BROWN DEER COOPERATIVE
A housing cooperative is a form of joint ownership in a housing development. Members purchase a share in the cooperative. The cooperative holds title and owns the building and land. Members are a part of the cooperative and retain membership benefits through on occupancy agreement and through member participation.
At least one owner of each home must be age 55 or above. All owners must qualify for membership and must show that they have the financial resources to purchase the membership share.
RETURN ON INVESTMENT
The value and share will appreciate using the Limited Equity Formula, limiting appreciation to 1.5% of the share value, compounded annually. This practice is widely used by cooperatives to keep the units affordable overtime, therefore building waiting lists of prospective buyers and to promote ease of resale.
A cooperative housing specialist will work closely with members on personal design and selections of home amenities. Personal design selections for standard and upgrade options are available to buyers who purchase prior to construction deadlines.
