Here’s a veteran who has no clue how lucky he was when the VA loan he was planning to use to purchase a condo did not pan out.
It’s a bit confusing, but it appears the Pheasant Run condo complex in Topeka, Kansas did not meet the criteria of the VA. Somehow, it is being reported that the HOA turned down the purchase due to a VA loan. I’m not exactly sure what went ‘wrong’ but I know this is the best ‘wrong’ Mr. Simmons will ever have in his life.
In an Atlanta Homeowners Association (linked below) screaming and death threats are becoming a common experience. Homeowners are upset that the management company built a gate and is charging the homeowners $135,000. A hundred-and-thirty-five thousand bucks? For a frickin’ gate?
It’s long been my observation that the louder the screams at the HOA meeting, the higher chance there’s some embezzling or raw theft involved. If people are screaming, it’s time for a forensic audit…and a couple of pairs of handcuffs.
It seems some homeowners in the Savanna, Georgia area have their panties-in-a-bunch over what they believe is an illegal kickback scheme between developer DR Horton and the cable company. They’ve filed a lawsuit saying they’re each being cheated out of $100 a month.
Sadly, they won’t win. Homeowners almost never, ever do, especially against giant developers like DR Horton. Nope, the developers have the inside track with local government officials. There’s lots of money that slides back and forth at that level.
Still, you’ve gotta give these homeowners credit for trying.
As many of you know, Arizona’s George Staropoli is one of the pioneers and heroes of our movement. I just wish I had his IQ and his intellect. In the essay linked below he performs surgery on the lie that HOA industry representatives constantly spread through our legislatures. Print it out and place it on the desks of each man and woman in government.
