We are a community with 30 households, about 12-15 use the common laundry (others have laundry in their units). We have 3 washers and 3 dryers. In my experience, I hardly ever need to wait for a machine. However with 18 homes, you may want 4 just to be sure. To cut down on laundry grid lock, you might want to put in place a system similar to ours: When people put their loads in the wash, they put up a sign that says, "Please dry on normal (light, heavy, etc.) setting." or "Please do not dry." This way, when the next person comes along, they know what to do with the load in the wash. Nobody minds tossing someone's load into the dryer for them. (Once I tried to put up a sign on one of the dryers that said, "Please fold nicely and deliver to my unit." - haha.)

We are looking at 15 - 18 homes, average size two bedrooms, with an average of 2.7 people in each home (I made that up, I don't know what the average number of people per home will be.). Will three machines be enough, or ...?
