What is a Home Owner’s Association (HOA)?

Featured Image - HOA Meeting

A home owners association (HOA) is an organization that is put together by a real estate developer when planning a new development project. This management organization sets the rules and regulations of a community and is in charge of the upkeep of common areas within a development such as pools or landscaping. 

As a real estate investor HOA fees are something you have to account for in your holding cost estimates and there may be additional regulations you have to follow when rehabbing the property. For example, some HOA’s have rules when it comes to the types of exterior colors that are used when painting a home.

Hello, my name is Ivan Williams. It is my pleasure to serve you, and your family, with all of your real estate needs. I have a passion for Real Estate and for helping my Clients understand all aspects of their real estate transactions. My experiences as a real estate professional, home improvement specialist, real estate investor, and property rehabber gives me a unique perspective that will help me serve you as my Client. Over the years, I have also become an avid student of architecture, home design and construction. One of my most exciting projects was a top to bottom restoration of my Detroit 1929 Art Deco home. As a real estate professional, I have also made it a priority also to help educate buyers and sellers about the major systems of a home. It is my belief that when my clients are knowledgeable, they make better decisions and will ultimately be happier about their real estate transactions. A true measure of a real estate professional is one “who puts clients first”! I love what I do, I love to help people, and I love the Real Estate business! That is why I become not just your real estate professional, but part of the family. My clients are provided with a variety of tools and programs, to make sure their real estate transaction is a smooth one. The secret to helping buyers in exceptional ways is not to just be pro-active. It is about diligence in the approach, and the willingness to do what it take to get the job done. Some of the most effective methods are not fruitful unless they are done over and over without pause, until the customer is satisfied, until the house is sold and closed. Likewise, some of the most effective techniques are those that have not been part of the “traditional” part of real estate sales. Sometime it takes creativity and thinking outside the box to sell or find a home. It is my intent to use everything at my disposal to get the job done. When we meet, I will show you what I do that is different that will save you time in your search for your next home. I am a full time Real Estate Professional that will find the best home and walk you through the process with the least amount of inconvenience. My passion is getting you results, saving you time, and building a friendship in the process. My other professional career my background has been in Information Technology and Project Management. These skills also help me serve my real estate Clients in this modern world. Thank You!
