What is a Homeowners Association

 

Calgary Homeowner's Associations - What are they & what are the benefits?

As a rapidly growing city, Calgary is well known for its vibrant new communities found in all quadrants of the city. Choosing where you want to place roots within the city is a big decision and several important factors place into that ruling. However, one of the most valuable features to look for in a new community is the presence of a Homeowners Association (HOA).

A Homeowners Association serves as the heart of a community – a place where residents can come together to enjoy the space with friends and family. This hub of the community not only provides a vibrant and engaging facility to use, but it also offers a variety of programming and events for all ages to experience. HOA’s operate as a non-profit organization that also places a great emphasis on enhanced community maintenance to ensure your streets, parks and pathways remain beautiful year-round. It is important to note that Homeowners Associations often come with a mandatory fee that all residents in the community have to pay – however this small fee includes complete access to the facilities and covers all programs and services mentioned above.

When looking at the various new communities in Calgary that Cedarglen Homes builds in, one can see that many of the communities developed by Brookfield Residential come with their own HOA. Each of these facilities offer enhanced community maintenance as well some fantastic programming for residents.
