This Could Be Interesting!

Lots of negativity in the HOA world. But on the other side of the fence there’s an interesting plea which we could actually network into something positive.

Anyone who knows someone in the San Antonio area please pay attention.

The word is that there’s a retired Air Force pilot who’s battling leukemia. The city has threatened to fine him because his grass is too high. There may be some other issues as well. Obviously, his health is preventing him from mowing his yard himself, but a family member who lives elsewhere in the country is trying to find someone or some agency which can help this fellow.

We love our military people. Surely, our network can come up with some ideas to help this gentleman out in his time of need. Email me your contacts and I’ll forward them.

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.

    Why don’t HOAs include a “helping hands” committee to organize neighbors to assist in these situations? That would be far better than encouraging neighbors to report each other’s violations.

    Creating unity and harmony within an HOA would totally go against the money making machines that they are. If neighbors cared for and helped neighbors they would not support the fines, liens, lawsuits, and foreclosures that have turned the HOAs into today’s war zones. The concept must remain as neighbor hating neighbor or the money could easily dry up.

    HOA operations are like divorces. If every couple that decided to divorce was amicable and agreeable with a mutual settlement the divorce attorneys would starve to death. Encouraging a nasty battle where the couple shreds each other over a set of china and electric toothbrushes is how the cash cow produces in the divorce industry. In the HOA industry it’s exactly the same concept except a third party can end up with your home. He doesn’t get it, she doesn’t get it, some group of investors (some could be board members) have a chance at owning your home when the battles rages on to the point the homeowner cannot afford to stay on the battle field.

    Neighbors taking care of neighbors is how it works in non-HOA subdivisions. Why? Because there is no money to be made. In any given situation where there is no money to be made you just don’t find the battles that you find in situations where there is a way to turn those battles into cash cows.
