Limited equity housing cooperatives are organizations in which residents collectively own and manage housing, including rehabilitated apartment buildings. The cooperative aims to develop and preserve housing for low-to-moderate-income people. The collaborative nature of these organizations also fosters a sense of community, which may not be present in privately owned apartment buildings. The residents of a limited equity cooperative own their units, but the cooperative restricts the units’ sales price, or the amount of profit members can make from sales.
