My husband and I are buying a home in Florissant soon. We currently live in Nebraska and have a HOA in our area. They can be good or bad, depending on your HOA. We specifically asked about our neighborhood having a HOA before we purchased our current home and was told there wasn't one. Well...the area had been set up to have a HOA, but it wasn't operating at the time our home was purchased. Now that is running again, we're bound by the rules. One good thing about HOA's is that if they are run correctly and if the rules are enforced properly, then your property value and the appearance of your neighborhood are more protected than if there were no HOA at all. HOA's bring a "standard" to a neighborhood. On the other hand, if your HOA isn't run correctly, it can be a big pain in the neck that costs money and doesn't do anything to help you or the neighborhood. Like anything, good and bad depending on the individual situation.

I have heard good and bad things about HOAs, but I'll also add that the bad things grossly outweighs the good.
As new homeowners in Florissant we are all for a strong community but never will we support an HOA.
We bought in Florissant to be somewhat more free and able to do what we want with our house/lot, we do not want to seek permits from a 3rd party if we want to expand or change anything to the house or garage.
