In my opinion, I think living in a community where you are told how to keep up your home is outrageous. All this talk about keeping up the value of your home is garbage. Its all about $$$. The Association picks at any little issue that is not perfect in your property and then sure enough, they fine you to death. You might as well be living in a Communist country.

Also you don't have to live there.That's what you pay for for living in a "different" community(development).

Consider moving to Pahrump. The more affluent areas are defined by the numerous disabled vehicles on their lots.

The OP has a point. Many homeowner's associations are poorly run, waste their funds and harass decent homeowners over petty issues. But many HOAs are also extremely effective at keeping the homes looking neat and uniform and in the process protecting property values.

It comes down to individual preference. I wouldn't buy a home in a neighborhood with an HOA. Those who do sign documentation agreeing to the bylaws of the HOA. The OP must have read these documents before signing them. Whining after the fact how they disagree with their HOAs rules won't get any sympathy from me.

Then there are the HOA's that don't do anything for you. They expect you to fix problems yourself, like having a bad neighbor, someones dogs barking nonstop 24/7,etc. If they expect that, then what do they do with our money every month?
I hate hoa's too, but just happen to live in a community with one, just like most of the rest of the valley.
If you dont' want a hoa, move to an older part of town and don't complain when your neighbor stocks his front yard with washers, dryers, tvs, old couches and a car or two on blocks.

HOA's serve a purpose and are one of those necessary evils of life. With all the foreclosed homes in my community I am thankful that we have a HOA to stay on top of the banks in keeping the properties in shape. We have had some "nit picky" complaints against us, horror of horror's we put our trash out the AFTERNOON before trash day, but that's life and you take it in stride.

Hmmm. I can just see my husband and the HOA. Not a pretty picture. I should really fill him in on this. He is one of those people you do not want to be a customer service rep to.
