Why Co-ownership?

Community

Co-ownership can provide people with a support network, and a sense of community at home.

Affordability

Splitting the costs of a down payment and monthly mortgage payments reduces the financial burden of owning a home.

Sustainability

Sharing space and resources helps to preserve energy and reduce carbon emissions.

Equity

Building wealth through home ownership is a much better alternative than paying off someone else's mortgage through rent payments.
