There is a mistaken belief that a homeowner's association will enhance and protect property values. This little lie has been repeated over and over again since the early days when housing consumers were first being led to HOAs like lambs to the slaughter house.

Will homeowners ever realize that their property values could be adversely affected by the HOA?
