So, You're a First Time Home Buyer

June 19, 2014

Few events in life are more exciting than buying your first home. You’re now a member of a community association. Here are a few tips and bits of information to help you make the most of community association living.

 

Your Own Space

 

There’s one important difference between renting and owning a home that you need to keep in mind. Unlike renting, your unit and its upkeep belong entirely to you. You’re responsible for all maintenance for any part of your home that is used only by you or your family. So, when the faucet leaks, the first person to call is your favorite plumber, not the association manager.

 

Common Elements and Assessments

 

The community has a number of common areas and services—like the grounds and the maintenance to keep them attractive and enjoyable. We share these areas and their expenses when we pay our assessments. 

 

Community Rules

 

Because many residents share the common areas, it’s necessary to have a few basic rules so everyone can enjoy the community. If you don’t have a copy of the community rules, please call the manager. 

 

Membership 

 

When you bought your new home, you became a member of our community association. Membership entitles you to attend and observe board meetings and vote in board elections. You may even want to consider running for a board seat yourself. Our community thrives because residents volunteer for committee assignments and eagerly stand for board elections. Get involved—we need you.

 

Please contact us at Red Rock for more information or if you have questions about the association. Welcome!
