A neighborhood's Home Owner's Association (HOA) is in place for a reason. I get many buyers asking specifically to look for houses that are not part of an HOA. I always ask them why.
For the most part, they think HOA's are strict. What is their definition of strict? They just don't want to be told what to do.
Do you want your neighborhood to look like this?
This is one of the reasons there are Home Owner's Associations in place throughout Austin TX and the rest of the country. Who wants to see their neighbor's weekend home? Doesn't this look trashy? There is even a cord coming from the garage to the trailer to charge it.
The funny thing is, this house is part of an HOA. A Home Owner's Association is only as strong as the neighbors allow it to be. Has anyone reported this neighbor? I was in this neighborhood twice this week showing houses and it was there both times. I wonder how long it's been there...
