Are you on the hunt for the perfect home but omitting those with HOA fees?

Today we are revealing the reasons why Homeowner Association fees don't Suck! There are many reasons why homeowner associations (HOA) are beneficial. In a recent poll performed by Zogby they found that 7 out of 10 people who live under owner associations are happy with their communities. Don't be so quick to eliminate shopping for homes with HOA fees, it just might be the perfect fit for you.

HOA's are popular in San Diego and more than 62 million Americans live in an estimated 315,000 association-governed communities. From town-home communities and cooperatives to high-rise condominiums and city-sized, master-planned associations. 

Fall in Love with Your HOA Dues

The Advantages of Having a Homeowner Association

  1. Protect your Homes Value - When homeowners are held to certain standards, it not only keeps the community attractive and somewhat uniform. Your home's value won't be effected by neglect and deterioration. 
  2. Well-maintained Amenities/Increased Amenities - HOA's typically do an outstanding job of maintaining amenities. Manicured common area lawns, freshly painted walls, lighting that works and clubhouse benefits to name a few. Value added amenities include: tennis courts, gym, pools, hot tubs, saunas, sport courts, barbecue areas, neighborhood parks, etc. 
  3. HOA's prevent your neighbor from doing this!
  4. Rules and Regulations - Deter nuisance activity and promote conformity. Communities with HOA's typically restrict your neighbor from parking big RVs or storing unpleasant eye sores on the streets of your neighborhood. 
  5. Community Bonding and Communication - Some HOA's host regular community gatherings which is a great way to get to know your neighbors. The "common area" facilities like the gym or pool act as natural meeting places for you to share with your neighbors.
  6. TLC and Increased Community Pride - Community common areas are cared for by trained professionals where you can be proud to live in an attractive, well-run community.
