Hi Renee. Absolutely, it's possible! Find a real estate agent to work with and ask them to procure you a copy of the HOA rules/regs because you're interested in a particular neighborhood/development. I do this all the time for my buyers, most HOAs are willing to cooperate and hand over a copy for your review.
GOOD LUCK on your purchase!
