House Painting: Home Owner's Association Restrictions

Sep 11, 2008
Home owners that live in the rural countryside are pretty much free to paint their home however they please. They don't have to worry about next door neighbors ceaselessly complaining if their home's paint color is too bold or distracting since they are usually just surrounded by trees and livestock. If you live in town, however, things tend to run a little differently and there are often factors to take into account before painting your home or buying a new home.

If you are considering moving into a home in a neighborhood but don't like the prospective home's exterior color, it is probably a good idea to research if there are home owner's association restrictions on colors before buying the home and completing a house painting. Some neighborhoods have very strict rules about house painting colors so if you are not alright with those rules, you should probably consider buying a home in a more relaxed neighborhood with more freedom in house painting. It is also sometimes a good idea to attempt to meet the neighbors in a neighborhood where you are considering buying a home and completing an exterior home painting. Although it can be difficult to get a feel for people when first meeting the, you might be able to get an idea for how they would react to a new, bold house painting color on the home after you buy it. In this situation however, you are the home owner and therefore are free to paint your home how you please, regardless of the opinions of your neighbors. You will just have to decide if you would rather have the bold color of your choice and deal with your neighbor's complaints or settle for a more traditional color to appease those neighbors.

When you do find a home and a neighborhood that you are comfortable with and are ready to proceed with the painting project, you can ask your new neighbors for any recommendations on a paint contractor. You new neighbors should have an idea of an experienced paint contractor in your area that you can hire. This can also be a way to meet the people of your new neighborhood and can be a way to spark new friendships. Once you decide on a paint contractor, they can help you decide on the color that would look best on your new home and can complete the paint job at a professional level that will likely be the envy of your new neighbors.

There are a lot of factors to take into account when buying a new home, including what you want and can do to your exterior home painting color. If you are going to be living in the country, you have much more freedom in a house painting color, but if you are considering a neighborhood with strict exterior home painting color rules, you need to make sure you will be alright with those rules. In the end, just find an area where you feel you can settle in and truly enjoy being a new home owner.
