High Point Estates Neighborhood Newsletter

Spring has sprung!

Greetings Neighbors,

Spring is certainly "in the air" here in High Point Estates as the year 2021 continues to move right along. Even though there has been a lot of positive changes in our world this year such as the availability of Covid-19 Vaccines, we hope all High Point residents continue to stay healthy, happy, and safe by practicing the Six C's which are: Cover up with a mask, Clean your hands, Care for yourself, and avoid Crowds, Close Contact, and Closed spaces. Finally, as working from home becomes the "norm" for many, don't forget to get some fresh air! We have a beautiful neighborhood, which perhaps makes it easy to take a break and go outside for a few minutes. Here are 10 reasons why being outside is important. 😎

Be safe, healthy, and happy,

Monica Croom

High Point Estates Communications Chair

Violation Notices & Modification Requests

From time-to-time, our property management company (Homeside Properties) may issue a violation notice during routine community visits. We recognize that receiving a violation notice may be frustrating for some. However, please remember this is done in the spirit of protecting our home values.

Upon receipt of a violation, homeowners have 30 days to satisfactorily resolve or respond to a violation notice before fines are assessed. If additional time is required to resolve a violation, please provide an estimated resolution date in your response.

Additionally, please note, to preserve a harmonious design, all exterior home modifications require Board approval. Please review our Architectural Guidelines and remember to submit a Modification Request Form prior to beginning any exterior home modifications

Atlanta Beltline Legacy Retention Program

With mounting concerns that revitalization could drive up home appraisals, property appreciation, and higher property taxes, the Legacy Resident Retention Program is a resource for current homeowners to cover the cost of increases in property taxes to prevent displacement. The program assists homeowners with existing property tax bills through tax year 2030. It operates as a grant and does not require participants to pay back any funds received. Fund payment will begin with the 2020 tax year.

Home Values Are Rising ⬆...Let's All Do Our Part! 😃

Current market conditions and real estate trends show home values for High Point Estates are definitely rising! Because of this, we would like to encourage all homeowners to take special care of their homes, especially when it comes to landscaping and exterior maintenance. Our HOA is doing its part to maintain our common areas so that they look nice for both homeowners and potential buyers. With that said, now may be a good time to start thinking about exterior home maintenance projects such as:

• Replacing or repairing mailboxes and/or posts

• Trimming shrubs and bushes

• Pressure washing or Painting your home

• Replacing rotted wood to include homes, decks, fencing, etc. and painting/staining if needed

• Storing all trash containers out of public view

• Mowing lawns regularly and addressing weeds and possible bare spots. Also, please do not blow leaves and grass clippings into the street or storm drains.

Finally for homeowners who are looking to sale, please make an effort to find the right agent who is knowledgeable of our area, and will go above and beyond to market a High Point property.
