Continuing my investigation into HOA demographics, I researched the percent of the Arizona population living under a homeowners association government. Surprisingly, that game to 23.4%.
As a very good indicator, although subject to a more refined analysis, data from the Arizona Corporation Commission records showed 7,297 nonprofit corporations with one of the following words in their names: HOA, homeowners association, condominium, condo, property owners association, and community association. Based on industry data from CAI, the following averages were obtained over nine entries, spanning 1970 through 2009:
average residents per HOA: 211
average Units per HOA: 82
average residents per Unit: 2.6
The analysis reveals an estimated 600,069 HOA units and 1,543,067 people living in HOAs, based on a 2009 Arizona population estimate of 6,595,778. That’s 23.4% of the people subject to a second form of local government, the HOA, with their constructive notice constitutions not subject to or approved by the state of Arizona, that deny the constitutional protections of due process and the equal application of the Arizona laws.
