Here in Durango, CO, we at San Juan Cohousing are looking for purchasers of about 14 more sites/shares and we're "marketing" not only to folks who can afford to purchase an entire unit, but also folks who would like to go in on a unit for financial or social reasons. Is it very common for non-related people to share the purchase of a home? Who else out there has experience marketing to this constituency? We're looking for the following information: - Floor plans that have one shared kitchen/living area but are designed for two to four (or more) singles and/or couples to have a fairly private suite. (I've seen some excellent examples in Ken Norwood's and Kathleen Smith's book, "Rebuilding Community in America.") - Financing options - qualifying for a mortgage together including clauses about reselling shares, etc. - Social considerations within the household and in the larger cohousing community. - Marketing materials/literature to appeal to this kind of buyer. - Other suggestions/considerations? I'm strongly thinking of sharing the purchase of a home at SJC myself, so I have a vested interest.... Thanks, Mike Mariner For more info on SJC, visit our website at http://www.rmi.net/~ganesh. Durango and Bayfield (closest town) are great places to live -- very beautiful!
