Setting The HOA Record Straight!

      No Comments on Setting The HOA Record Straight!

I’m really good, aren’t I? I should go into business as a professional psychic! Just a few days ago in a blog post headlined, “Fire That Reporter, Judy Thomas,” I predicted that the powers-that-be would come down like a sledgehammer on the reporter who wrote the fantastic HOA series in The Kansas City Star.

It’s starting, just like I said it would. Linked below is an internal column by the Community Associations Institute, (CAI). It’s so typical of the rank distortions by CAI whenever they refer to homeowners rights advocates. The KC Star’s series was not only incredibly accurate, but it was also fair and balanced. The national Homeowners Association scam is so far out-of-control that a typical reaction to the phrase, ‘homeowners association’ is a couple of raised eyebrows. It’s hard to find a single person who hasn’t heard horror stories about HOA life.

The more you learn about CAI, the more you learn to distrust anything they say. In fact, CAI should really change it’s name. The acronym, ‘CAI,’ sounds too much like ‘lie.’ I’m open to suggestions but I kind of like HOAs-For U. That makes for an even more accurate acronym.
