Our experience suggests that you cannot speed this process up very much. We found that some people would be really enthusiastic and involved when in the first flush of excitment over joining, in some cases offering to pay up their full share almost immediately. In a number of cases these people subsequently dropped out after deciding that some aspect of what we were doing really wasn't quite for them. BUT realising this required time to really get to know the project (and the people). I suspect about two months of involvement is a minimum for people to really know whether they want to join a cohouse. On a related topic,Cascade Cohousing recently sold the last of our 14 shares! What a relief it is not to have sell cohousing anymore. Ian Higginbottom Cascade Cohousing Hig [at] ml.csiro.au
