• "Village Cooperative offers a unique opportunity to meet more friends with their feeling of ‘community’. Add to that, no snow or lawn care, zero maintenance and a worry-free lifestyle and you really can’t beat it. The value is incredible!"

    Shari of Sioux City

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

    Rick and Connie of Sioux City

  • "We love the location – close to our friends, our church, shopping and medical facilities. It was time to get out of our large house, yard work and start enjoying our new no-maintenance lifestyle!"

    Mick and JoAnn of Sioux City

  • "Secure living, close to shopping and banking, heated garage with car wash – a brand new home with great amenities and we’re saving money with a better lifestyle. What more could you ask for?"

    Perry and Linda of Sioux City

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

    Denna of Sioux City

  • "We travel several times throughout the year and will enjoy the security of leaving the Village with no cares about mail, papers, plant care, or maintenance while we are gone. I have used my snow blower and shovel very effectively over the years, but now I can let somebody else take care of that for me, and I won’t miss it at all.”"

    Dick and Sharon of Ames

  • "The Co-op makes real sense because you have little or no worries about safety, security, maintenance, etc. I’ve visited other Village Cooperatives and was delighted to find that the residents love their new homes. I really don’t know what more a person could ask for with this lifestyle."

    Bob of Cedar Rapids

  • "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

  • "We heard about Village Cooperative 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 co-op in Cedar Rapids was being built in the area we were looking for a condo, we decided this was meant for us."

    LeRoy and Fran of Cedar Rapids

  • "This is the most affordable option I have seen. I have freedom from worry about indoor and outdoor upkeep, plus the benefits of living in a secure building and belonging to a group of people that will help each other out if needed."

    Anne of Cedar Falls

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

    Robert and Martha of Cedar Falls

  • "My children were so excited for me to live in a secure community. I have enjoyed getting to know my new neighbors. My house was getting to be a lot of work and to go across the icy street for my mail was scary. I couldn't wait to move into my new home!"

    Beverly of Marshalltown

  • "We liked the fact that we won’t have to invest all our money into the Cooperative, leaving us more capital to work with other investments."

    George and Jean of Asbury

  • "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

  • "Each home is just like living in a house but without the work and maintenance... and yet has everything a person could want. The best thing is we came back home and we were pleased about the project in Clinton."

    Frank and Jan of Clinton
