What is a co-op?

In a housing co-op, you purchase a “share” of the community and have the sole right to live in your unit. With this comes a smaller down payment, and a monthly co-op fee.

Imagine living next door to your friends, with shared car-free space where you can garden, eat outside, and frolic. When you have visitors, they can stay in the shared guest room, and when you have parties or get-togethers, you can use the common house.
