I'm looking to relocate to the Charlotte area. I've been looking at homes in Huntersville and at some in Matthews, but it seems like every time I find something I like, it has HOA fees. I'm looking in the $350,000 - $375,000 range, so I don't want HOA fees on top of the mortgage. Does anyone have any suggestions of subdivisions in either of these cities that don't have HOA fees or other cities to look into that don't tend to have a lot of areas with HOA fees?

Most new subdivisions have HOA fees to maintain the common areas and the services they provide to the subdivision. You might have more luck if you look at older subdivision, or ask your Realtor to run a search for you to exclude homes with HOA.

Look at any of the neighborhoods off Carmel Road below Hwy 51.

Thanks for the replies and the private messages. It's been brought to my attention that the HOA fees are not that high. When I see the word HOA, I think of the high fees that we have in CA. Here, cheap HOA fees would be over $100/month, and can go as high as $300/month. I'll have to look into what the actual fees are. I haven't started working with a realtor yet - the 2 I contacted through their website never contacted me...lol.

I pay $675 a year for our house. The townhomes in our subdivision pay more than that but they get extra services. I would definately compare the fee's to what you get. Your mileage will probably vary.

You might consider reading the many threads concerning HOAs here. They may be different from what you are used to in CA
