HOAs (homeowner associations) are common in Sequim as they are all over the country, but here’s one difference that you’ll see in rural areas like this. Many HOAs may be authorized in the originating documents (i.e., the developers Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws), but most people don’t move to Sequim to get involved in an HOA run by a dictator who loves to boss people around and raise assessments. This means many HOAs are authorized and exist but don’t actually do anything, and many don’t collect any dues either. Others collect a small annual fee to take care of road maintenance in a small neighborhood. Typical HOA dues can be several hundred a year, which my California clients tell me is nothing compared to what they pay. Road maintenance fees are typically small annual collections, if there are any. I pay $250 a year for road maintenance in my little neighborhood, and I’m happy to do so.
Where you’ll see more annual dues or association fees is with condos. Then you might see $3,000 a year for annual HOA dues for the condo association which takes care of common properties around the units.
