While probably not applicable in this particular instance, please note that the North Carolina Planned Community Act, which applies to most HOA-governed neighborhoods, has a section regarding the regulation of political signs:
Quote:
Notwithstanding any provision in any declaration of covenants, no restriction on the use of land shall be construed to:

(2) Regulate or prohibit the indoor or outdoor display of a political sign by an association member on property owned exclusively by the member, unless:

a. For restrictions registered prior to October 1, 2005, the restriction specifically uses the term "political signs".

b. For restrictions registered on or after October 1, 2005, the restriction shall be written on the first page of the instrument or conveyance in print that is in boldface type, capital letters, and no smaller than the largest print used elsewhere in the instrument or conveyance. The restriction shall be construed to regulate or prohibit the display of political signs only if the restriction specifically states: "THIS DOCUMENT REGULATES OR PROHIBITS THE DISPLAY OF POLITICAL SIGNS".

Even when display of a political sign is permitted under this subdivision, an association (i) may prohibit the display of political signs earlier than 45 days before the day of the election and later than seven days after an election day, and (ii) may regulate the size and number of political signs that may be placed on a member's property if the association's regulation is no more restrictive than any applicable city, town, or county ordinance that regulates the size and number of political signs on residential property. If the local government in which the property is located does not regulate the size and number of political signs on residential property, the association shall permit at least one political sign with the maximum dimensions of 24 inches by 24 inches on a member's property. For the purposes of this subdivision, "political sign" means a sign that attempts to influence the outcome of an election, including supporting or opposing an issue on the election ballot. This subdivision shall apply to owners of property who display political signs on property owned exclusively by them and does not apply to common areas, easements, rights‑of‑way, or other areas owned by others. (2005‑422, s. 8; 2006‑226, s. 15(b).)

Default House for sale

I just saw a for sale sign in the yard. They are asking $130k and it is being "sold as is and in need of some cosmetic updates"

Judging by the homes appearance from the road, I can imagine what the rest of the home looks like.... Not to mention the small water problem that was not noted in the description.. Good luck with that one.

Perhaps they can get $50k for the value of the land and turn it into a parking lot or preserve it as a historic site?

Sure, they can plant a few nice bushes and put in a park bench where people can sit and watch the waterfall that flows down from Maynard.
