Tek_Freek ... Do you own a Single Family Home or an Attached Condo? We are very impressed with Sun City Summerlin and thinking about buying a Condo there but the fees reported on real estate for sale listings vary a lot and can be quite significant, more than $112/month. Also they list an Association Fee and a Master Plan Fee. What is the difference and do you also pay a Master Plan Fee? Thank you for your response, Roy
We have sold a few hundred houses in Sun City Summerlin. The way it works is quite clear. There is nothing other than the HOA fee for SCS single family homes, That will be $112 next year. There is no master plan fee in SCS.

The town homes however are legally condominiums and have a secondary fee that varies from about $150 to $200. per month. That fee however provides much service. Basically all the landscaping and the exterior maintenance of the home. Basically you are responsible for the interior and the courtyard. The rest is taken care of by the secondary HOA.

The deal is not bad by the way. We have done a couple of evaluations for widows who wanted to move to single family to get out of the secondary fee. We find the actual cost of the secondary HOA is around $20 to $40.after you factor the value of the services provided. There is no way the widows can make out by moving. Annoying as you have to talk the client out of paying you for two transactions.

this is a screaming good deal.

Thanks for that. I have no idea of the numbers as we never looked at them. Single family here. Some friends live on Villa Ridge in a town home and a whole section had the houses repainted this last summer. Not sure what that would cost the homeowner, but in this case it was zero additional to their standard fees. Those with grass have the lawns mowed, trees, bushes, etc are taken care of. Those we know who live in that type of home are all happy to pay for the services they receive.

As for what's available, well you saw the list above. We have found that we have to turn things down so we have the amount of free time we want. There are a lot of very active people here unlike the rumors you hear about old people sitting in their houses waiting to die. Average age is probably still above 70 or 75. We are youngins at 69, but have met numerous others our age and younger. The personality (is that the right word?) is changing constantly as a lot of houses are for sale and younger people are moving in.

If there is a downside for us it would be the hilly terrain where we live. I have problems walking and breathing and the slopes suck!! Lower down it's flat(ter).

This place is a lot of fun!

Here is a list of the clubs:

Sun City Summerlin Community Association, Inc. (SCSCAI) Home

Edit: The monthly magazine we get in mail is also online. I don't know who thought this new look was a good idea, but I think it sucks.

$45/ quarter for 150 houses. For that we get landscaping on a couple of narrow strips along the outside of the development and a property manager to collect the fees. The streets are public, and the CC&Rs require architectural approval when a change can be seen from the "Common Areas" which are defined as the narrow strips that aren't visible from 95% of the development. In other words, a poor and mostly toothless HOA, which is what I wanted.

$12/mth for common area maintenance which are walls and various landscape strips in and outside the community. Streets and lights are public. Maintenance is fairly poor this year, but wasn't in the past. Part of the fee is supposed to be banked to refresh the landscaping and signage every so many years. Signage got changed but so far landscaping has not been.

We have CC&Rs but there is zero enforcement. The county does address code violations.

I wanted a weak HOA, although I feel that mine could do a little more in terms of code violations and CC&R violations.

Our CC&Rs are nothing dramatic. Things like no rec vehicles, unregistered cars in driveways. Virtually no coverage for aesthetics or property maintenance.

The rental units stick out like a sore thumb community wide. The owner/occupants tend to take decent care of their properties.

Tek_Freek ... Thank you for your reply on the Sun City HOA and Master Plan fees - it now makes sense to us. The condos are really what I would call Duplexes organized together as a condominium project. Do you know how many total condo units there are in Sun City? We live outside of Sparks, Nevada and are planning a trip to Summerlin soon. Although we may not be ready to make a buy decision immediately it looks like periodically there are units available and we are quite impressed with the community and the links on the clubs, etc. Roy

These are what were referred to as agricultural HOAs. In fact it became pretty much impossible to build a development without an HOA unless it ran its streets directly on the section grids. As soon as you walled it you have to make an HOA to maintain the wall and landscaping required by code.

Many of these HOAs had no enforcement capability. Strictly collect the money to maintain walls and landscaping.
