• "We heard about Village Coop in 2010 from my uncle. He was extremely eager to share their experience in Marshalltown and I was convinced it was the way to go. When we heard the coop in Cedar Rapids was being built in the area we're looking for a condo, we decided this was meant for us."

    LeRoy and Fran of Cedar Rapids

  • "The idea of being able to leave home whenever we want without the worry and hassle of arranging a care-taker is a big draw. The maintenance-free living feature takes the worry out of the day to day maintenance our house requires. The additional features of an exercise room, community and club room are things we will use regularly. Our kids see the benefits we’ll enjoy and they will not miss the burden of taking care of our property when we’re gone."

    Rick and Connie of Sioux City

  • "I’m looking forward to the no-maintenance lifestyle and fellowship with neighbors. My family is very supportive of my decision to move and you can’t beat the financial benefits of the Village Cooperative!"

    Denna of Sioux City

  • "The first thing that was important to us was the new lifestyle...carefree, new friends, and community living. When we are gone for the winter, our home will be looked after - of course no mowing or snow shoveling either! Plus, with the security we'll have, we know our safety is taken care of."

    Bill and Jane of Cedar Falls

  • "Living at the Village Cooperative means not having to worry about household repairs.  Whether it is an appliance, electrical or even a plumbing problem, we just call the office!"

    Al and Sue of Fergus Falls

  • "In 2009, John and I got the most devastating news any couple could get. John was diagnosed with Myelodisplastic Disease, for which there is no cure. He was given about 3 years to live. We started thinking about what I would do when he was gone. When we heard about Village Cooperative we decided to investigate further. What we learned convinced me that this would be a good option for me. I signed up and this proved to be all I had hoped for, except that John was not able to join me – he died on July 6th, 2012. I could not have made a better decision. The friendships I have made and the camaraderie we co-op members have is just what I needed. I also love the fact that it will be a very secure home with many wonderful amenities."

    Donna of Cedar Rapids

  • "Our monthly in Mason City is $1,310. After factoring in utility costs and upkeep at our old house, then investing the proceeds from the sales of our house and using that money towards our monthly fee, we are better off by about $150/month in the Coop which will buy you more than a 6-pack!"

    Jack and Ginger of Mason City

  • "Moving to the Village Cooperative, almost two years ago, has been one of the best decisions I have ever made!  I absolutely love living here in this beautiful building, and my home is just what I wanted and needed.  I have made so many good friends here at the Village Cooperative.  It is a wonderful place to live."

    Susan of Marshalltown

  • "We can own our living space which makes it an investment for us as well as a positive lifestyle change. Also, our neighbors are people in our age group who are looking for the same lifestyle change as us!"

    Bob and Sue of Clinton

  • "The cost of the buy-in compared to purchasing a single family home or condo greatly interested us as our cost of living will be reduced. We look forward to losing lawn care, snow removal, and no stairs to climb when doing laundry."

    Robert and Martha of Cedar Falls
