Get Rid Of The Elderly!

      No Comments on Get Rid Of The Elderly!

Believe it or not, those are the marching orders in many Homeowners Associations. Communities with young people are very popular among prospective home buyers. It’s rare that a young family will seek out neighborhoods with a lot of elderly people. Thus, HOA boards will use every trick in the book to get rid of members of the Old F-rts Club. Instead of trying to work with an older homeowner to get dues collected, many just fine, lien and foreclose.

The commentary linked below is a tragic one. But we hear it time and time again. Welcome to HOA Amerika.

Hey, Sweetie, Let’s Buy A Condo

Condo, co-op, duplex. Growing numbers of people are moving into Homeowners Associations with approximately ZERO knowledge of what they are and how dangerous they can be.

It’s been tough getting the media’s attention, but the movement to wake American homeowners up seems to be gaining momentum. Every little bit helps, including the article linked below.

It’s unsettling how so many tens of millions of people have just blithely wandered into the Homeowners Association experience without thinking. And so many people think they’re getting such a deal by being one of the first to believe the developer’s promises and move in.

Hoo, boy. A number of prospective homeowners bought condos in a residential skyscraper under development in San Francisco. The developer just didn’t tell them all the relative facts; that one side of the building has sunk sixteen inches into the ground and the building is tilting.

Wow!

Run Like Your Hair Is On Fire From Village Cooperative

guest blog by Nila Ridings

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.

When An HOA Goes Broke

Ah yes, believe all you want that your Homeowners Association protects the value of your property. But you’re spitting into the wind. All these years you’ve believe a falsehood spread by an industry that will NEVER be in the business of protecting your home value. This industry believes in the Almighty Dollar, no matter how it’s obtained.

The Pine Ridge HOA in Bushkill, Pennsylvania is a perfect example. A wave of non-dues-paying owners combined with a huge number of foreclosures has pulled this neighborhood right to the brink of bankruptcy. They’re struggling to find an answer. The answer is…there is no answer. You thought you were buying a retirement home? You ended up with a piece of Florida swamp land. Valueless. You believed the lie. You discovered what those of us in the Homeowners Rights movement have been warning you about.
