33. I bought into a new ranch house development
Sat Jul 16, 2022, 08:17 AM
Jul 2022

two years ago, where I had the option to choose my floor plan and numerous finish choices. I'm now 71. Surprisingly, about 2/3 of the homes that were built in here (mostly older folks, but not exclusively a 55+ community) people elected to build the upstairs bonus suite. I did not. Didn't need the space and didn't want the stairs.

By and large, I'm happy with my house. But the HOA situation is a real PITA. The developer made all kinds of promises--which aren't being honored--and doesn't intend to turn the HOA over to us until he finishes the second phase--which hasn't even started--which means it could be at least three years before we in this first phase are in control of our HOA Board.

Just a caveat. If you are looking at retirement communities, be careful if they are being built in "phases".

I'm assuming you have proof that she was pushed down the stairs? nt MarineCombatEngineer Jul 2022 #1
Of course not. The conspiracy theories are so typical. BlackSkimmer Jul 2022 #13
