So sorry that hoa's even exist!

I would suggest contacting your city building authority, they tend to keep stats on which areas have these and don't.

You should also check out non-hoa communities' deeds of restrictions and the muni rules/laws.

I own an investment property that has an HOA and it's not caused any problems. And it does a terrific job of maintaining the facilities. Personally, I wouldn't care to own a single family home in an HOA controlled property. I'm old. We managed quite nicely for decades without these things. Not knowing much about them, I can't understand why they are necessary in nearly every development these days. Used to be a decent code enforcement officer could keep the rats out.

Looking for homes in rural areas near Tucson I see many HOA fees of 15 to 25 dollars a month. I don't know what that covers, but I'd hate to think an organization that does that little could have any say over my property. Something I'd have to research. And I'll be looking out for the same as we look in NV.

What part of Nevada are you looking in?

In Reno these zips have a lot of non-HOA homes: 89509, 89503, 89502

On the contrary, in these zips most of the homes are in an HOA: 89521, 89519

Has anyone found online maps that show HOA boundaries? In Washoe County there are a lot of useful maps posted on the county's website but so far I haven't found any that show which properties lie in specific, identified HOAs.

Just get a realtor and tell them what you want and don't want and they will only show you to whatever it is. Why ask on CD?

I will say this. I live in a small gated community with an HOA and it's really been nice to have. And, I don't know if you've seen Summerlin which is a planned community, and all the sub-communities (if that's a word), but I've been kicking myself for a long time because we didn't buy there 25 years ago. It looks pretty much the same now as it did then because of the HOA which protects your property from ID 10 Ts who want to park cars on the lawn, etc.

Drive through some older safe non-HOA, East Central neighborhoods, bounded by Charleston, Boulder Highway, Maryland, and Russell to the South.

Long-term, it's a no brainer, HOA fees have only one way to go: up and up! And, if not, there's potential special assessments.

And try to avoid neighborhoods with their own golf courses, like Summerlin Sun City! Those golf courses are forever in need of pricey water, and interest in golfing continues to decline, and, less revenue for the community.

There's no such thing as a free lunch. If an HOA isn't doing maintenace either some other entity will have to (municipality, homeowner), or maintenance just won't get done.
