Hometown: Austin, TX
June 7, 2013
I found it while Googling for local co-ops in the SF Bay area.
A community of engaged and proactive people who work together to build a space that becomes a real home for all members; versus a master tenant who lures in housemates to help pay the bills, but is resistant to incorporating their housemates needs and feelings into how the housing situation will function. This seems to be a big problem in the SF Bay Area since many people reluctantly end up cohabitating with others.
rent and perhaps co-create if the stars align correctly
I'm open, but leaning towards staying in Berkeley. It will really depend on where my next full time job is located as I hate commuting. I own a car but I'd prefer to live within biking or walking distance from my workplace if possible.
I did co-op living for two years during undergrad. I just graduated from UC Berkeley and lived in the Berkeley Student Co-ops for four years. I'd like to make a lateral move into another co-op or intentional community by the end of the summer.
