It just so happens that I'm an attorney and licensed agent in Arizona, and I'd be happy to provide this service for you if you feel it would be helpful. Feel free to contact me at your convenience.
Do you have a specific property that you are inquiring about? I will look it up for you if so. Otherwise, they vary depending upon the property and/or subdivision. A single family home that is in an association can have a lower fee than a townhome as the townhome normally has more being taken care of than the single family home. Areas differ as well. You could have a townhome with a $135 HOA fee, and a similar one in Scottsdale for $285 monthly. Some homes are around $35 to $50 and that does not include much other than common area maintenance and management fees.
Good question. No limits on HOA fees. They vary based on the services provided (roofs, garbage, pool, clubhouse, common area, insurance etc etc). In addition to the fees, there may be special assessments when special repairs are needed. The advantage? You live in a well cared for and consistent area. The buyer must weigh the advantages/dis-advantages.
Your Realtor will be able to give you the information for a property that you are interested in.
May I wish you the best.

Association Fees do vary widely depending on the amenity level and the overall structure. The Associations that provide common area maintenance and not much else tend to start around $50 and run up into the hundreds when you get gated with pools, tennis courts etc. Many of the townhome associations also provide roof and exterior maintenance so depending on your need this may be good or bad.
Arizona does not have any caps on what the Home Owner Association's can charge. The Arizona legislature may see a bill this session that intends to limit the transfer fees they can charge at the time a unit sells.
Let us know if you have any other questions.
