The seller should have a copy of the HOA rules. Typically, you need to be under contract with the seller before you can get a copy of the HOA rules. If you do not have a signed contract, most HOA's do not want their rules given to people who don't live there.

Since I'm a former realtor and I live in an HOA community, typically most HOA's have the following rules"

No loud noise at night (typically after 10 or 11:00 PM)
Renovations to your home typically requires permission from the HOA and you may need to follow their guidelines.
Dogs must be leashed
Outdoor space typically must be uniform. It would look odd if one homeowner does one thing and a nearby neighbor has a different outdoor yard. You do want the complex to look even and uniform - not some weird ideas.
Additional rules will differ from one community to another depending on amenities, layout, etc.

Collier Heights is located in 30318. Collier Heights is the foremost mid-20th-century African-American suburb in Atlanta and the premier example of a mid-century suburb created for and by African Americans in the country. Its preeminence derives from its unique combination of sheer size, the number and range of its single­ family houses, the quality of its planning, design, construction, and landscaping, its association with an emerging middle and upper-middle class of African-American homebuyers for whom it was built, and the prominent role played by African Americans in all aspects of its development during a time of strict housing segregation in the South and nationally. ... more

Hi Spencer,

Congratulations on your decision to buy your first home together!

Atlanta traffic is becoming a serious issue for homebuyers. As an Atlanta native I can attest to the hair-pulling frustration of spending an hour in the car for a 7 mile commute.

There are areas around Vinings where you can find a home for around $250k, but they go quickly in this seller's market. Have you considered a condo? There are more condos than single family homes for sale at that price point.

If you are first time home buyers, there are several mortgage options to help you with this purchase.

If you are not currently working with an agent I would be glad to assist you with your search.

Best of luck to you both!

Kathy Malloy

Pine Lake is one of the most eclectic cities in the state, including among its residents a number of locally, regionally and nationally known artists in the fields of music (Rick Price of the Georgia Satellites, Elise Witt), fine art (Richard Cecil), sculpture, poetry (Alice Teeter) and prose and other disciplines. The city has been described as one of the most neighborly of cities—new residents are often told that when someone says, "Let me know what I can do to help," in Pine Lake, that's not an empty statement (Atlanta Magazine; Creative Loafing).[full citation needed] The city was reported in Atlanta Magazine's (April 2003) "Best Places to Call Home." ... more
