In this interesting article, a pretty rosy picture of Sweden is put forth for potential home buyers. Of more interest, though, is that the articles mentions the prevalence of cohousing in the country:
At those prices, it’s no surprise that co-housing, Swedish-style, is the latest trend: you own a flat, or at least a bedsit, in a grand house and share amenities, such as an on-site gym. There are 45 co-housing communities in Sweden, of which 16 are in Stockholm.
Why is it that “community living” is so much more accepted outside this country?
