The goal of the Vermont Real Estate Co-op is to purchase commercial and residential properties and rent them out, preferentially to other co-ops. We are a member-owned and -controlled business that offers:
- For our community: Sustainable local ownership of real estate that builds community wealth.
- For tenants: Reasonable, stable rents and a way to share in any surplus.
- For member-owners: A values-based investment, a vote in key decisions, and the opportunity to help shape the direction of the business.
- A way to support the solidarity economy: part of our mission is to rent to co-ops, collectives, and similar social enterprises.
We are raising capital for our second purchase!
