I think that including information about the cooperative nature of your 
community, including your method of decision-making, expected 
responsibilities and shared benefits is important in all announcements of 
sales. People should not be afraid of discouraging buyers, and it is best to 
encourage the ones who are interested in cooperation over those who may not 
care for it.

Here at Jackson Place Cohousing, we have found that encouraging all 
residents to share announcements of sales with groups they are part of 
outside the community has often been the most effective means of bringing 
interested people to us.

Our community is anticipating a new sale soon, as we are planning on doing 
some remodeling to create a new unit.   I would appreciate any ideas people 
have about how to  market in order to find buyers who are specifically 
looking for cohousing.  Thanks for any suggestions.
