I’m wondering why I didn’t make this move earlier. No business tax, income tax and I have property tax exemption up to 25k. The house built as is worth 2-3 million in my current neighborhood. The HOA covers basic maintenance of the landscaping in front of the entrance to the community. No real significance really as it isn’t gated. But I’ll take a $12 HOA any day. I have to wait to see the CC&R to see if there’s any true restrictions but I doubt they will pester me for having trash cans out on a Thursday or that I’m displaying the American flag. I’ve seen other new communities with HOA in the upper 200s and 300s so glad for the $12.
