Where I am from we have no cdd fees. Thanks to Floridasunshine, I learned a little about them. My question is, if I look for a community without cdd fees, am I risking buying into a community that will not maintain the standard of those that have it. I don't want to live where there will be alot of renters and the neighborhood starts going downhill. Another thing is, does the cdd fee change every year or is it a set fee? I would like to buy a new home but may look for a resale in a very nice community instead. Where I live, we pay 600.00 per year for HOA and we live in a very nice neighborhood with a pool, clubhouse, parks, and a lake with ducks. So far, I like riverview/valrico and Land o lakes area. I am also checking into port charlotte and sarasota area which seem to be more expensive. I am looking for a family area with more older kids then younger as I have a 16, 12 and 11 year old and where I live now, theres mostly toddlers. I want my kids to have friends.
Thanks for any info.

This sounds a lot like Twin Lakes in Valrico FL ... no CDD's and reclaimed water for use in the yard, keeps your water bill lower, it can make quite a difference. This is the website: http://tlbhoa.org/ You might also want to check in River Hills - higher HOA's due to the fact it's guard gated and also in the Bloomingdale area - south of Bloomingdale Ave, west of Lithia Pinecrest and east of Bell Shoals. All these areas are in Valrico, have good schools and TONS of KIDS.

Thanks for the info! I will check into Valrico. I was on a site www.neighborhoodscout.com where you put in your current zip and area you live and where you want to go and it gives you the 5 closest matching areas and Valrico was on that list. I would prefer not to pay cdd fees but still want to live in a nice area.
Thanks so much for both of your replys.

Plenty of deed restricted communities that enforce the deed restrictions. Why pay CDD to help the developers of the Land.

CDD fees are a scam!!! I am paying $1600.00 a year, 1/2 if for maintaining the pools, tennis courts, clubhouses, etc. the rest to pay off the developers govent loan that helped them build the community in the first place. I would never move into a CDD community again. An HOA yes, a CDD NO!

I agree but some people seem to like them because of the amenities and keeping the neighborhood safe.
