In this video, I discuss what it was like being on a Home Owner’s Association board. Being on the board has the benefit of knowing what changes are being implemented along with the ability to stop them or push them forward.
It is important to stay aware of what your HOA may be trying to change in your neighborhood. If you’re not careful, you may find yourself paying a higher fee with no recourse other than to write the check. HOA boards can add new features to a neighborhood without the approval homeowners.
The best way out of HOA issues is to purchase a home that does not fall under their jurisdiction. Remember, a Home Owner’s Association is essentially the smallest government and has the same types of powers as a government. Don’t shrug it off and assume nothing will go wrong. Get on the board and keep things smooth.
