Managing Your Business
Housing co-operatives are small businesses formed to provide housing for their members. They prosper best when they are fully occupied and members pay their housing charges in full and on time.
A housing co-op is not a complex business, but it takes work to keep it going. As the steward of your business, your board’s job is to see that the business thrives so that members’ homes are not only affordable, but a good place to live.
How-to information and resources can help your co-op succeed, but your board, staff and members will have to do the work yourselves.
Hundreds have done it and so can your co-op. Let’s get started.
