Anyone living in a condominium complex? I am. I should love it, no yard work, two swimming pools that I don't have to maintain myself, two playgrounds for the kids to play on, and a party room at a very reasonable price. Those are just a few things that you would think would make this place a great place to live. Until you meet the board members!! We have a few people on our board that have been on there for twenty plus years and think they own the entire complex. They are spending our money with no real progress being made. To try to make up for their poor spending habits, they are walking around with cameras basically stalking people just waiting for them to leave a toy in the yard and fine them $25 for it. Where does that money go? Surely not to the repairs that need to be done around here. The roads are horrible, cars are being damaged, ankles are being broken, kids bikes are getting flat tires. They do these "bandaid" repair jobs which end up being worse on us than when the potholes were there. Oh and don't even get me started on the increase in monthly fees as well. At the rate we are going, my monthly maintenance fee is going to be more than my mortgage!!
