150 a month.
As a Choice Real Estate client, we will definitely verify if the condo you’re interested in has a garage space, and if not, if its possible to secure one. Or in the case of a 2nd space, make arrangements to rent one.
GUEST PARKING TIP: Guests can get a parking pass from the concierge desk. You will have to first push the button at the security gate and let them know the unit you’re visiting. If you’re having many guests, and all the guest parking spaces are full, there metered spots around the corner all along Executive Boulevard. Also, as of December 2017, there’s a large parking lot just a block away that is free on the weekends.
