Annual maintenance and condo fees--no inflation adjustment?
The property tax and homeowner's insurance numbers that I enter on the "Primary Home" tab appear to be adjusted yearly for inflation on the "Housing" page of the final report.
By contrast, the "Annual Maintenance and Condo Fees" number is held steady on the report for the duration of home ownership (no matter how long that may be).
Maybe I've misunderstood the purpose of that parameter, but it seems to me that the unstated lack of inflation adjustment for one parameter out of three could be quite misleading for the unwary user. In other words, I fear that treating "Maint and Condo Fees" as nominal dollars in a context where other expenses are adjusted for inflation could leave users with a hard-to-detect underestimate of long-term aggregate expenses. For example, annual fees of $13,000 today would run about $23,000 after 20 years of 3% inflation but the existence of the resulting shortfall might not be obvious to a user viewing summary numbers on a report.
If I've understood the situation properly I hope you'll consider inflating that parameter automatically as you do others of a similar nature--I think it would be a safer default from the point of view of most users. If I'm just confused, though, you have my apologies ;-)
