What is a Co-op Loan?

A housing Co-Op is when a cooperative group (usually a corporation) owns a piece of real estate and allows individuals to purchase a share of the corporation. Someone living in a Co-Op does not own the unit they are living in, they instead own shares in the corporation that owns all of the units. However, those living in a Co-Op often receive similar tax benefits to those that own a home – making it a desirable living arrangement for many.

What is Required to Buy Into a Co-op Loan?

In order to buy into a Co-Op, the Co-Op board must approve you. Think of this like applying for a mortgage: there will be credit and financial history checks, employment history verification, character references and several other deciding factors taken into consideration.
