Here’s a veteran who has no clue how lucky he was when the VA loan he was planing 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 VA 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.
Being turned down to purchase a condo is like becoming an instant lottery winner! It’s the day you did not sign yourself into a prison of rules about your outdoor flowers or your window treatments, the size of your dog or whether you can have a dog, and when and where you can fly the flag of the United States of America to say the least. You will not be the guarantor for payment on the debts and liabilities of the HOA and you will keep your Constitutional Rights.
Mr. Simmons, you have been saved from a nightmare and you just do not know it yet.
I hope this man lives happily in his sister’s basement because he almost signed himself into a life of hell.
Live well, Mr. Simmons and THANK YOU for your service to our country.
On a side note: When the name of the association has the word “Run” in it, do exactly that, RUN like your hair is on fire!
