Funny, But Only Mildly HOA-Related

This one has been circulating recently. It involves a tiger, a police stop, and a Washington State kid who’s already wise to the ways of his Homeowners Association.

He has won more than 70 national and regional awards for Excellence in Journalism, Creative Writing and community involvement. His new book, "Neighbors At War: the Creepy Case Against Your Homeowners Association," is now available for purchase. In it, he discusses the American homeowners association movement, from its racist origins, to its transformation into a lucrative money machine for the nation's legal industry. From scams to outright violence to foreclosures and neighborhood collapses across the country, the reader will find this book enormously compelling and a necessary read for every homeowner. Knowledge is self-defense. No homeowner contemplating life in an HOA should neglect reading this book. No HOA board officer should overlook this examination of the pitfalls in HOA management. And no lawyer representing either side in an HOA dispute should gloss over what homeowners are saying or believing about the lawsuit industry.

    Too funny. Did you see the teens comment: “Well, it’s probably going to stay there until the HOA tells me I can’t have a tiger on my vehicle in the neighborhood or my parents get fed up with it, we’ll see which one happens first,” he said. ”
    I wonder where the “no tiger provision on cars” would be in the CC&R’s, or By Laws? Lawyers may want to get on this one fast! There may be an outbreak of tiger vehicle roof ornaments in HOAs across the nation!

      Surely, Cynthia, an “unauthorized object” such as a giant stuffed tiger does not fit the nature and character of the HOA community. Why, if the HOA allows such an eyesore, this perceived threat to property values, it will spell doom and gloom for the entire community. (sarcasm alert!)

      Like the young man says, let’s see what happens.

      Thanks for the laugh, Ward!

    The tiger ride was funny but I’m happy to know the young man already knows and understanding the overreaching control of HOAs.

    It’s the younger generations that will stop purchasing in HOAs and condo associations. They listen and learn and will not repeat the real estate mistakes made by their parents and grandparents.
