Patio home communities are popping up all over the country and such homes are a hot commodity. These single family detached homes, usually built on very small lots of ¼ acre or less, are very popular with active lifestyle living homeowners for their no or low maintenance conveniences. This includes communities offering golf, hiking and biking trails, and extensive recreation facilities including indoor and outdoor pools and fitness centers.

Homeowners associations (HOA) usually assume control of mundane chores of mowing, raking, planting, watering, and costly expenditures (i.e. building exterior and common area maintenance) in exchange for monthly fees. Homeowners association fees often include such services as lawn care and the operation of the sprinkler systems eliminating the worry of leaving the property unattended for extended periods of time. The associations also maintain architectural control to protect the integrity of the homes in the community.
