Hitting a housing jackpot in LA?

After reading this article in the NYT about lotteries for housing in New York, I was left wondering if there were any equivalent programs in Los Angeles - I remember reading about something in Santa Monica, but it was apartments to rent, not own. Do such things exist?

Does anyone know anything about Melby Ranch in Colorado?

My parents intend to visit and then buy land at Melby Ranch in Colorado. My parents are lovely, but trusting and dumb about doing research. Is this a scam or terrible investment? The photos on the webpage look nice, and googling for "Melby Ranch problems" and "Melby Ranch complaints" has turned up only one possibly spurious complaint. They're registered with the Better Business Bureau with a clean record, albeit for only six months. So my questions: Does anyone has firsthand knowledge of this place? Is buying land a terrible investment? Are there undisclosed enviornmental problems or the like? Am I being paranoid?
