Diane, Bob and I are buying a 3-bedroom plus study (apartment). We could have had any size unit we wanted. Our sales have had sort of a checkered history. At one point all our townhouses were sold out. Over time we lost many of those people and our prices went up. So we had empty townhouses. We then sold all of our apartments, and have people on the waiting list who want smaller units. We have had people select one bedroom units to get into cohousing, while they would have preferred a two-bedroom unit. (Eventually as people shuffled around, these folks did end up with the size unit they wanted.) So our data is quite inconclusive. For some of the people who joined or looked at our project, layout was as important as anything. Bob and I really liked being in the building with the common house, as opposed to having to go outside between a townhouse and the common housed. We also wanted a first floor bedroom, thinking ahead about accessibility issues. This wasn't available in our townhouse units. (Their footprint is pretty small, and they're on 3 levels.) -- Mabel :-) mabel [at] twomeeps.com Mabel Liang Cornerstone Village Cohousing North Cambridge, MA http://www.cscoho.org At 10:57 AM 11/30/01 -0500, Diane Simpson wrote: >Hi everyone! >It's a pretty well-known fact that the large units in urban cohousing >communities are the last to sell out.
