You bring up a very important issue. We moved into an already functioning co-housing and it did feel very greateful for those who had gone through all the incredible amount and variety of work that went into creating what we moved into. However, putting a value on the work would not be at all easy, to say the least. To some degree, the value exists in the prices of the resulting houses. Since co-housings are relatively rare, those who want to move into one pay a premium based on scarcity. It's anybody's guess if that price difference is "fair."

Our members are doing all this work. It seems inappropriate that residents who buy in in the 4th or 5th year just pay for their unit and their part of what's held in common, and get the benefit of all the founding work at no charge. Do other communities have a way of quantifying that founder contribution, so that founders are compensated in some way - maybe in discount on their unit? thanks, Linda Gluck Ulster County Cohousing (in formation) _________________________________________________________________ Cohousing-L mailing list -- Unsubscribe, archives and other info at: http://www.cohousing.org/cohousing-L/
