This is a typical cohousing experience. Except that both renters and sellers
at Takoma Village have had good luck with Craig's list. The most recent
selling her unit for the asking price (market rate) in 5 hours.

This is the market so flyers work best. Put them up in food coops, Unitarian
Churches, chiropractors offices, at health food festivals, etc.

interested in.
