I am about to buy a home in an area with a HOA and have read some about it by looking it up on the net. Wanted some feed back about if you like it or don't, is it that good to have? I will pay cash for my home, but it says if you are late with HOA dues they can put a lien on it and foreclose on it...is that true? Please tell me anything you know from expierence...so I don't make a mistake....I like a nice area and pretty lawns but I don't want someone telling me I can't do this or that, even in my own backyard.

There are definitely good and bad things about living in a HOA community. Just make sure that you request and read the bylaws before you make your decision so that you know upfront what your getting in too. HOA's can put a lien on your house if you fail to pay dues and some have the authority written into the bylaws to levy fines and or injunctions for certain acts- I know of a neighborhood that won't allow your grass to be over a certain height or they levy a daily fine but on the other hand my HOA has very loose bylaws and no authority to fine anyone (which makes enforcement tough). So it's really depends on the how strict the bylaws are and how much authority they have.
