If you are looking at properties and wonder what these HOA fees are and what they cover you are not alone. Home Owner Association fees are very prevalent here at the beach. If you are looking for a second home or an investment property HOA’s can be a great thing. Also if you are someone who doesn’t like yard work or fixing things. Each Home Owner Association maintains each property differently , however some take care of everything from the sheet rock out meaning the entire exterior of your property is maintained by them and you don’t have to lift a finger. For instance some communities in Myrtle Beach like Antigua have homes that all look alike. They pressure wash the homes for you, trim the hedges, cut the grass, maintain the common areas, etc. Myrtle Pointe in Plantation Point has an HOA that includes, basic cable, water, trash pick up, exterior maintenance, common areas, pool, clubhouse and wireless internet. Be sure to ask your agent what the monthly fees are, have their been any previous assessments, are new assessments coming up, what does the HOA fee cover , etc. Here are Dargan Real Estate we are here to answer any questions you have.
