Moving to Austin? Do Your Research…
When looking for a new home, there are countless factors to consider. One thing that often gets overlooked during a purchase of your new place is the homeowners association that goes along with it. So before you sign on the dotted line and call your local Austin moving company, it is smart to factor HOAs into your budget, lifestyle, and more.
Member dues of homeowners associations are typically paid monthly, quarterly, or annually. Talk with the seller or realtor to get a clear picture of how much you will need to pay and add it into the cost of your new home.
Associations also establish strict rules about homeownership that usually regulate lawn maintenance, home design, parking, and more. You should carefully review the rules to ensure you and your family can follow.
If you like to be involved in your community or neighborhood, a homeowners association may be the perfect avenue for you. There are often opportunities to volunteer for a committee or serve on the board of directors, which will help you meet neighbors.
