Special Improvement Districts VS Home Owners Associations

HOA V. SID

One of the more sneaky recurring costs that can get you when buying your first Scottsdale home is that of a Special Improvement District. First, let us give a basic definition.

A SID and/or LID (Limited Improvement District) is a geographic area where owners of real property agree to an additional assessment(s). As opposed to an HOA, moneys may fund public improvements such as infrastructure, community amenities, and more. A good example would be a new highway that helped flow in/out of a master-planned community.

As opposed to HOAs, SIDS and LIDS can typically be paid off. However, homeowners may be penalized for paying their SID/LID off early. The system is greedy for interest.
