Home Owners Association Benefits

Retiring in the Carolina’s has so many advantages that will add to your retirement lifestyle.  There is a common advantage for you in that most all of the Master Planned Communities and Plantations have Home Owners Associations.   These associations that will provide many benefits and services that give you more freedom with your time.

Home Owners Associations are a governing entity that sets up many of the structures for the Master Planned Community and Plantations including:

  • Building and Restoration Guidelines
  • Governing Regulations for community
  • Activities and Amenity Management
  • Maintenance and community upkeep

Now, do not think that your Master Planned Community and Plantation H.O.A is an organization that will be monitoring every move you make in the neighborhood, this is not true!  It is instilled to provide consistency with the design of homes, community upkeep and consistency to operations and activities that actually help increase the value of the neighborhood, value of your home and ultimately adds value to your lifestyle.

Again, we would like to focus on the lifestyle aspect of this topic.  The Home Owners Association will set up most, if not all the activities in your community.   Typically, there  is an annual cost for this benefit and what it delivers.  The fees are broken up into monthly or quarterly payments.  Many retirees do insist on the active retirement lifestyles that Home Owners Association sponsor and endorse.  Such activities will include the Amenity Center, pool, exercise facilities and all associated activities, i.e. yoga, Zumba, cooking clubs, outdoor clubs, and overall the structure for you to focus on discovering new activities and to establish new and lasting friendships. 

When relocating to a new area or a new community from your “hometown,” many worry that they will have difficulty in discovering and meeting new friends.  This is not the case with resources like the Home Owners Association.  These associations are structured to allow you to meet, greet and learn at YOUR PACE, there is never any pressures from this resource to participate.  Typically, your Amenity Center will have a staff managing the activities. They will provide a list of activities and descriptions of all the activities you wish to join.  As we visit each community, Carolina Plantations makes a habit of visiting these resources so you can see firsthand all the benefits at each community.

When you are exploring Real Estate opportunities in Brunswick County with us, we will visit all of the resources in the Home Owners Associations.  This is going to be part of that “Martini Theory” we talk about in your decision in which Master Planned Community and Plantation you will choose to live in.
