In California, we and some other groups (I believe) have incorporated as
'Non-profit, mutual benefit' corportations (for mutual benefit of the
members of the corporation). We are not however a 'tax exempt' non-profit.
Also known as a 'non-profit public benefit' in CA and as a  501c(3)
corporation by the IRS (we are a 510c(4)). There is precident for Homeowners
Associations to become 501c(3) but I think you will be up against quite a
struggle to convince the IRS that a corporation formed for building (if you
are) and selling houses should be tax exempt.
