Build together

Building a property together with other families is becoming a common way to create affordable community-friendly homes. Such projects are often called baugruppe or baugemeinschaften in Germany, or cohousing in other countries.

Use GroupEstate to join a collective building project. Search for active projects in your preferred area, and use the filters to narrow your search. Contact the project organizer to become a potential member. If accepted, you can communicate with other members, learn more about the project, and decide to become a committed member.

You may also start your own project and attract interested members. Create your own project page by selecting your preferences, writing descriptions and adding pictures. GroupEstate makes the process of organizing a shared property project easy.
