Home Owner’s Association – a necessary evil?

I received a reply to some listings I sent in response to a query about homes in the Viera, Florida area. The response was simple - “my husband will not live where there is a home owner’s association.”

That is not the first time I have heard that.

On the other hand, I have heard responses where there must be a home owner’s association or I will not consider the house.

Some view a HOA as oppressive body of nosy neighbors. Some view the HOA as a necessary entity to preserve the values of the neighborhood by providing consistent maintenance/architectural standards.

There is always two sides to the HOA issue!

Regardless of your preference, please be aware that in some areas of central Brevard County, Florida (Viera, Suntree), having an HOA is not a choice.

In other areas, such as within the Rockledge, area you have some areas with associations (Augusta Trace, Phillip’s Landing) and others without.

Also, remember…ALL HOME OWNER ASSOCIATIONS ARE NOT CREATED EQUALLY. [Before you purchase in Florida you have three days to review the HOA documents. Do it while you can!]
