At least $25 master plan fee. In general $100 to $200. Varies wildly by Subdivision.

Note there are also some tracts with SID/LIDs...that can run another $50 to $100 per month. Only some places though.

I spend $56/month on my HOA for the Treo North/South communities. No master plan HOA for mountains edge. We are west of El Capitan which does not require the master plan HOA. We get a community pool/jacuzzi and front yard landscape maintenance. Not a bad deal.

Not in Mountain's Edge. So no fee. No amenities either if they are worth anything. There are places out there with no HOA fees if you like.

Master plan fees never. SID/LIDs generally run 20 years.

Just want to bring up something nobody ever told us before we bought in ME:
You have to pay for the sidewalks and pavement in certain areas. Yes, as unreal as that may seem. Our total was more than $6000. This "loan" is financed at 8% with an early termination penalty. This payment is due twice a year and is paid through our escrow account. It adds a lot to our monthly payment.

This was totally undisclosed before buying.

Bet it was disclosed. Someplace in that pile of paper you received you will find a SID/LID disclosure. I would also think there was a document committing you to pay the SID/LID. The SID/LID however runs with the house so you would need to pay it regardless of whether you agreed or not. SID/LIDs also appear in the preliminary Title Report which you should have received.

If you used an agent and were not informed of the SID/LID I would take the agent to the Board and try and get your money back. That is a no no.

If you represented yourself...well that is what happens.
