More rentals in cohousing would increase diversity only if the rents are lower 
than the average market rate. It won’t be if non-resident owners are renting at 
the top rates and won’t or can’t guarantee long term rentals— not 20 years but 
2-5 years.

It would be better if we built units that were designed as rentals, 
particularly for the 20-somethings.
