For many people, owning a home is still a must, but alternative forms of living are definitely attractive.

Affordable living space is a rarity in the metropolises. Cooperative housing can be a worthwhile alternative to owning a home. In addition to the returns, however, marital status is also decisive.
D.he roof over one’s head is a never-ending story. Some love it and want it at (almost) any price. The others reject it and seek their salvation in other facilities. I don’t want to serve you the seventy-fifth infusion today, regardless of whether the home or rented apartment is the better investment. Instead, let me introduce you to an idea that a hamburger put on my table before Christmas. He wanted to know what I think of cooperatives, whether this type of living in connection with a share savings plan is a sensible alternative to the classic condominium.
I don’t want to make a murder pit out of my heart. I have a heartfelt dislike for “comrades” because I was born in East Germany and had bad experiences with red socks. That is why I put off the answer to the question of whether cooperative apartments are advantageous investments like a hot potato. I too know how to cultivate my prejudices, but I apologize. Cooperative housing combined with stock savings plans can be an interesting combination, and the justification can be found in the numbers.
