The truth is many people love the idea of cohousing but can’t afford it. There are more in Europe since their governments help in the financing. Here in the US you have to cough up all the money and may lose it all as developers – unless you have an actual developer or buy a resale.
So, my question is how much is it worth to you? Many spend whatever and even beyond their means. That was my attitude. This is amazing, I’ll do anything for it. Thank goodness the bank brought me back to reality and I”m not hurt financially now that it went kaput for me.
I just saw a listing for a cohousing unit that’s basically the same as mine except the price – one and a half million dollars. Wow. That made me think. Would I pay that? Of course not, now. Maybe before I would’ve robbed a bank or something.
I know it probably matches up in the location but that seems pretty heavy. Many cohousers have some money but if you are talking millions, wouldn’t most millionaires want something more private? To fit the caviar lifestyle?
Then I heard that a friend has a friend who is a realtor and sold an island in North Carolina’s Atlantic beaches for one and half million dollars.
Your own island beach or a cohousing unit?
I know my anwer.
Before you play the lonely card, I’ve had more friends visit me here at the beach than ever before. And unlike cohousing, they are real friends. Guaranteed. Cohousing can’t promise that – just neighbors who may be the community you are looking for or may not be.
I guess for some, cohousing is literally worth millions.
