Also go to the building department and ask questions there.
As to HOA's you would likely have to go an older neighborhood as most subdivisions built in the most recetn years have HOA's.
Let me know if you need further assistance, I would love to be of help to you in your home search.
Have a blessed day!

As far as neighborhoods in Prosper, TX without HOA restrictions, you may want to consider Hillside, Valley View, Rhea Mills Estates, Collin Green, Bradford Farms, and Raewood on Preston. All of Prosper geographically qualifies for the USDA loan program, although you would also have to meet the criteria to use this loan. You can learn more about that program, and others, at the link below.
As far as NON-HOA communities there a few, most are older neighborhoods. Your best option would be to find vacant land or build on your own lot.
Below is a link to the neighborhoods and land/lots that do not have HOA's.
We hope this helps.
I'm looking for a list of neighborhoods. I'm familiar with green building, and if I'm going to spend money on a house right now, it will only be for an opportunity to get as close to net zero as I can.
The idea of green is not completely accomplished in most neighborhoods around the metoplex as of today.
Hopefully sooner than later they will develop neighborhoods with - Rain Water Collection, Low Impact Development(Storm Water Management), and Plastic Lumber products...
This will give you an idea of what a green community will look like in the near future,
Your best bet is to locate a piece of land or a community with no deeds and covenants...
We wish you good hunting. If you should need further assistance please feel free to give us a call.
