But to answer your question, the people in this area are great, but if you want to live in peace without the Sundance HOA threatening, and harrasing you with fines I suggest you look somewhere else.
I loved living in Buckeye and I will move back out there again but I will NOT live in an HOA area I will find an older home. Good Luck....
Security is also a joke. They drive by so fast (one time) and they come around every so often...(not enough) they dont pay attention to whats going on. If they drove a little slower maybe they'd see the fire in the park!
They're letting ANYONE live in Sundance. When I 1st moved here 1 1/2 yrs ago it was a nice area. Now it's full of ghettolicious people w/ their rap music blaring in their car when they drive by, parties on weekends, punk kids bullying other kids WAY younger than them and parents not caring at all. You might as well live in South Phoenix!! We are moving out of Buckeye & I cant wait!! You can get a house just as cheap a lot closer to civilization! Oh and when the wind blows it reeks like cow poo! DONT MOVE TO BUCKEYE!!
My suggestion is to gather your community together and regain control over your HOA. Go to the meetings and demand answers from the board. If they cannot provide the answers and change needed, then the board needs to be removed and/or replaced by competent owners that will force the change. Many of the HOA's were hurt financially during the lapse in the economy and use this as an excuse to extract more monies from their residents under the guise of fines or penalties. However, they must prove that the violation is legitimate and provide proof in the form of pictures and documentation. If they cannot, the fine is void. Secondly, there is procedure that must be followed to add a lien to your home, and many courts are not supporting these liens from HOA's.
Sundance is a huge community and encompasses quite a bit more than just the local neighborhoods, so the processes may vary a little, however, they cannot fine a person for a car parked in front of your home that is not yours. The community does not own the streets, the city does. You should be able to take those fines to the justice court and have them all dismissed. Secondly, if the car is continually in front the home, the owner of the home can call the city and have it removed at the car owners expense. Unless there is a regulation that Sundance negotiated with the city on overnight street parking, the HOA or management company has no control over public roads.
Buckeye is a great place to live, do not let the HOA's scare you away, just do your due diligence and investigate your community before you move in. Check with residents that live there, and don't limit yourself to one subdivision. Buckeye is a big place and there are plenty of options out there.
Campanella is the idiot i spoke to on three different occasions until I threatened to hire an ATTY.
The realtors that keep telling you about reading the rule book are full of it.....
To get the information you request, your agent should have given you a copy of the buyer advisory, which is a 9-12 page booklet that tells you where to go online to get this information. If you did not use a buyer's agent to buy your home, then ask the seller's agent for a copy of it. It's also possible that the department of real estate website has this booklet to download.
