Re: Unit selection process

Our situation was a little different because we ended up moving into an 
existing complex. But I do remember that many more people originally wanted 
larger units than could afford them at our outrageous local real estate market. 
We also had many people who asked for 1 bedroom units, who couldn't actually 
afford to live in alone.  We also did some unit shifting after move in (we 
moved to a 3 bedroom, switching with a family that needed a smaller monthly 
payment). So don't get too set on building for the exact make-up of your group- 
there will be turnover.  Also, remember that you may be able to change unit 
after move in as neighbors families grow or shrink, and as people move on. 
Also, it is worth letting people know that unit selection procedures may change 
in response to market conditions- you may decide to give up your prized unit if 
you really have to sell the last units and Family X will only buy if the can 
take a certain unit.  Good luck.
