HOA BENEFITS

In an age of hyper busy lives and an increasing desire to spend more time living a life of quality, time with content, and socializing that promises to nourish, condos are becoming more and more sensible. You are not spending time slaving over a massive lawn, worrying about cleaning rain gutters, checking the fence posts. Your time and your mind is free for the exploration of more exciting things. Yes, mowing a lawn can be a zen experience, and composting is a rich experience, but really, as the hand of time marches on and your time becomes ever more precious, ( and your back ever more fragile) might it be time to consider deferring those responsibilities? If you are a new homeowner, you may not have the benefit of understanding home maintenance. I have seen so many homes devalued due to neglect. A home is a living thing and demands great care. Condos on the other hand, lovely, light on the land, and easy to dwell in.

There is a myth that home owners dues are a negative. Here’s what you would pay out of pocket in a modest size home for water, gas and electric: Depending on your temperature settings, anywhere from $140.00-250.00 a month. You would have to pay for waste collection, which is $40-$100 per month depending on the billing cycle where you are. Having the gutters cleared annually another couple hundred dollars, getting the lint out of your dryer vent, $60.00 annually, and then getting your fireplace free of dangerous build up, another $50.00 annually. Now add a gardener for $60-$200 a month, an exterior paint job every 5-7 years, a new roof every 25-30, siding repairs, tree trimming and insurance. Suddenly $412.00 a month, and having no hassle is looking a lot better isn’t it?

You travel, let the worker bees tend to your residence!

GETTING SETTLED

Moving is always traumatic but it is also exciting! You get a chance to reinvent yourself. Cast off your old bad habits, set new goals, organize your spices, get rid of your 1980’s clothes, get an exercise program going in Mother Nature’s gym, your beach! Start fresh and then go celebrate.
