 HOA- Home Owners Association

 

I think this group of people are control obsessed and conformists

I cannot stand the concept of an HOA. The ones in my area, want all homes to be a certain color, one weed in your yard and you get a warning. You cannot have anything in your windows but curtains/shades, and even more.

these people are so anal!

I wouldn't live in an HOA community, for all the tea in China.  Way I see, if I am paying the mortgage on the house, I can do whatever the hell I want, as long as I am in compliance with the law.

I wouldn't want to live in an area that has HOA so I don't. It is my home and I should be able to do anything I want with it.

Mine takes our money and does nothing. I pay 123 a month to have my driveway plowed 4 times a year and the grass mowed. RIP OFF!!!!!

No I do not hate them but they are not for everyone. I think if you have issues with enforced rules do not move in an HOA subdivision.

I agree with the other two...I wouldn't live where there was one.

When we get a house it will not be in an area with a hoa.  Heck!  It won't be in a suburb.  I want goats!

Yeah, I feel the same way.

I hate ours because they don't enforce the rules and some people in the neighborhood are trashy. If they fined them like they can the community would look much better.
