One of the reasons that Atlanta is known as "The Hollywood of the South" arises from the many beautiful and well-manicured homes that are nestled within the landscape. More than a few of the Atlanta homes for sale in the city's finest neighborhoods feature exceptionally maintained lawns, lush parks, and everything from golf courses and swimming pools, to tennis courts and clubhouses.
As you might expect, a fair number of these homes and condos are overseen by homeowners associations (HOAs). There are pros and cons to HOAs, and you should be aware of these before you purchase your next home.
Your HOA will set rules regarding landscaping in the community. These rules govern what kinds of trees, grasses, shrubbery, etc. you can plant. This helps establish a uniform atmosphere that is visually appealing. The HOA will maintain the common areas such as parks and easements, and in many cases, they will also maintain the landscaping on your property, which means you won't have to worry about mowing, trimming, or weeding ever again.
HOAs will also serve as a mediator when your neighbor puts their car up on blocks, plays the radio too loud, or has a dog that won't stop barking into the wee hours of the morning. All you have to do is file a complaint or a request for help, and they will help resolve the problem.
