|What is a Cooperative (Co-Op)?|
In a co-op, one does not own a unit. One owns a share of stock in a corporation which owns (or leases) the land and buildings which allow you to lease an apartment or unit for as long as you own the stock. You are very limited on what you can do to the interior of your unit, but you don't have to worry about maintenance. In a co-op, if the furnace goes out, the co-ops maintenance crew will fix the problem. Co-ops are run by a Board of Directors. The Board of Directors not only collects monthly maintenance fees and uses it to maintain the property; they also decide who can live in the co-op by deciding who can buy stock. A share of stock cannot be mortgaged, but it can be pledged as security for a loan, and the loan is sometimes referred to as a mortgage. Some lending institutions do make loans on cooperative units, although a larger down payment may be required, and the interest rate may be higher than on a real estate mortgage.
Some Notes about Co-ops in Collier County:
In Collier County there are still about 35 residential cooperatives. There were about 100 residential cooperatives at one time in Collier County, most of them created in the early 1960's, before the first laws recognizing a condominium form of ownership. Since that time, condominiums have become the more predominant form of multi-family residential development in Florida.
The financial soundness of a co-op is reflected in the exceeding low number of foreclosures and short sales of these units. The total number of cooperatives in Florida are gradually shrinking because one-by-one the existing cooperatives are being converted to condominiums. New cooperatives are not being built in Southwest Florida.
What is a Modified Bitumen Roof?
A Modified Bitumen Roof is applied by using a torch to the back of a rubber-like membrane and melted into the roofs base ply. A Modified Bitumen Roof is often used on commercial buildings and mid-rise condominiums. It has a light-colored mineral surface that reflects heat and cuts energy bills. A typical Modified Bitumen Roof lasts approximately 10-20 years.
