no offense to you bucfan, but this is another reason to never ever buy in an hoa. how would you like to save a lifetime for your dream home only to have your neighbor tell you what you may or may not build on your property?

problem number 1 in America today and for that matter the rest of the planet: everyone seems to be more interested in minding everyone else's business but their own!

I'd never buy a home without reading/studying the HOA first.

While HOAs can be useful if you are particular about items such as the precise color of your neighbor's house, they are not necessary for more general items like fence repair, truck or rec vehicle parking, chicken coops or cinder blocked cars, items often covered by ordinance enforced (when called upon or noticed) by city code. Even color can be dictated by zoning laws such as in historic districts. So it might be a bit of an exaggeration to assert that non-association housing is license to live without regard for neighbors.

Instead of being so uptight, accept the lifestyle choice. I know the right neighborhood for you.
You would be in your big home or say well enough home your entitled to have, you would be in lets say Gibsonton. Adult store heaven AND neighbors with chickens.. Sounds attractive to me, at least things wouldn't be boring.
you can have your crappy HOAs. I live in an HOA neighborhood now and it is SO DEAD and LIFELESS.

Ok, quoting myself on behalf of someone who wrote "idiotic post" under reputation points. I wouldnt be surprised if it was the guy I replied to LOL.
I think I should start putting chickens in his yard.
