Benefits of Cooperative Living

  • NO LANDLORD – Residents in a Cooperative do not own their homes. However, they are not renters either. Instead they own a share of the Cooperative, which entitles them to live in one of the Cooperative’s houses or apartments.
  • NO STRESS – The Cooperative entity is responsible for major repairs such as replacing roofs, installing new windows, major leaks, back-ups, snow removal, and lawn maintenance.
  • YOUR VOICE – Cooperative members get the opportunity to vote for the Board of Directors and have input on the policies and activities of the Cooperative.
  • TAX DEDUCTIONS – A portion of the mortgage interest and real estate taxes that a member pays is tax deductible.

A membership,
a neighborhood,
a community within a community,
a means to quality housing
at an affordable price.
