When Anthem opened in 1999 the fee for the majority of Anthem known as Parkside was $44.00 per month, today the fee for that same area of Parkside is $78.00 per month. The condominiums are $257.63 per month but include the water and trash as well as exterior maintenance. It was important to Del Webb in my opinion to offer a "teaser" rate at their opening, as they had to entice the public to go to the edge of Phoenix. All of the different communities within Anthem have basically had similar dues increases over time and in my expert opinion the increases are minimal and necessary. There is a cap in the HOA documents on exactly how much the fees can be raised in specific time periods and if you would like to review those documents you can visit OnlineAtAnthem.com. The fees will increase over time and the increases are based on actual costs and necessary estimated reserves. I am very active in the Anthem community and volunteer for a couple of the committees, I review the budgets and as a business owner understand the necessity of operating costs and increases. Our fees are so worth our amenities!
