HOAs in Phoenix area allowing short term VR

2 Replies

My husband and I are new to the area and would like to purchase a condo or two for the sole purpose of vacation rentals. We have been told that in this area most HOAs do not allow Vacation rentals/short term and will find owners. We are having trouble finding out HOAs that allow this. Does anyone have knowledge of the situation or resources to steer us in the right direction?

Hi @Amy Gardner

Unfortunately, unless they have their CC&R's online, you'd probably have to call the HOA management company for a copy of the CC&R's or just simply ask them if they allow short term rentals.

Correct most HOA's have a 30 day minimum to rent in Arizona (and most states). Your two solutions:

1. Buy a small single family home with no HOA

2. Have a RE agent help you find a condo where the HOA does not restrict less than 30 day rentals. They do exist in some cases where the complex is old and less than 30-day rentals is not expressly forbidden in the CC&R. Might be able to find a newer one too if its a smaller complex.
