It is a great community with so many choices.... I have lived here since November 1999, and my kids have grown up here too!
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 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.
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.
