HOA's are a pain in the @$$. I would find it so difficult to give up so much of my personal freedom over to others to decide. They seem to control everything. Heck, many will not even let you fly the American flag. That is disgusting.

An HOA is a voluntary contract among property owners in a neighborhood. The purpose is to agree to keep your house maintenance up and conform to agreed-upon standards of appearance. The do result in increased property values.

If you don't like the rules imposed by the agreement you can choose not to participate in the HOA by choosing not to buy a house in that neighborhood. Many people make that decision. Others like the fact that the HOA board gets to argue with the lazy neighbor about not mowing the yard, rather than having an eyesore, or them trying to convince the neighbor themselves.

Some boards are run by near-nazis. That what elections are for.

Edit: An HOA cannot prevent you from flying an American flag. That's a violation of many laws. What they can do is prevent you from flying one that's out of scale to the size of your house.

Was in Cape Coral last week to purchase a tow bar from a RVer. As we travelled down the road in the subdivision we definitely saw many rv's parked beside homes and in driveways. Don't know if this is indicative of all Cape Coral since this was our first visit.
