Be voted in by the members. By this point, we’ve gotten to know you and you’ve had a chance to learn about us — let’s make it official! Pay the $400 membership fee.

Make the minimum $2,000 investment to be added to the Rosewater Ranch, LLC and vote in member decisions. We’ll go through all the details of investing with you.The money you invest will go toward your home purchase price.

Within one month from your initial investment, make an additional investment to bring your total up to a minimum of $10,000 – current with the “cash calls” that have been invested by all members in the project so far.

Join a committee, attend meetings, and contribute 5 personal hours a week in helping to move the project along! It takes a village to get it built

Before the start of construction (Winter 2025 – Summer 2026), bring your investment up to 20% of your home price. This is the down payment for your home, required to secure the construction loan for the project.

Once construction is complete, you would typically seek a traditional mortgage, and we would be able to show that you have already met the 20% downpayment.

Enjoy all the benefits that Cohousing offers, including close neighbors, regular community dinners, beautiful natural spaces, gardens and gatherings!
