Re: Transfer fee when a unit turns over

We have had a $2500 gift last year and a $2000 gift this year (both voluntary 
from the former resident and former resident's family ).  We are looking into 
considering this as a part of sales especially since we do help with the sale 
on our website, listing the unit, helping prospective buyers with tours of the 
property, etc.  .   We haven't finalized anything.  Will be interested in 
seeing other responses.

Do any of the communities on this list have either a transfer fee written into 
your condo docs where a seller is obligated to pay back to the community a 
percentage of the sale price when they leave the community, or have a gifting 
culture where a large gift gets made when a cohousing unit sells?

We would really appreciate learning how that is going, if you would please 
share your experience.

Thanks very much,
