      In my opinion this will reflect the relationship that the respondents
      have with their community. In other words, since the choice of housing
      and associated community choices are personal decisions, the answer
      that I give will reflect how personal my relationship is with others
      in my community that are looking for housing. 

      That being said, my answer is NONE. 

      I can say that most people I talk to about it <I am quite vocal 
      about my lifestyle choices>, have a concern about giving up 
      privacy <another way to say gaining community>, without any 
      significant price savings. If they have a traditional house, 
      at a traditional price, then they can create community amoung 
      their neighbors. If they have a Co-housing community at a 
      traditional price, they still have to create the community, 
      but their choices about that are more limited, in terms of 
      privacy.The traditional question that occurs is "where's the 
      pay-off, if not in reduced price?"

      Sorry if I co-opted the question to voice my concern, but like 
      I said, I am quite vocal about these things.

                                                Thanks, trey
