HOA... Yeah, I would rather deal with squatters then to have my freedom with something I own restricted. Freedom is something awesome, just saying.

agree with rmodz. i live in a newer development sans HOA. Nver had loud parties, houses painted obnoxious colors, or any of the other "if i don't move into a place with a HOA X will happen!" things. That said there ARE some good HOA but they are FEW and far in between.

Pro Tip: You can still live in a relatively crime free neighborhood without paying HOA fees and dealing with their crap. You talk to a cop or dispatcher. "Is XXX avenue a good neighborhood?"

I almost bit a bullet by buying a house that was awesomely priced, and it "looked" like a good neighborhood. It was actually one of the worst places in this city to live. Looks can be deceiving!

How the HOA operates really has to do with who is in charge of it or who the board members are. My condo before my house had an HOA and my current home has an HOA. Condo HOA was fine until we voted in this retired dude that seemed pretty laid back. Turned out he was a busy body and quickly pissed off just about everyone being all nitpicky. We quickly had him removed and replaced with a more reasonable individual.

Current HOA, was easy going when we first moved in, then I got a notice (after we voted in some new people) that we couldn't park cars in the street or driveway, "That's what the garage is intended for" That didn't last too long. Especially since there was nothing against it in the CC&Rs.

Sorry but I had 5 cars in my household at one time. 2 car garage + 2 in the driveway means one on the street any way you slice it. I quickly found that he was pissed off at his former HOA for being unreasonable and was looking to prove a point.....other than he was a d**k I have no idea what his point was...? Anwyays, all's good now.

Moral of the story, all depends on who is on the board and how the CC&R rules are written. Always read the rules before you buy. If you don't like the rules, don't buy the house. Even then, there will be times it's a PITA. That will pass. I personally liked having parks and walking trails that were maintained for private use. And the fact our hillbilly renter neighbors couldn't BBQ in their front yard or have broken down jalopy's parked in the front yard... They tried but got the Landlord pissed off enough to kick them out when they kept getting cited/complaints.

Yes, some HOAs are reasonable, my sister's old house was in one that the only rules were about how big a house had to be to be there and how much property (It was upper class area, so 1 acre and 3,200sqft minimum size). No other rules.

That one sucks, if you want to work on your car, have a space in the garage so you can work on it, otherwise move. I'm assuming they don't want to see anyone's hood up or tire pressure being checked in the driveway. Gear heads like you have no place there where they all take their cars in to be worked on while they get their hair did.

Yeah... my vote is with the people who say to never ever ever buy a house with an HOA. You get to pay the HOA so they can **** you in the rear, what a bargain. If you "buy" a house with an HOA, you're really just renting the house from the HOA anyway. Unfortunately, OP, you moved into their area under their rules.

There will be snow cones served in hell before I buy in an HOA community.
The only HOA I have to answer to is Mrs. Fastback.

But you signed the paper and they own your miserable *** so quit being a scoff law and stop cobbling your broken schit together in front of God and everybody in the driveway.
