In February 2007 there was correspondence on this list on the subject "Flip 
Tax." You may want to see the views expressed there. They have some bearing on 
the subject you have raised.

  Hi all,
I'm writing from Sonora Cohousing, Tucson.

Someone in our community is about to sell their house, asking for what
seems like an exorbitant amount of money.
Many of us worry about the fact that as resale prices climb through the 
our community is becoming less and less affordable.

I wonder whether this has been an issue in other communities, and 
there are ideas out there on how to curb the ever existing desire to 
profits on the part of people who leave. (I think that part of the 
sub-text in
all of this is that as there is an insistence that cohousing is 
the default situation is that capitalism reigns. -- But perhaps I'm 
just opening
a can of worms by mentioning this? :))

Awaiting enlightenment,
