Homeowner’s Associations (HOA) that wish to increase the value of the homes within their community should invest in HOA security. A community with uniformed security is more appealing to many new home buyers and investors than those without guards. Plus, both new home buyers and investors will save on homeowner’s insurance.
Home Buyers Look for HOA Security
Many of those in the market for a new home are coming from the inner-city or other high crime areas.The reason they moved to the city originally was to get a better paying job, but now the allure of a higher income has been surpassed by concerns for their family’s safety. Buyers are more willing to pay a higher price for a secure home for their family. A home in a secure community with HOA security offers better protection for its residents. Therefore, the homes within the community are more valuable than similar homes in a neighborhood without security patrols and monitored video surveillance.
Investors Like the Idea of HOA Security
Investors who are looking to buy and rent a home within your community like the idea of a safer investment. Of course, there’s no such thing as a crime-free community; but a community patrolled by roving patrols is much safer than those without surveillance.
Should their property set vacant for a few days or even weeks, the investor will feel better about the risk of vandals or squatters with security onduty. An unprotected vacant home is a magnet for squatters and drug dealers to use as a meeting place out of sight. HOA security will call local law enforcement about any questionable activity.
Discounts on Homeowner’s Insurance
Homes without monitored security are 300 percent more likely to be burglarized or vandalized than those with security. Insurance companies know this and are willing to give homeowners a 20 percent discount on their policy. Therefore, the entire community will have significantly higher property values and lower insurance premiums.
