For the creation of the Housing Cooperative there is a small non-binding payment of 30 Euros per sqm of the chosen apartment. After that the acquisition of the property, the project and its construction will be paid gradually on phases to be defined with the new residents.

Just in time to celebrate the 2018 Christmas.

Average price of an apartment with property is estimated to be 240k Euros, excluding all the extras each individual will want to have.

Ossus Pankki is our partner on this project. Each individual will belong to the housing cooperative but will need to request an individual loan to the bank. The common property will serve as a guarantee.

The first payment of 30 Euros per sqm is fully refundable. The second payment of 20k is the acquisition of the property. Until this phase there is no risk . The construction phase always carries risks of price fluctuation which will be agreed among all participants into which percentage can it go. More on cohousing in Finland here.
