But, I wouldn't live in a HOA neighborhood if you gave me the house.
I keep my yard, house and vehicles up but do it on my time and terms. If my neighbor wants to live like a slob, there are city and county ordinances that address certain things. If they want to have a purple house with polka dotted shades, I could care less as long as they keep it clean. Good fences make good neighbors.
