Santa Fe Vistas - Mesquite NV - neighborhoods with NO HOA fees

By
Real Estate Agent with ERA - Mesquite NV Homes For Sale Mesquite NV Realtor

Santa Fe Vistas is one of several Mesquite NV neighborhoods with no HOA fees.  On the north east side of town and almost to the Arizona border you will find several small subdivisions with no Home Owner Associations.

That's right - no Hoa fees - kind of unusual around here.  Most new or newer homes in Clark County have a Home Owners Association of some kind -  fees vary from as low as $26 per month up to almost $400 per month and may include some utilities and maintenance of the homes and yard.

The CCRs - Covenants, Codes, and Restrictions included with the property also vary within each subdivision.  One might have very few restrictions - another might be very restrictive with rules and regulations that might even include how long you can leave your garage door open.

Being part of a Home Owner Association in Mesquite NV can have advantages.  If they take care of the yard, you don't have to - you might only want to live here part time, and you don't have to worry about your home while you are not here.  Some HOAs include everything, from water and garbage fees, to structural insurance.

But if you want to paint your home whatever color you like or plant corn, you might want a home in a community without a Home Owner Association.

Santa Fe Vistas Mesquite NV No HOA neighborhoods

Santa Fe Vistas subdivision in Mesquite NV has no homeowner's association and no HOA fees.

Yet the neighborhoods are well maintained and the yards look great, partly due to Mesquite city codes which do not allow garbage, junked cars or overgrown yards.

One way to get away from yard work in the hot summers is to use desert landscaping and it is difficult to tell whether a green lawn is growing or faux grass.

Some are so lush and green, you have to reach down and try to pull out some blades to be able to tell if it is real.  Look at this beautiful back yard and see what I mean!  This yard is actually very low maintenance.

 

Homes in Santa Fe Vistas usually range from about 1600 to 2200 sq feet and vary in price from approximately $200,000 to $400,000 - one listing with over 4000 sq ft and a pool is about $500,000.  Many of these homes have great views of the Canyons Golf Course and of the Arizona mountains.

Howdy there Virginia

I sure believe no one has left you a comment yet, on such a will written post about the community of Santa Fe Vistas. I'm not a real big fan of homeowner associations. If I was going to live right in a community, Santa Fe Vistas, sure sounds like a real good pick to me.

Thank you, for a real fine post to read and comment on.

Do most of the neighborhoods here have HOAs? We have a few here, but it sounds like you have more that do than don't.

Todd - I recently heard that at least 82% of new and newish homes in Clark County have HOA fees.  That actually sounds low to me.  Most homes in Mesquite are less than 10 years old, so yes, Mesquite has a lot of HOAs.  Some folks don't like that, they want No Hoas - they want to be able to do whatever they want - although Mesquite itself is strict, no junk cars sitting around, strict zoning codes, fencing minimums and maximums, no soliciting (door knocking or leaving stuff on the door.)

Homeowner Associations have advantages, too, keeps the neighbors from painting their house striped purple, requires yard maintanance and other 'keeping the neighborhood nice stuff'.  Also restrictions on add ons and upgrades, like you can't build a barn or even an oversized Gazebo.

Annie - No, sorry - the house in the picture above is not for rent - it will be for sale eventually.  You must be talking about the rental property in the link above, houses for rent that is a nice home too, with a 3 car garage and no HOA fees also - but in a different neighborhood in Mesquite -:)
