A Frickin’ Genius


Apparently, this picture was not PhotoShopped. In any event, whoever did this photo is a stone-cold genius! If anyone knows the owner of the photo rights please have him or her contact me. It sure looks like a future book cover!

From scams to outright violence to foreclosures and neighborhood collapses across the country, the reader will find this book enormously compelling and a necessary read for every homeowner. Knowledge is self-defense. No homeowner contemplating life in an HOA should neglect reading this book. No HOA board officer should overlook this examination of the pitfalls in HOA management. And no lawyer representing either side in an HOA dispute should gloss over what homeowners are saying or believing about the lawsuit industry.

    It sure looks like typical HOA quality construction to me!

    I had the reverse problem. My driveway dropped to the point I had to use four-wheel drive to get in my garage! The driveway was actually dropped lower than the garage floor. When it rained it just funneled the water right in under the garage floor. Yep, there is nothing finer than living in a maintenance-provided HOA!

    Bizarre. I hope this is in a location without ice and snow! What kind of vehicle could take that steep driveway without bottoming out at the sidewalk?

    Clearly these lots were best-suited for homes designed with garages in the basement under the houses. (raised ranch, two story, split-level..a design that includes stairs) It appears somebody decided they wanted to build ranch style houses but didn’t even have enough design knowledge to know you have to design a structure that is compatible with the land. Since they totally made a mess of the most basic aspect of these places I can only imagine all the other construction issues that will arise.

    Not to mention a few rains and the soil washes out from under the driveways and they collapse. How did this pass inspection?

    And what mortgage company would finance a mess like this? Unfortunately, probably too many.

    I wish we could find out what city this is located in or near!
