We recently moved into Villa Mirage Condos. The previous posts are dated and both posts appear to be written by same person. The HOA is under new management. The condos are very lovely, some with beautiful views of Pikes Peak. There are some issues, i.e. the road needs repaving within the complex, and this is currently being corrected. The lawsuit mentioned has been settled. The community is actively working together, as of this writing, with the HOA and the bank to find a solution and develop the unfinished lots. The new management liaison is on top of community concerns.
The community has the pool and a great rec. room, huge club house and modest but well selected gym. It's within walking distance of a lovely public park with (public) tennis courts too. My family and I are VERY satisfied here!
I never thought I would made a poor mistake in buying at Villa Mirage Condos, but I did. Its the worst investment I made in my life. The HOA is the worst. The president is always voted in because is a clique between the neighbors. You better not vote against them. They don't do anything but place flowers by the pool area in the summer. The grounds are horrible. The condo is in a lawsuit and they'll not telling the future buyers. We're were told that we would have a gated community but yet there's no gate leaving us unprotected. There's unfinished empty lots all around us making our place looking like empty landfills. The HOA just simply collects our dues of $135 monthly for doing NOTHING!!! Nothing but dead shrubs, bushes. the HOA refuses to replace dead shrubs because of cost. They just collect. Don't buy here!!! Save your money!!! Watch out for Bennett Schlenberger Realtor...They are thieves...Don't buy at Villa Mirage!!! They are lowering the prices to get you to buy their poorly constructed units. The garages are falling apart. The concrete on the sidewalk are cracking in just 3 years. They don't fix anything. There's no such thing as "Maintenance"...I wish I never bought here...I lost my money...Be smart...Buy somewhere ElSE!!
I own a condo here and it's the worst investment I ever made in my life! The neighbors are nosy. The HOA never hold their meetings and lie and never do anything. There's a pending lawsuit against the original construction company so we have empty lots with unfinished buildings..Its supposed to be gated and it's not. No security. But yet they still collect our 130 monthly dues for doing nothing. I have dead bushes, and no trees for the last 3 year years. They continue to lie to buyers and not tell them there's a pending lawsuit so they can sell the empty units. The Property Management just collects and not take care of the grounds. The garages are falling apart and the concrete are already cracking. Please don't buy here. You will be very sorry just like I am!!!
