So I'm just going to suggest that many in this discussion are falling for the "logical decision maker" fallacy. I'm pretty sure the last Noble prize in economics was given to the guy who made the argument that people do *not* base financial decisions on logic. As a cohousing community that had four years of sales after move-in I can say with some certainty that when people ask "tell me this number" and you reply with "that number doesn't matter" they just get annoyed. When I finally looked up HOA fees at all the surrounding condo communities I determined that ours are way above other communities in the area, except one, which we were still above by nearly $100 per month. When people asked, and I told them *that* people were much more satisfied with the answer. I'm not opposed to adding all the additional "ours covers this and this" and their's covers "that and that". Or saying "we must also discuss our values around our reserves." But in my opinion no one can hear any of that without having their questions answered first. Logical arguments are not the only way that decisions are made or that people are convinced. Providing people with information they have asked for is helpful, whether or not it is relevant from a logical viewpoint. Liz Mosaic Commons Cohousing Berlin, MA -- -Liz (The Rev.) Elizabeth M.
