There are many benefits to living in a community that has an HOA. Realtors agree that property values are more protected when an HOA is involved. The common areas are maintained by professionals and there is increased community pride. Rules and regulations definitely deters nuisance activity and promotes conformity. Homes tend to be aesthetically pleasing and amenities are well maintained such as pools, landscaping, sports courts, walking trails etc.
When you purchase a property in an HOA community you sign documents declaring that you will abide by the HOA rules and regulations and that you will pay the monthly HOA fees. Often you will find a homeowners association in a planned development such as a leased land property, gated communities, condominiums and condo/townhome communities. You won't be able to purchase property in those neighborhoods unless you agree to join the HOA. As a general rule, you will have to pay a fee and be interviewed by the board of directors before they will give purchase approval.
If you are seriously considering buying in condo or a community that has an HOA you should always review the association documents, read the rules and regulations, familiarize yourself with the financial operating budget, check for any pending litigation, and make sure that the reserve fund is sufficient.
