So, you either live in a house with an HOA, or live in an apartment with even worse rules.
I bought a house in Seffner in Dec 2009. No HOA. It can be done, you just need to look at older neighborhoods.

Our HOA here is a tad over $1K a year.

We complain about it a ton but it doesnt seem to do any good.

such is life.. If we could find a nice 10 acre plot that would still have quick access to the roads and was outside the city limits so I could have my own private range, I would.

I'm not sure, but I'd rather take my chances with police showing up in 10+ minutes than getting checked on the ice...

So the Nazis did survive and decided to gather inside a new organisation called Home Owners Asociation?

The part I like about it is our free gym, multiple pools, water park, lake stocked with fish and regular free community events. A lot of HoA's really do not offer anything at all except you paying for their right to tell you what to do. I'm quite happy with our $75 a month HoA.
That's what my wife and I pay a month, we have none of the aforementioned amenities! We do however, have some very nice covered play places for the kids! But other than that, we pay to have HOA be aesthetics police, which isnt too bad, btw. Just keep up with your sh!t!

^^So you guys actually pay them to tell you what you can do and what not, what you can have in your backyard and what not?

Yes. We don't have get a "choice" about paying them. The only way to get out of paying HOA dues is to move to a location that isn't controlled by an HOA. Good luck with that around here, and if you do find a place, you
Have to sit on the floor and eat so the bullets go over your head.

They say you need to reach out and touch someone. Well you've been touched.

Never talk crap about your competition, especially when it comes to business. This will make your client/customer think less of you and your product.

I bought a house in an HOA, it has been okay. Land scaping is done as is snow removal and sanding along with a big clean up in the spring when the ice goes away. There were also no weird rules in the bylaws either.

If your part of an HOA get on the board and make thing the way you want them. I was just elected VP of my HOA a few weeks ago, now I'm the Nazi...
