No Village

In exploring options to live out our retirement years in an apartment community, we decided to look at a complex that we were told about when we atended an event geared toward senior citizens and retirees. The area was just what we were looking for and so with that we took a ride to check it out. The unit we were interested in is called the Morgan, 2 bedromm, 2 bath, 2 Car garage, 1182 Sq.Ft., what more do we really need? Upon entering Derby Village, what we saw was nothing like the pamplet. First there was nobody in the sales office to show us around. That’s when we decided to take a look around for ourselves. Directly behind the community center we saw unfinished units that are for sale. Behind them was a putrid pond and the road back to the rental units was gravel. No landscaping was seen anywhere, in fact between rental units, was a large swamp area. As we drove through the complex, it was clearly not geared for seniors. It would not surprise me one bit if this project goes bust! The search continues!!!

    It’s good that you did your homework before jumping in 😉
