What does it mean to purchase a membership?2017-10-17T17:31:02+00:00

In cooperative housing you purchase a membership, not a deed to the property. The buyer does not need a separate mortgage because one master mortgage covers the entire building. The buyer does not pay the closing costs normally associated with the purchase of a home. The monthly housing charge is a share of the operating costs for the cooperative based on the size of the apartment, and a share of the master mortgage.
