HOA's and Politics
While walking the dog this morning in my lovely little townhome community I saw this sign in a window. I remember back when the mayoral race was going on and someone put an Ed Oakley sign in their "front yard" - which is really community property -and the HOA made them remove it. You also can't have For Sale signs in your windows or anywhere on the property. I personally could care less if people wanted to put political signs in their windows but I'm sure it's a matter of time before the HOA tells them to remove it. But should they have to? Is this really a matter of maintaining property values? I've always heard that the more an entity tells you what you can and can't do to your property, the less valuable it really is.
