In addition to the advantages that landlords receive for smokefree properties, HOAs also can benefit from:
Increased Property Values The smell of smoke in a unit can make it harder to sell and reduce the price people are willing to pay for a unit, which can affect the price of all the other units in the association. Also, if someone is moving because of exposure to secondhand smoke, it will likely need to be disclosed to potential buyers, which can also reduce the salability of a unit.
Reduced Homeowner Complaints Boards and management companies are busy enough with maintenance and ongoing issues. Eliminating a source of complaints from homeowners by having clear guidelines about smoking can be a real plus.
