Everyone wants to get as many amenities as possible when buying a home, but is buying a property that requires you to join a homeowner association the best option? In some states, close to 20 percent of homes belong to homeowner associations. They enforce neighborhood standards and assume responsibilities that local government is unwilling or unable to handle. You’ll learn exactly how they operate and evaluate their pros and cons in this informational guidebook written by C.J. Klug, who has been involved with homeowner associations for more than twenty-five years. Klug examines a wide range of HOA-related topics, including • why HOAs were created and different HOA types; • what factors to consider when deciding whether to join an HOA; • what HOAs do and how they function; • answers to commonly asked questions; • operating guidelines for HOAs. Don’t be among the buyers who fail to realize that joining a homeowner association locks you into a contractual relationship. Whether you are an investor or someone who is ready to live in a new home yourself, it’s imperative to understand Homeowner Associations.
