In response to Ann Zabaldo’s questions about resales:  Several of our members 
have attended your presentations.

1.  any communities have instituted a resale/rental program based on our 
program at TVC.  Even if you?ve modified the program or only used part of it ? 
can you let me know?  We have extensive information on our website ? <> ? where you can find lots of info 
for Sellers and Buyers. So if you adopted any of the information on our website 
please let me know that, too?

Quimper Village has had 4 sales (3 to outside buyers 1 to an inside buyer) 
since we moved in 21/2 years ago.   We have used more of the resale program 
that Takoma Village developed with each sale.  We have modified some of the 
documents to fit our community and town.    The final sale resulted in a 
donation of $7200 to the community.   We do not have any rentals.

2.  you have a resale and rental program of your own ? can you very briefly 
describe the program, point me to a website, or send me information?

3.  you have a process for new members to join your community ?  e..g. attend a 
meeting, dinner, write a bio, or anything else?  

We do ask prospective members to attend a general meeting, come to dinner, 
write a bio, come to a ‘coffee and conversation’ session with members to hear 
our expectations of members and answer their questions.  We also use a 
questionnaire.  All of our new members are very participative in the community 
and are very interested in selection and orientating new members.

4.  you have no process for new people joining your community or selling a home 
in your community what has been your experience of that?  Do new members 
participate in member meetings? Teams? Work days? Social events? Dinners?

Since QV is a senior community, we are working on suggested language for 
members to include in their wills to instruct their executors or trustees about 
how to work with the community to sell their homes.  We take this community 
stuff seriously.

You don?t need to write an essay.  Grateful for any information you wish to 
share w/ the whole list or privately w/ me. If you don?t want to be identified 
in my presentation I won?t use any names or identifying information.
