Caring for Your Buildings
Housing co-operatives have just one valuable asset: their property. So it makes sense to take care of it.
A well-kept housing co‑operative has prouder, happier members who love their homes. It’s a place where other people want to live. And one that will serve generations to come, far into the future.
