Facebook has lots of HOA, COA and cooperative ads that pop up and most I ignore. This one I could not because it said Village Cooperative a 55+ housing community. And wouldn’t you know Facebook has it blocked so I cannot make any comments. A year or so ago I did comment on some sort of HOA advertising and since then I’ve been blocked from making comments on all things HOA. Coincidence? I think not.
My heart sank. They are building several of these in close proximity to where I live! Who are the poor fools who will fall into this trap? Did they not read the Kansas City Star HOA Hell series that Judy Thomas wrote back in August? Were they on vacation? Were they packing to sell their house and move into this Village Cooperative? Or did they believe the sales pitch and not the journalist?
This is when I wish our advocates had massive amounts of money for advertising to purchase billboards next door to these places warning buyers to run like their hair is on fire!
Read their website. They make it sound like Village Cooperative is as close to heaven as you’ll get on earth. Makes me gag!
