Why consider Co-operative Real Estate now?

Make an Affordable Home Purchase

Real estate purchases and rentals are becoming too expensive for most individuals: Some Torontonians are spending up to 75% of their income on housing (Globe and Mail: Jan 2018)

Live in Community

Sharing space and resources creates healthy, more affordable communities. Less isolation means more engagement in community activities.

Stay in Your Neighbourhood

Co-operative real estate offers the opportunity to live or remain in communities you know and love.
