Hello,

We are considering a move to Greenville. From everything I have seen it looks wonderful. My husband and I currently live in Maine with one child.

Can anyone give me any information on nice family oriented neighborhoods where they do not have HOA's? We keep our home nice, but don't want to have to follow anyone else's rules. My husband will NOT live somewhere where there is an HOA.

Thanks!

Smile Neighborhoods without HOA's

Can't help you with a specific neighborhood name because I don't know Greenville that well. However, I was just down there two weeks ago checking the place out as a potential place to relocate (retire) next year. Had a realtor drive me all around Greenville, Mauldin, and Simpsonville. Also did some striking out on my own with a road map. I have the same concerns as you about living under the constraints of a HOA. Most of the new or newish homes in Greenville area are in subdivisions. Houses are nice and tidy looking, but all look the same and have HOA's. I did see some nice areas that appealed more to my tastes in the Taylors area of Greenville. This section seems to be the older part of town. Many neighborhoods with each house "not looking the same" with mature landscaping and big trees. Another alternative is looking out of the city limits....saw lots of houses with large lots (half to several acres), but would be farther to shop, hospitals, etc. When I go back, I'm going to check out the older neighborhoods just north and east of the city. Good luck.

you will almost certainly have to live outside of a subdivision. We've been here 27 years and everything developed over that time is run by an HOA. The county does not do much with parks so the neighborhoods do common grounds, pools etc. but they have to levy fees to cover the operating costs. We pay $300+ per year and its mostly money down a rat hole.

Just sold a home in Greer with no HOA; there are definitely neighborhoods around that don't have one; this home was not that old , either; built in the 90's.

There are plenty of neighborhoods without HOA's here. I live in a neighborhood without HOA's in Taylors. The houses are kept up here as well. You will just have to come down and look around to find an area you like. Good luck!

And the OP has posted about moving to NC, Florida and NJ over the last few years. Wonder where she did finally move to?
