Greetings!
My family and I plan to relocate to AZ from OH next year and will be purchasing an RV soon. It looks like the majority of neighborhoods have HOA's that prevent RV parking on the property and we aren't interested in parking it in an RV lot. Are there a decent selection of nice, safe neighborhoods without HOA's? We work from home and homeschool our son so we have alot of flexibility on location. We do, however, want to be in close (10-15 min.) proximity to grocery stores and activities for our son.

Thoughts?

You will be looking at an older home and there are many well established neighborhoods without HOA's. But, they typically have larger lots and cost more money. My subdivision is surrounded by houses that are not in an HOA.

Out of curiosity I did a quick perusal of neighborhoods that I know are HOA-free. To say there isn't any inventory is an understatement. But the few I found around my house tended to be horse properties that are north of $600,000.

... As grmi66 said, there is virtually no inventory, and there has been a lot of interest in areas that allow for RV structures, at least in the NW (OV, Marana, Foothills) and West parts of the town with many of my wife's out of town clients. Oro Valley is tough as far as allowing any RV garage structures, but as he mentioned there are pockets there with horse property and such (Moore Road). However, again, as he mentioned you'll be hard pressed to find anything in the sub $600K range, and if you do, you better be ready to put in an offer the same day, and paying with cash....even then, you'll be keeping your fingers crossed. Crazy market here at the moment, and the out of towners are coming in heavy ($$$).

Even the RV storage facilities are full to capacity at the moment, at least the better ones, with waiting lists...

Catalina might be an option, it borders OV and has a bit more availability of "affordable" options.

When I was growing up here, if you went to Catalina, you were probably shooting guns, riding horses, or dirt bikes. Now its literally 10 minutes from the heart of OV.....crazy growth.

@ArniBoy - We must be neighbors. I've heard anecdotally from agents and friends that many of the folks moving out here from California are also bringing all of their toys. So non-HOA areas with 1-5 acres to park your RV, quads and more are a hot commodity. All of the horse properties that I run past that have been for sale the full three years I've lived in the area because they cost $500,000+ have all sold within the past couple of months.

Check out zip code 85749 on the northeast side of town. The entire area is full of suburban ranch for the most part. My parents had a one acre lot and parked their RV for years in the driveway without any issue.

Beautifully stated, Boompa . . .

I have never been a "Huge HOA Fan" . . . However, I fully understand and appreciate their necessity by both the neighbors as well as the local governments agencies.

I have no HOA Where I am. The unwritten law is that you can park them beside the house. My neighbor has a POS that draw rats. I seem to be stuck with him.
