Is an HOA Right for You?

Filed under Homeowners on Apr 03,2018 | Tagged in: ,

If you love decorating your home’s exterior to the max for every holiday, living in a community with a homeowner’s association (HOA) might not be the best move for you.  On the other hand, if you’re continually annoyed by the holiday magic that glitters and glows on the home next door, you might appreciate the way an HOA can tame the ornamental overachievers in your neighborhood. An HOA can offer many benefits, and just as many drawbacks, depending on what’s important to you.  You’ll pay a fee to belong, but that may pay off in convenience if the HOA covers lawn mowing and snow shoveling.  An HOA can also settle disputes between neighbors related to loud parties, dogs barking and other noise nuisances. Does your community have a pool or recreational facilities?  Your HOA fees may cover the upkeep of those facilities.  On the downside, HOAs can be costly – and they can restrict anything and everything related to the exterior of your home, from paint colors to putting a basketball hoop in your driveway.  This article from offers a good overview of the pros and cons of an HOA.  

Once you decide what’s right for you, let Vanguard Realty Associates help you find the home and community that suits you perfectly.

"I worked with Donna Brun for the past year to sell my home in Cold Point Manor. The real estate market has not be optimal for sellers. I have to share it was a pleasure to work with Donna. Her commitment and honesty were important to me. She cares about the work she does each day which I find so valuable and refreshing in business today. I would highly recommend Donna Brun to help you with your real estate needs." - Scott Passman
