Determine the Correct HOA
If planning to buy a home here, be sure to verify exactly which HOA is associated with a particular home. In this community it can be tricky for anyone to make this determination, including your agent! Double check with the seller BEFORE making an offer to buy. Then, check again early in the escrow process. The costs for the HOA in one neighborhood could be dramatically different than another and sometimes HOA fees can be a bit hefty.

Rainbow Glen Amenities

The Rainbow Glen community is a little different than some planned communities. Instead of one homeowner’s association for all the neighborhoods, Rainbow Glen is split up into a number of different HOA’s. Due to the subdivision boundaries, determining which HOA goes with which home has been an ongoing source of confusion for new buyers and their realtors. Putting that aside, the most important common denominators is, the entire area is beautiful, well maintained, peaceful and serene.

Typical Amenities
Depending on which homeowners association, amenities might include pools, spas, playgrounds, basketball courts, tennis courts and more. Also, ALL residents enjoy easy access to the Santa Clarita trail systems at the north edge on the community.
