Hi Kristen, Our biggest bump in membership came after our project landed on the front page of the Seattle Times Real Estate section. At the time there were 6 core households. We then made the HUGE mistake of closing membership because we were overwhelmed by the response - maybe 15 households put down cash in about 2 weeks. (Be careful what you wish for.) After that people trickled in (and out) and we had a hard time filling the last 2-3 units. There was still one empty unit after everyone moved in. At one time we hoped to have 30+ units with several one bedroom units. We found that people who wanted 1Bs couldn't afford what they would cost to build - kitchens & baths will be your biggest expense. We ended up with no 1Bs and 27 total units. We're urban.

I'm trying to research WHEN members join groups. I've heard anecdotally that there are big bumps in membership after major milestones such as land acquisition, permitting, and start of construction. Doe anyone have any hard data for their community? I'm most interested in these benchmarks: Got site control- ________ members Five months after site control, after completing programming - ______ members Start of construction drawings- ________ members Project permitted - ________ members Start of construction - _________ members How many units did you plan to have at the very beginning? How many were actually designed and built? Thank you!
