Association Home Buying & Home Selling ~ Homeowner Association Video

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Preferred Home Brokers 00402040

Whether your home buying or home selling in a homeowner association, it's import to understand the process and how that may vary depending on the laws of your state.

As a buyer of a home, townhome or condo in a planned unit development, i.e. a homeowner association it's important you know and understand your obligations and responsibilities when it comes to the association.

If you're the home seller (and again it depends on the laws/requirements of your state and your contract) you normally provide you buyer with:

  • CC&R'S, the Recorded Covenants, Conditions & Restrictions
  • Association Bylaws & Articles of Incorporation
  • Rules & Regulations of the Association
  • Association Financials
  • Minutes of the Association Meetings

Check out this association home buying and selling video:

As a home buyer you want to review the association financials including the reserves. Also view (if available) the minutes of the monthly meetings. That could give you an overview of what has taken place within the association possibly impacting the value.

Lynda--I am really impressed with all of the videos you do.  Would you consider coming to Indiana to teach me?  No, I didn't think so.  Don't blame you--only got up to 20 degrees here today.  HOA info, CCRs----most sellers do not know and I will admit, I do not always discuss this with sellers.  Your presentation is great!

Hi William ~ Thanks for the nice comment and dropping by my new site, It's a work in progress, but what isn't.

Pat ~ Thank you, I'm working on improving and I know u will do just fine on yours. I'm trying to create a very short series of issues buyers and sellers face during the home buying and selling process. As we explain things at times some things just don't sink in, there is so much to deal with. This way when we discuss it, (or even in advance) I send them a link that way they can view the info again at a time that's good for them.

Lynda, I'm with William you are becoming a master at these videos.  Interesting how different states handle different things.  Here in Texas we have a form where we can request those items or we can mark a spot that says we don't require them.  It is easy to get them from a title company but the associations can charge quite a bit of money to the seller to get them otherwise.
