What the buyer, and my wife, where not aware of, and wasn't clearly stated in the closing document, is that all of Green Valley is part of what is called Green Valley Rec, and that when you buy a house in GV, the buyers are responsible for a $3000 transfer fee.

Any agents you are dealing with, should be aware of this, and it should be plainly outlined in your closing statement. For most agents that don't specialize in the GV area, this is not a known caveat of purchasing there, so just make sure to ask your agent, so you are aware of that big transfer fee upon purchase. I believe the yearly dues are like $500 also...I included a link below for reference.

Not all Green Valley homes are part of GVR. The connection to GVR is part of the deed to the home. I do NOT agree with this and I did NOT want to be under the rule of an HOA. I found a home in Green Valley that did not have an HOA, age restrictions, nor any connection to GVR. These are things that you should let your real estate agent be aware of if you do not want them so they can screen for homes that meet your requirements. Many homes have HOA's, age restriction and GVR, but not all.
