You'll likely not find a broker commenting on this topic because our duty is to serve the public interest with the facts and not opinions of others. You might find some non brokers to comment on the matter. If you would really like to get some information you could send the residents a letter asking for their experiences with the HOA, you can get the list of addresses (public information) from any title company for a small fee. You could ask to attend their Association meetings and you might meet owners there, and request the minutes of past meetings to see what is discussed. I'm guessing you won't get any formal opinion from them, but you could certainly call Hindman Sanchez Law Firm and ask them how you might further research the HOA; they specialize in HOA law and issues here in the Denver markets and are a firm that most everyone I've ever asked have referred me to on matters of HOA. They have a blog you can subscribe to for posts and alerts regarding new HOA law and regulations, it's a hot topic currently and there will be new rules coming in the next 12-24 months I believe surrounding HOAs.
