I am sure there are, because not all people want to live in a community with an association. Some of the HOA fees can be really expensive while others are only around 200 per year. If you would like me to set you up on property watch so everything that meets your search criteria will be emailed to you along with details and pictures email or give me a call.

Avoiding the CDD fees will be much easier to do, however. Look towards the traditional neighborhoods without the amenity centers and you'll find the same new homes without the CDD fees.
If the concern is over the additional cost, there are HOAs with very low costs. I am selling my newer home and my neighborhood has only a $220/yr HOA fee. For that fee, our 3 lakes are maintained, fountain, community signage, landscaping and landscape lighting, tot lot, advertising for our yearly community garage sale and many other details. The HOA keeps a cohesiveness look to the neighborhood without being intrusive, there is still the freedom to create a personal look. For the money, I really don't have any complaints.
There are many neighborhoods in my area of 32246 that have only HOA fees. Here is a link to my home, it was built by the same builder who builds in the CDD neighborhoods (same floor plan and all):
It depends what you're looking for. Some builders are building homes on individual lots they are buying all over the city, so they would be in areas that don't have HOA's. What is your reasoning for not wanting an HOA? If you find one that is very reasonable, sometimes they are good having, since they keep the property values up, by not letting your neighbor build some obstruction or paint their home pink!?
And CDD fees can be high, but they are not in every area.
LEt me know if you need any extra help.
