Families sometimes get overwhelmed by their HOA rules and covenants, and wish they don’t have to deal with the HOA compliance letters.
But think about it just for a few minutes, HOA’s really offer layers of protection to their members, thanks to these organizations, our property values stay intact, families don’t have to deal with facing neighbors for minor problems like barking dogs, loud neighbor gatherings, illegal parking of vehicles, dangerous pets or suspicious activity, as a member of a HOA (Home Owner Association) you can submit your complaint and let others to handle the situation in a professional and effective manner.
Harmony prevails among neighbors and avoid problem escalation in other more delicate situations like encroachment.
HOA’s take care of common areas, like playground, pool, tennis courts, community parking, sidewalks, trails, landscaping, pest control, some offer trash collection, recycle service, and or fitness facilities to their members, and can obtain volume discounts for those services, that otherwise if you as a homeowner would have to handle couldn’t be as affordable.
Our neighborhood appearance benefits 100% percent, exterior paint, clean and manicured lawns, open access to streets and uniform architectural design in all homes are all good points when trying to sell our properties.
HOA’s keep us honest, when we are all crazy running around and caring for everything except our property values, they remind you, your house needs a hug too, with some fresh paint or repair, and keep you accountable if you neglect or ignore their recommendations.
So don’t get upset or frustrated, HOA’s are a good thing!
