Playing around with mortgage calculators on the web, using a 5% down
payment and 8% interest, it seems to me a loan on this combination of
debt to income is overcommitted and cannot be bought.  Could this be
correct?  I imagine that no one in a coho would want to construct a
financial situation which guarantees the residents are in over their
heads, as this would be 'predatory lending'.  What am I missing?
Is there a planning assumption that other coho members will donate
towards a larger down payment?
