YES, IN TERMS OF CONVENIENCE. Co-op living is better than renting in many ways:

  • You make one monthly payment that includes principal, interest, taxes, insurance, administration, and maintenance of home, landscaping, and playgrounds.

  • You don't collect rent receipts - your investment in Kensington Place continues to grow in value.

  • It is possible that approximately 75% of your payment will be tax deductible - not so with renting where you get no benefit from your rent dollar.

  • Also tax deductible, is the share of cooperative's interest paid by the family, or on their behalf.

  • You pay only the actual cost of the nonprofit operation - if you rent, you pay what the landlord can get away with.
