If I could add a wrinkle to the interesting discussion: Our group is fully convinced that working with a developer is ultimately more efficient in time and cost. We are very curious and could use advice about our situation: could someone clarify "developer driven" cohousing vs a group forming, finding land, and then "courting" a developer? In the mid-Atlantic east coast, we've assumed we would have to use the latter model because there aren't cohousing developers in our immediate area. So we have been spending large amounts of time and energy on land search and growing the group without much or any input from a developer. There are developers familiar with cohousing in the D.C. area and the Boston area, but we are not aware of any closer to us (Philadelphia area.) Besides clarifying the difference, could anyone give us advice on the advantages and disadvantages of the two models? Doing it ourselves at the moment, we are also still struggling with the question: how much commitment is enough (in membership documents) to consider someone a core member and how much is too much.
