How can I narrow my search to property NOT managed by an HOA?

It can be vacant property, an older neighborhood, etc.

One way is to simply look at its location. If it is in an area that is a development, country club, or other "planned" layout, it likely has a HOA. If it is a condo, it will have a Condo Association for sure.

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.
Good luck.

I know that Orange and Seminole counties require HOAs in new developments. Do you know how old of a house I should look for to avoid the presence of an HOA?
