Virtually all homes are being built in planned developments and will have an HOA, so older homes likely will be a good start. Also, look at the overhead view of the property in Google Earth and see if it looks like a development. If it does, it likely has an HOA as well. Just some thoughts.
An Realtor should be able to help you with this. First thing I would ask is what area are looking in,are schools important and how about your communte to work. Then go from there. It is an easy search using the MLS.
The best way to do that is to contact a Realtor. I am an expert at seraching the MLS. If you are not being helped by a Realtor I would love the opportunity to assist you.
