Looking to downsize? You may be considering a move to a townhome or condo, but have you ever heard of a senior cooperative? Older adults choose cooperative living because it offers the benefits of homeownership—without the maintenance—along with a built-in social life and voice in community affairs.
Cooperative housing means joint ownership and operation of a housing development by those who live in it, giving members democratic control. At Applewood Pointe cooperative communities, we’ve heard time and time again from our resident members why they love the cooperative lifestyle.
Here are 6 reasons why you should consider cooperative living:
Tired of raking, shoveling snow, or cleaning gutters? Imagine letting go of the constant yardwork and daily outdoor tasks. At a cooperative, you can leave the indoor and outdoor maintenance to the experts. Cooperative living is low-maintenance, freeing up time for what truly matters: family, friends, and everything worth pursuing.
Applewood Pointe cooperatives feature a variety of shared spaces and amenities designed to encourage connection, including the great room, club room, fitness room, craft studio, and woodworking shop, as well as outdoor spaces for gathering. We know community and connection are key to good health, and at a cooperative, you can easily find both.
Why not move into a home you’ll be proud to show off to family and friends? In a newly built Applewood Pointe cooperative, you’ll find luxury finishes come standard and may include stainless-steel or slate appliances, granite or quartz countertops, and hard surface flooring. Your new home is completely turnkey—no updating or maintenance projects required.
In a cooperative, important community matters are decided by your board, which is made up of resident members. You can also join committees that organize various aspects of the community, such as social events, technology, grounds, and shared amenities—like the woodworking shop, craft studio, etc.
As they say, location, location, location! We carefully select our future community sites, with dining, entertainment, shopping, nature and recreation all within a convenient distance from your cooperative home. You’ll love your new neighborhood at Applewood Pointe.
