When Tim Sigle and his partner started looking for a Palm Springs house in 2008, they “fell in love” with Movie Colony East — a peaceful neighborhood dotted with mid-century modern and stucco ranch homes, high green hedges and, once a year, artist Kenny Irwin Jr.’s “Robolights” installation.

A landscaper takes care of the lawn at Oasis Country Club in Palm Desert, Thursday, Sept. 10, 2015. “Oasis C.C.” is carved into several hedges on the property.

But one of Sigle’s favorite things is that he doesn’t have to give guests a gate code or pay a monthly homeowners association fee. Movie Colony East isn’t governed by an HOA.

“We fell in love with the neighborhood for the fact that it didn’t have any HOA fees involved… When we were buying, that was a big issue for us,” Sigle said.

He remembers seeing monthly HOA dues as high as $900 per month on homes he looked at and thinking, “What are you getting for that? There’s no way you’re getting that kind of service. I feel like it’s ridiculous.”
