Providing Community

The purchase of a home within a community association creates a new form of living for the owner: Association living. There are several unique components to this form of property ownership:

The association provides community continuity, preserves architectural integrity, and maintains the common property. Properly run, it promotes the community concept and protects property values. Community associations are designed to:

  • Provide business, financial, and governance services
  • Manage the property interests of the owners
  • Develop a sense of community through activities and/or amenity availability

All of those and more are elements of Association living. It works best when the Board collaborates with members to gain consensus on the vision and mission of the community, making for a great environment! With nearly one in three people living in some type of community association and over 38,000 in Washington alone, this form of ownership, lifestyle and community will flourish for many decades to come.
