If you appreciate beautifully landscaped yards and want to maintain property values, then Sedona HOA homes may be the right choice for you. There are many great communities with homeowners associations. In addition to bylaws governing the external appearance of Sedona real estate, many communities have gated access and on-site security. This can bring residents peace of mind, especially if they are more out in the country. People buying a vacation home will especially appreciate having someone present to keep their property safe.
Most Sedona HOA homes have extra amenities, paid for from the association fees residents pay. A community swimming pool, complete with a hot tub and pool deck is a common feature. It’s a great way to meet new people and stay cool in the summer. There will often be fitness facilities, tennis courts, a children’s playground, and barbecue grills as well. Many planned communities have a clubhouse with a regular schedule of events, including movie nights, community garage sales, and potlucks. Some, especially in 55+ communities, will also have lots of clubs that get together to create, play games, or do community service.
Not only does an HOA protect the community from people who lower property values by not maintaining their home, the association can make sure that the community is stable. Most HOAs will have rules in place prohibiting short term rentals, which are defined as lasting less than 30 days. Some will prohibit rentals that are shorter than six months. Short-term rentals are popular with investors, but many homeowners feel like they destabilize the neighborhood. If you do opt for an HOA community, be sure to go over the bylaws carefully. You should also check out the financial footing and make sure common areas are kept up properly.
