Why buy a condo or townhouse when a colorful little village awaits us sans taxes, upkeep, the basic boring beige and the biggest reason of all NO HOA or their ridiculous dues and psycho boards?!
What a smart investor Mr. Blankenship seems to be. He builds these darling small houses on concrete slabs and has the exteriors finished in three weeks. He paints the exteriors beautiful warm colors of pink, green, purple, robin egg blue, and a steel blue. He changed the roof lines so they don’t look like all of our “cookie-cutter” HOA neighborhoods.
Three weeks is all it took for him to rent every one of them on one year leases at $500 per month. And utilities are running around $50 per month.
This concept could be duplicated anywhere. And everybody wins. No apartment. No condo. No Co-op. No HOA.
For the money I’ve lost on my townhouse I could have built this whole village. Geez, if only I could turn back time!
