It is a great community with so many choices.... I have lived here since November 1999, and my kids have grown up here too!
HOA fees are approximately $235 quarterly in Parkside and $421 in the Country Club. If you're looking at Anthem West or other of the newer areas outside the main portion, the HOA fees vary.
Water is relatively expensive - can run $100 a month - and power will be seasonal, high in the summer ($250 peak) and low in the winter ($35), mostly for AC use - can average $100 over the full year. Your other utilities will vary with what you want (cable, phone etc) - but that covers the major fixed charges beyond your mortgage. Properties taxes are quite low and also not rising, but that will generally be included in your mortgage payment.
I hope that helps. Oh and by the way, I strongly recommend Anthem as a place to live - it's great here. Tons of house for the money, beautiful weather, and a nice family-friendly community.
HOA and Mello Roos taxes are specific to the neighborhood not the city. You would need an address and a Realtor that is part of the areas board to find the specific answers for that property.
