Finding a home among no HOA properties is easier than you might think. One of the most important tools you can have on your side is a knowledgeable Realtor. As a real estate professional that specializes in the southeast Valley of Phoenix, I have the extensive insight you need when looking for a home in the Phoenix area, specifically in Queen Creek and San Tan Valley.
While communities that offer an HOA certainly have their advantages, owning no HOA properties can give you more freedom. For example, you do not have to get HOA permission if you want to re-landscape your home or add a water feature to your backyard.
As you may now, many communities with HOAs have strict guidelines on what your yard’s landscaping has to look like. Everything from how many bushes and trees to their type and location. Whereas no HOA properties allow you to completely change your landscaping if you want. You might want to add large rocks or small pebble rocks. You can add any kind of bush, plant, tree or shrub that you’d like. You can mix types and species and truly create a yard that represents you and your family. The point with no HOA properties is that you get to choose what you want to do.
Another example of the freedom you get with no HOA properties is when doing enhancements to your home. You can add a shed to the side of your house, even if it’s visible from the street. You can paint your front door red to make it stand out, and you can even give your whole house a fresh coat of exterior paint in a new hue. Again, not limited to a narrow color palette and the approval of a board.
One of the most common reasons people look for no HOA properties is for parking. Most HOA communities will not even let you park on the street over night in front of your own house. Better yet park your RV/boat/toy hauler on the property. If you have a passion for the outdoors more than likely you will have one or more of those. If you need a place to keep all your outdoor toys than looking for no HOA properties will be a great option for you.
So whether you’re looking for no HOA properties or are open to communities with HOAs, give me a call and let me help. I’ll meet with you and take note of your new home wish list. Then help you find the community that best fits your needs.
