I'm writing from Cambridge Cohousing, where we are about to start building (yeah!). Lately, we've been talking a lot about how to deal with a large group of people who want to be on our "waiting list." These are people who can't or won't buy a unit now, but hope to at some point in the future. We don't have a waiting list now, but they seem to assume that we will have one and that their number on it will mean something. Do other cohousing groups have a waiting list for future buyers? If so, how does it work? We will be structured legally as a condo association. I think this means that units will be offered for sale by their owners pretty much the way that any other housing is, and that the highest offer will get the unit. The only purpose of a "waiting list" that I can see is to make it easier for sellers to contact potential buyers. Am I missing something here, or does this sound about right to others who've already been there and done that? Also, some of our members have suggested that we give priority to potential buyers who help us maintain our diverse community. We would also like to offer priority to current members who want to change units within the group. I think that technically this would be discrimination and will be illegal once we change from an LLP to a condo association. Anybody know anything about this? Thanks for any feedback you may be able to offer, Cindy Carpenter ccarpent [at] aol.com
