There is no certain year. But, even if the home is not in a PUD,  there is a possibility the city may impose a HOA fee. Such as, maintaining severe slopes on your land, etc. .... Happy funding, Rudi

In the Oceanside area, HOA fees on detached homes not in a senior community started around 1975, and then became more prevalent with tract homes being built since 1986. For newer homes, you're less likely to find HOA dues in smaller developments, or with custom homes. I like the area around Mesa between College and Santa Fe for having newer homes, large lots, 3 car garages, and no HOA.

I don't prefer hoa's either, who needs more regulations(and payments) in their life? Your Realtor can assist you in finding a property that's right for you that is not in an hoa. Many brand new developments are hoa, some are not. best of luck

HOA's are Homeowner's Associations for planned unit developments or condominiums.  Not all homes have HOA's.  All homes have CC & R's, which is Covenants, Conditions & Restrictions, which outline the rules and restrictions for the subject property.  HOA's have nothing to do with the year something was built.

You have to ask on each house, HOA's have been around for a long time, but at least in some areas there still new homes built that are not in HOA's.

I wouldn't buy into one either, to many irritations not to mention the risk of the HOA essentially going bankrupt.

No, I don't believe it works that way.

HOA simply put is the cost to keep up the uniformity of the community's exterior and hence the property value. Imagine if you live next to shabby homes you would face the hassle of dealing the issue and depreciation of your own property. HOA would be the authority handling this before it happens. The cost of HOA depends on the costs generated by the community which many can be efficiently controlled.
