Furthermore, if you want a yard, then I would suggest you shy away from condos unless by "yard" you mean somewhere you can walk your dogs to let them stretch their legs and got to the bathroom. If you want a large yard then that pretty much dwindles it down even further as you would likely need a single family house because most town houses do not have large yards but small, quaint ones.
If I can be of any more service don't hesitate to click on my face and contact me :)

If you check out 10945 E. Hope Dr Scottsdale on Truila it looks very nice. It's had some updating is a single level townhome with no commons walls, so more like a house. It has a 2 car garage and a nice sized courtyard which would be great for your dogs. The kitchen has been updated with granite counters and SS appliances and the HOA fee's are only $89.30 per month. It has easy access to the 101 freeway and there is lots of shopping and restaurants close by. It's been on the market for 13 days and is priced at $224,000. I live and work in Scottsdale and have been a realtor for 7 years. Let me know if you'd like any more information on this property or any others, I'd be happy to help you in your search. Thanks Vicki Shaw, Realty One Group.
I'm have to help find you your next home.

The price to maintain such standards can be high, and not just in dollars. You may have to do more property maintenance than you are comfortable with, hire help, or contribute to community funds frequently to clean up/paint/repair the buildings. If you need to have a commercial truck at your home, want a large assortment of animals, or various mechanical items in your yard, a community with an HOA and CC&Rs may not be for you.
Older neighborhoods, rural properties, and horse properties are less likely to have HOAs and other use restrictions.
Yes all condos have HOA fees and generally all Townhomes do too. These fees maintain the common areas and the community amenities such as pool, spa, clubhouse and exercise rooms. These amenities vary by project. If you wish to avoid HOA dues, you should consider small single family detached homes and possibly small townhomes projects. The rules for pets varies by community and should be verified before submitting an offer. As a first time buyer your first step should be to contact a mortgage banker or broker to get prequalified.
As a Scottsdale native and experienced real estate professional, I would be happy to assist you in your first home purchase.

Condos do have HOA fees so they can take care of the common areas. Some will be more expensive than others though.
You can't buy an apartment. They are available for lease. They don't have HOA fees.
Condos typically do not have a yard. There are a few that will have a small enclosed area for each unit. Having said that there are a few communities that have a park or dog area in the common area.
Please see below a list of condos in Scottsdale up to $200k:

if you are trying to avoid HOA fees, perhaps a small single family dwelling would be more liking to you, although some of the condo complexes do have minimal HOA fees. If you want a complex with pool, fitness center, etc, you can expect HOA fees around $200/month, but this can vary, this is the mid-range. North Scottsdale is a very large area, there are so many subdivisions and complexes to visit. Would love to help you:) Fees are generally noted on the listing document in the MLS.

Yes! all condos have association fees, associations can be a pain but they need the fees to maintain the community pools, grounds, insurance, they usually include water and trash, roof repair or replacement, parking, salaries, club house, exterior, so they are a must, they do range in the amount of the fees so you might check into the fees before making an offer.Michelle
