Perhaps the best thing about those rules is that it makes it clear whether or not you're the type of person that should even consider living there.


I agree...the rules are not always a bad thing. Just comes down to the right "fit". Having two children running in and out of the garage all day was going to put me in the poor house with the garage door fines so that was not the neighborhood for me. We still have a "garage door closed" policy in our new neighborhood but, thankfully, no fines attached.

I think there is probably a "keep your clothes on" policy, too, but the whole chicken idea might work when all of those folks who can't read "No Solicitors" come knocking...hmmm...

Garages aren't even enough in some neighborhoods. When we looked for each of our houses, I eliminated entire subdivisions (houses with garages especially) that had lots and lots of cars parked on the streets at 2PM in the afternoon. What I suspected was the garage was already filled with crap that did't fit in the house (read weekly garage sales), and/or there were an awful lot of adult kids living with mom and dad, and the don't have regular jobs (that's why there are too many cars on the streets.) These neighborhoods just were appealing to the investor in me.

That must be a mid-west thing. Out in California, nobody ever parks their car in a garage. That's just not what they're for! It doesn't necessarily mean there's a bunch of crap in the garage--that's just not where we store cars. =)

It's a bad weather thing. Places that have bad winter weather, have garages. Places down south, if you've got an upscale house, have carports. If you've got a down scale house, you have the driveway or the street. If you have a mobile home, you've got the front yard. And there's always the field out back where you can find several other cars that have been "parked" there for a few years.

I never had a house for my car until last year. Now Lil' Honda is spoiled rotten, he has a carport at home and a parking garage for work.

and a Northeast thing, boats are stored in the garage, the cars are in the drives or yards :-)
