If buy a house at Sun City Mesquite, am I obligated to join the Homeowners’ Association? Yes, as a purchaser, you automatically become a member of the Sun City Homeowner’s Association AND the Anthem Mesquite Master Association. What are the Assessments at Mesquite? There are two assessments that are attached to each lot:$99 per month for Sun City Mesquite; $30 per month for the Master Association.These amounts are billed quarterly in advance. What are these assessments paying for?
The Association is a corporation, established to protect, maintain and enhance the property values of the community.
In Mesquite, these assets are significant:
384 acres of common area, including water features, maintained trails, entry monuments and landscaping. In addition, all residential streets are private. That means that the maintenance and insurance of all lighting, curbing, street surfaces, sidewalks, gutters and sewers are the responsibility of the Association.
The Pioneer Community Center and surrounding areas serves our members and their guests. It is a 30,000+ sq. ft. 2-story building housing an indoor pool/spa, meeting rooms, craft rooms, a state-of-the-art fitness center, locker rooms, administrative area, a lounge, billiard room and catering kitchen. On this same parcel is an outdoor pool/spa, a large parking lot, bocce courts, multi-purpose sport courts, tennis courts and an 18-hole putting course. Assessments must cover the costs of operating this entire amenity area, including utilities, insurance, administration (member services), and maintenance.
Included in these fees is access to the Sun City Mesquite Web Portal. Basic Cable TV is also included in your HOA assessments.
Are there any additional fees?
If you purchase a home in one of the gated neighborhood, there will be an additional assessment, with the amount varying according to the level of private amenities in each.Included in this fee is the cost for the gates themselves and any additional common areas within that neighborhood.
The City of Mesquite has made Anthem Mesquite subject to a Special Improvement District (SID), which will obligate each lot between $35 and $65 per month, depending upon Unit location.This charge is for the municipal costs of allowing the entire infrastructure to be built on the site early.There is the option of paying the entire amount at once, with a minimal pre-payment penalty. The City of Mesquite will answer any additional questions about this subject.
Will there be any extra charges for activities?
Most activities within the Community Center will be free: working out in the Fitness Center, swimming, playing billiards, board games/cards, meetings, etc. However, there may be pay-as-you-go charges for certain programs and/or special events. For example, fitness classes that are led by a contracted professional will have a nominal fee; large parties may have a ticket charge, as will outings that incur transportation/ticket charges. Every effort will be made to keep any additional costs to a minimum through sponsorships and business partner contributions.
Tell me about landscaping requirements.
The front yard landscaping will be installed by Del Webb, but will need to be maintained by the homeowner.
The rear yard will be required to have landscaping (at least the minimum, according to the Design Guidelines) installed within 90 days from the close of escrow.
Anything that changes the exterior appearance of the home or lot requires approval by the Architectural Review Committee. There is a one-time fee charged for the ARC review process, collected at closing.
Can my guests use the amenities?
