HOA is the worst decision you can make in your life, petty horseshit fights and people trying to take advantage.If you can avoid it, avoid it.
The scum rises to the top. It's the busybodies who will be on the HOA Boards.
HOAs should be limited to grounds and road maintenance and they must document all bidding process, because HOA people get kickbacks from contracts to choose them. Everything beyond basic upkeep should require a 2/3 majority of the residents. Liens should be limited to amounts over $5,000.
Pushy Retirees who want everybody's garage half open during the day, not realizing that half the people in the community have 9 to 5 jobs and aren't going to leave their garage open to any schmuck who wanders in.
Booger says Um, I call bullshit on this one: the "Freedom to Display the American Flag Act of 2005" makes it illegal for an HOA to restrict owners from displaying a U.S. flag.
I live in a centrally located neighborhood in a huge city without an HOA and with no mandatory fees. It is great, and people tend to keep their properties in shape!
My neighbor has a rusty 1950's Ford in his driveway with empty tires. I suggested cinderblocks but that has not yet happened
A light blue truck, ca 1958
Someone may want to restore that. I do not like them, as the 50's trucks had tiny beds despite the bloated cabs and fenders.
pissing off neighbors...
