POA Fees Bluffton SC



Steve Wallace Real Estate provides an approximate list of local neighborhood association fees on this webpage. Please do note that fees and neighborhood covenants can change from time to time… Once you’ve found a top home in a top neighborhood, you’ll want to have a chat with the local association or management company to verify fees and ask if there are any other fees you should be aware of in a particular Bluffton, Hilton Head Island or Beaufort SC area neighborhood. Speak to the local POA for actual update to date neighborhood information on fees, assessments as well as neighborhood improvements coming to a particular neighborhood.

According to Wikepedia, the free online encyclopedia, a homeowner association is described in the following way. “In the United States, a homeowner association (HOA) is a corporation formed by a real estate developer for the purpose of marketing, managing, and selling of homes and lots in a residential subdivision. It grants the developer privileged voting rights in governing the association, while allowing the developer to exit financial and legal responsibility of the organization, typically by transferring ownership of the association to the homeowners after selling off a predetermined number of lots. Membership in the homeowner’s association by a residential buyer is typically a condition of purchase; a buyer isn’t given an option to reject it. Most homeowner associations are incorporated, and are subject to state statutes that govern non-profit corporations and homeowner associations. State oversight of homeowner associations is minimal, and varies from state to state. These HOAs are also known as POAs (property owner’s association) and practically every neighborhood in Bluffton has some type of association and POA fee.

While some folks may not appreciate all the covenants of a POA, many are put in place and in many cases they protect and sustain the value in a neighborhood. Have you ever had the experience of a neighbor painting his house black with blue polka dots and letting his lawn become overgrown and weedy? Not that there is anything wrong with those color selections; but, some would say that those types of actions (or lack of action when it comes to maintaining your lawn) could devalue neighboring homes. The POA may have a covenant in place noting home owners must maintain their property and any exterior changes must be approved by the POA. You can learn more about homeowner’s associations online at

Many Bluffton area residents are living their American Dreams inside a community regulated by a property owner’s association (POA), and corresponding covenants, conditions and restrictions (CC&Rs). As a future home buyer in the Beaufort County South Carolina Lowcountry, it’s a good idea to have a general idea of the fees in varying local Bluffton communities. Then, once you’ve found a top home selection in a neighborhood of interest, it’s a very smart idea to have a chat with the local POA in your neighborhood of interest!

POA fees, assessments, capital costs… can change from time to time and your local POA can be your number one source for local neighborhood information that is up to date. Questions to ask your local POA may include: Can you verify the current POA fee in the community? Is the fee expected to increase? Are there any special assessments? Are there any other fees I should be aware of in the community? Is the POA in good financial condition? Also, the POA can be a great source of information for upcoming neighborhood initiatives, general improvements, capital improvements… So, consider asking those aforementioned questions and possibly a variety of other questions to become informed about a particular Bluffton SC neighborhood of interest.
