I bought my home so it was not in a HOA development so that I have control over my life, not someone who has too much time on their hands and complains about everyone and everything.
The streets are wider so we can park in them if we have to and emergency vehicles can get by. Not so in most neighborhoods with HOA. Our roads are maintained by the city.

I don't see a whole lot of good?

Well hopefully with that much money people would have more pride anyway and the risk of not having an HOA would be less. I doubt you would see very many million $$ homes with chain-linked fences.

You might be surprised.
I know people with plenty of money and zero taste.

I think I would rather see a decent chain linked fence then those wooden 3 post cow fences with the wire stapled to the back of them. They make the area look trashy! Yet most HOA's allow them. I know ours does. $485. Has increased almost every year except this one.

The good generally outweighs the bad with HOAs
I totally agree. However, I have found that sometimes a HOA or a condo assn. can be overtaken by those that want everyting their way and will not react or respond to issues that are of no concern to themselves. For example, I live in a condo (8 units) and everyone paid extra in 2007 to have our gutters cleaned. The unit is two stories high. Anyway, although we paid an extra $1,000 to have the gutters cleaned, they weren't. I asked the association president why it wasn't done and she replied, it just wasn't on my list of things to do. She has the support of the other two members (her friends that tell her what to do). My advise to people is to join yourself so you can be part of the decisions.
