Unit R3 for sale SOLD!

Posted September 17, 2013 by svandellen

Hi, and welcome!  If you’ve just found us, please take a look at this photo tour of Unit R3, and then read our About page to learn more about us and who we are as a cooperative.

IMG_6953

We (Sarah and Sam) love this studio.  It’s spacious yet comfy.  Lots of daylight from the skylights.  Great kitchen.  We’re relocating, and we’re seeking the next great co-op member–you?

Features:

  • open layout
  • lots of daylight from the skylights.  One skylight opens for roof access.
  • efficient, easy-to-use kitchen
  • sunny breakfast nook plus space for dining table
  • huge & luxurious soaking tub
  • nice soft (waterproof) cork floor makes you want to dance or do yoga
  • You can watch movies projected onto the wall.
  • easy to heat, warm in winter
  • all snugly nestled under green roof.

Asking $4,000 buy-in (negotiable–make us an offer!).  The HUB provides financing!  There’s a monthly fee that covers your part of the mortgage and the co-op’s carrying charge.  Your part of the mortgage is $533.20.  The carrying charge is $425 right now (will likely go up a little bit soon).  This pays for most costs of ownership, including property tax, building insurance, repairs, projects, and adding to the reserve.  There are also a couple of charges that are per person–hot water and wifi.  So the total comes to $991.56 for one person, $1010.81 for two, etc.  Remember, you’re an owner, so you can deduct your share of the mortgage interest and property tax.

Please contact Sarah sarahbikes@gmail.com or Sam treechunk@gmail.com for more details.

Democracy Derailed by Greed Virus

Posted August 6, 2013 by terry
