You seem to be a thorough and rational person. So tell me. Did you read the entire HOA agreement before you purchased? Did you know (prior to purchase) that it proscribes the color of basketball backboards depending on neighborhood you live in, the use of reflective paint on the curb, the mulch you may use in your front flower garden, and other trivial issues such as that?
Or is it that you just hit the "high notes" and decided that it would be good to live in the lovely "Hill Country atmosphere" regardless and that you'd just take the fact that you would not be allowed to make trivial choices? Hope your pot of lentils tastes great!
Did you know that you would not be allowed to vote in HOA elections for an indefinite period? How does that go down for you, or do you think that's "too much democracy" to vote in the HOA? Might there then be consideration where you would abdicate your right to vote in other local, state or federal governments?
Small beginnings. Wonder what dear CCR would say about this?
