Well its like taking an add on the web like a picture of a cat going to the vet or something or a picture of food and having it blown up to the size of your house. The ad company most likely will have to survey where you live to see if its a good candidate for advertising. But if you live in an area that allows it and get approved and cant find people to rent your home then you can try advertising on it. After 3 months they will start paying your monthly mortgage bills.

But not every home is subjected to HOAs. Some people like their freedom: Freedom to park cars on the lawns, freedom to paint your house zebra stripes, freedom to erect 100 foot ham radio antennas, freedom to cover your boat in the driveway with a blue tarp, freedom to have foot high grass.

Homes with a HOA are in subdivisions. How would it be cost effective to put an advertisement costing a monthly mortgage fee on a house that only the people within the subdivision would see? Unless the subdivision has 30,000 homes within it and the home is on the main entrance no one would be interested in advertising on it anyway. While sometimes subdivisions are bordered by a major street or highway with enough traffic, even then there are usually tall border fencing, berms or tree lines blocking the view.

I would venture to say that this advertising scheme is more geared towards homes and buildings on major street or highway which are usually not governed by a HOA.

Some people do. Some people elect to move to tracts with HOAa that keep the white trash neighbors in-line.

My old neighborhood in NY was self-policing. We respected each other and were very good neighbors to each other. We respected each other's property values. We also had 1-2 acre lots were we could hid our boat and campers.

All the old timers have either moved out or died off and the new (white trash) residents have completely trashed the place. Its almost unrecognizable now.

That's what I'm talking about! Especially the ham radio towers.

I don't see what's wrong with occasionally parking a car on the lawn or having a boat in the driveway?
