Newsflash: The Pitch Uncovers Buyer's Remorse Among Kansas City Condo Dwellers

Credit where it's due, reading this litany of 1st world complaints and a satirical response to the promises of Visit KC promotional material is actually a lot of fun. Sadly, I think these folks are serious about their grievances given the big money they wasted on dreams of KCMO good life. Read more:

Midtown condo owners left in the lurch following a rift between developer Wayne Reeder and the Park Reserve HOA

Kate Sweeten Kate Sweeten and her husband, Sam, were promised several luxury amenities when they bought their condo from Park Reserve Condominiums in midtown Kansas City: an indoor pool, a hot tub, a movie theater, and a game room, to name a few.

Developers always win in KCMO. Taxpayers always get the shaft. On the bright side in 10 years the owners might be able to sell for the price they paid for the luxury of living in vibrant, world class KCMO.

I wondered when this was going to hit people. Buying a condo is the worst investment you can make in real estate. Take a look at the people who bought years ago. Most had to sell at the same price they purchased their condo for or took a loss.

One word pretty much sums up KCMO's real estate game.


Fraud

You know how to tell when a real a state agent is lying. They will say anything to move a unit.

Yesterday people on here were like shanty towns will never arrive in KC. The condo market was always fools gold and these will end up being being filled by lower income people who will bring their own set of problems and lifestyles

Through the anonymity of the internet, I'll criticize Wayne Reeder as one of the scummiest (and dangerous) "developers" is KC. Dude will cut corners anywhere and everywhere. It's funny, when he buys a property, nearly as soon as the ink has dried some manner of theft or vandalism occurs necessitating an insurance claim. One property in particular sat for 8 years without even being broken in to. Reeder's company bought it and less than a year later sophisticated thieves removed all the RTU's. Strange. Same with the hospital hill building.

For millennial kid, here's the origination of the "dangerous" statement. No, clearly an 80ish year old dude isn't dangerous. However, the people that work for him, not the big companies, the meth heads that "maintain and guard" the property, would literally stab you for a crack at some Reeder appreciation money.

^^Nah, the boredom factor set in after the second word. Reads as if written by a retard, which in fact it was.

Good honest developers and bad ones. Figure out which before you buy.

You can purchase a very nice 2 bedroom condo in prairie village for less than whats quoted in article. And dues are less. Why live in a war zone?

Condos can be a profitable investment. But like any other kind of home, it all depends on where they are. Buying in a dump like either Kansas City requires belief in Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy.

Rule No. 1: Only buy in places where people want to be. You don't need an MBA to figure that out.
