What is an HOA?

A homeowners association is an organization that oversees a community’s governance, business and social affairs by following and enforcing the covenants, collecting and expending necessary funds and building community. HOAs are most common in planned communities and multi-family residential buildings, as well as commercial and retail properties. Those who purchase a home in an HOA must pay certain fees and dues (assessments) as a condition to living in the community.

Each community is different! If you live in a community already managed by an HOALiving company, log into your owner’s portal to see specific information and governing documents for your community.

Shared Costs

All members pay an assessment (a regular fee), often used to maintain common areas and avoid larger, more expensive issues.


Some communities provide amenities that homeowners may not have access to otherwise.


Connections and communication with your neighbors help to build a strong community.

Support your community by participating in activities and addressing areas of need. Your HOA may be looking for extra hands! This is a great way to get acquainted with your community association and to see if a larger commitment is right for you.


Hesitant about becoming a board member but still interested in getting involved? Ask about joining a committee! Opportunities might include event planning, research, surveys, homeowner communication, etc
