Coop Florida Mortgage Financing

Florida Coop Financing

What is a Florida Coop?

A coop/co-op, which is also known as a cooperative share (or cooperative housing), is a multi-family housing complex that is owned by a corporation.   Instead of purchasing an individual unit, as would be the case with a traditional condominium complex, you purchase a share of the corporation that owns the building.  Therefore, you are essentially a shareholder in the corporation, versus a typical homeowner. With a Coop, each participant (or shareholder) gets to occupy a unit in the housing complex.

Coops properties are often treated like second homes and are quickly growing in popularity among Florida vacationers looking for time share real estate.
