    Can you imagine the heads exploding if the argument used to decimate mandatory union dues was used against an HOA in a court case?
    After all, if it's illegal to force an employee to pay union dues and join a union, then it should also be illegal to force a homeowner to join an HOA and pay HOA fees.

    Those of us who want to keep our property values higher will stay in neighborhoods where our neighbors can't paint their houses with zebra stripes.
    Rest assured, it won't be an issue. I'd rather find a cave to live in.

    I presume it's a function of where and how we are raised, as this dictates what seems "normal."

    Yep, I agree. Makes sense.

    HOA's are a trip. You really need to read the rules before you buy, and I personally try to get a feel for how strict they are from local realtors and (if possible) residents. That's served me pretty well. We also attend meetings every once in awhile.

    I have seen a guy get the crap fined out of him for painting his house a non-approved color and refusing to repaint for over a year. I'm sure that guy could have moved his flag somewhere slightly different and it wouldn't have been an issue.

    Um - probably not. I was raised very poor, in what could only be considered run-down shacks most of the time. I'd never heard of an HOA when I was a kid, so it wouldn't be natural to assume that I would gravitate toward a community with an HOA.

    I have no problem with people doing their own thing, so long as it doesn't affect my property value. When you start doing stupid **** like painting your house with zebra stripes, you are going to affect my property value, so maybe it's best you do live in a cave.

    HOAs are like miniature tin-pot dictatorships. You couldn't pay me to live in a neighborhood ruled by a HOA.

    Ghettos should have HOA's to make sure property values stay down
