is Cooperative Living?
Senior housing cooperatives
are established for those who are 55+ to provide an alternative lifestyle to home ownership.
Different in nature
from a house as this allows you to enjoy more free time! Sell the snow blower and lawn mower - enjoy a heated garage
in the winter - and plenty of activities to stay active and connected. You'll enjoy freedom to do whatever you wanted
to do rather than worry over the house maintenance issues.
Cooperatives are purposeful about creating well-designed, socially
supportive, affordable environments that preserve members' financial resources and enhance their lives at the same time.
Be active. Be social. Travel without worries, or stay at home and be as busy as you choose
Use your talents
in a cooperative to help make it the best it can be. Your life experience is helpful in serving on a committee, the
Board of Directors, or organizing an activity at the Cooperative.
This type of ownership provides an opportunity for members to deduct their portion
of the property taxes and mortgage interest on their income tax, while sharing the load of ownership with in a not-for-profit
organization controlled by the members themselves
Cooperative Living Is Affordable Quality
Purchase one ownership share in the Cooperative, a one-time
cost scaled according to the size of home you select.
Pay a monthly fee which covers your portion of the cooperative's
mortgage, building insurance, real estate taxes, maintenance inside and out, and reserve funding.
Resident owners are responsible for their own
telephone, electricity and if they wish, reserved parking in the heated underground garage.
