ajgeek: And people BUY INTO IT!
nekom: ajgeek: And people BUY INTO IT!That's the real puzzling part. I don't get what the upshot is.
Diogenes: I don't know what it's like elsewhere, but here in Central Florida (and I believe the majority of the rest of the state) you can't avoid them. You'd never find a house if you won't accept an HOA.Mine is OK. Which is surprising because we have alot of cranky old folks.
Elzar: I've lived in an HOA, it was an outrage! My property value didn't go down, my neighbors weren't allowed to park their broke down cars on the front lawn and I wasn't even able to call the cops on my neighbors for them not blasting music into the wee hours of the morning.
STONECREEK! STONECREEK! STONECREEK! STONECREEK!
nekom: You seriously can't, even in rural areas?

scottydoesntknow: They sure pissed my mom off when she apparently didn't paint her mailbox an "approved color", but she was happy when they made the people down the street re-paint the trim of their house after deciding to go with a godawful pink color.
dahmers love zombie: I like how the news site's very next line after reprinting the "don't use the name Stonecreek" email was:'A powerful tool'LOL.
Diogenes: nekom: You seriously can't, even in rural areas?Consider the state. It's possible, but "rural" means "swamp". And it's probably a biatch to get hooked up to utilities, services, etc.I grew up in the sticks in NJ. That was different.
nekom: ajgeek: And people BUY INTO IT!That's the real puzzling part. I don't get what the upshot is. I suppose if you REALLY loved conformity and wanted to live in a neighborhood where the houses all look the same. Can't really see why it would appeal to anyone. I've got a pickup truck without plates in my yard just for driving around on my property, I've got two septic tanks still in the ground, I cut my grass when the mood strikes me. I wouldn't last a week in an HOA environment.
Citrate1007: HoA's tend to be ran by Tea Party types that get off on their micro-fascist power trips.
gilgigamesh: "You stop this article immediately, because I will sue you just like I sue the people who don't pay their dues," he said.'A powerful tool'Well, I don't know about powerful, but yes, pretty obviously a tool.
Thunderpipes: Citrate1007: HoA's tend to be ran by Tea Party types that get off on their micro-fascist power trips.Umm, no. HOAs are liberals, they want to control everything, tax everything, run everything.Liberals LOVE HOAs. They want to turn the country into a giant HOA.
