What is something home owners have to deal with that you want to fix?

Many owners buy a home that is in a homeowners association and do not understand what an HOA is.  I would like for this to change and for them to understand that they are the HOA and by buying a home in an HOA, there are certain rules and regulations they need to follow, dues assessments to be paid and that their input matters.

Part of my job is to conduct monthly community inspections, send violation letters to homeowners not in compliance, and to answer questions and concerns of all the members in the HOA. I work closely with the HOA boards and keep them informed of what is going on in their community via reports, emails and phone calls.
