Two more ways a 'group' can save money

I: Save $$ by joining with a congenial community:

Above, we presented the notion of buying with random others in order to save money - the only commonality with your neighbors is that you all chose the same exact location.

Here we present the idea of buying with a group of people who are similar to you, so you feel your building (or collection of private homes) forms its own mini-neighborhood. Besides gaining a congenial mini-community, there's an additional benefit as explained in the graphic below.

What makes a neighborhood attractive to you as an option to move into - is it the type of people? the general ambience? It may be possible to create this ambience together with your building-neighbors.

Where might you be willing to live if you had a nice "community-in-a-building"?

We'll be asking you these questions in the 4-question "Optional Section" of the survey below, so that we can group you with others who answered similarly.

"Live with neighbors like thyself!"

Those who chose this option can benefit doubly: by getting a group-rate, and by getting this reduced group-price on an apartment which is cheaper to begin with since it is in a less expensive neighborhood.

II: Special design: greater convenience & increased savings

In the survey we'll ask which is YOUR demographic, and whether you might possibly be interested in a 'special design' building. If so, we can introduce you to others wanting the same, via a no-commitment discussion forum on our site. In many cases this can save each member of the group a lot of money - as well as increasing convenience.

All groups can for example choose for their building to have a common room to serve as a synagogue and/or social/cultural/educational center.

For a group composed of:

* families with small children: the apartments can have cleverly designed small bedrooms, with a common playroom in the building;


* families arriving with an elderly grandparent: the apartments can be designed to have an attached granny-flat, and the building can have a common social-room for the grandparents;

* seniors: small apartments, with safety features, and a common room in the building for socializing;

* singles, mini-apts with a social-room in the building;

Or any other design YOUR group decides on, to fit the common needs of your group, and do so space-efficiently. You can collaborate online with the members of your group to choose an architect, and work with them online to execute the design your group chooses. A building can be designed with a mix of types, apartments suited to different demographics, or it can be devoted solely to YOUR demographic. In effect, the entire building and individual apartments would all be designed to reflect YOUR needs. Perhaps living in such a building where the residents have this in common can add to the sense of a "community-in-a-building". Another way to save: Groups wanting the same design but in different regions can hire the same architect, sharing the design fee.
