Waiting Lists

I'd like to thank this Listserv and all those who responded to the 
questions I recently posted about shared utilities and cohousing 
communities having waiting lists after construction.  It's so great to 
be able to benefit from the experiences of others.

I have another question about waiting lists.  How do other cohousing 
communities manage waiting lists for people who want to move in, but 
the units they want are not presently available?

1.  Do they pay a one time fee or do they need to continue paying some 
kind of ongoing monthly or quarterly fee to remain on the waiting list?

2.  Do people sign up to be on the waiting list for a particular unit, 
a particular type of unit (such as two bedroom) or is there one list 
for the entire community?

3.  When a unit becomes available, how long does the household which is 
next in line have to decide whether or not they want to purchase the 
unit?   How long do they have to come up with the money?

If you could let us know what the policy is for your community, I 
would appreciate hearing about it.  Thanks.

the problem of waiting lines even though we're not expecting to break 
ground until January.
