Values Led Investing

Be the change you wish to see. Become a Values-Led Investor We are brought together by a shared visions and set of collective values, and one of those values is a commitment to diversity, including multigenerational diversity. We also value making a positive impact on the wider Greek community. For these reasons, we are developing two impact investment opportunities for our members: Supporting Local Lives and Enriching our Community: “Our Greek Heroes” Program is for those who are willing to downsize and invest in an additional unit for Greek teachers, firefighters, nurses, farmers, and other "Greek heroes" who serve our community with dedication but whose salaries are among the lowest in Europe. Through subsidized rent or a rent-to-own scheme, your investment directly uplifts the lives of those who make a difference every day. It also ensures our village includes Greeks that help you and other expats navigate their new lives in Greece. A New Beginning: “Cohousing for Refugees” Program With each unit purchased and provided through subsidized rent, you offer a safe haven for legal refugees starting anew in Greece. Facilitate a path towards stability and community integration for families from places like Ukraine who are escaping adversity. In this way, you leave a legacy for a refugee family and nurture a vibrant, supportive neighborhood. Financial and Social Dividends While the heart of our program is the social good, expect a modest rental yield from your investment or a rent-to-own opportunity. The rent will be calculated based on local Sparta rents, and the community is further looking into the possibility of subsidizing the monthly community costs for those impact investors who are offering a rent-to-own opportunity to approximate interest on your loan. Connect and Learn More We invite you to connect with our founder, Evi (Pare) Gerou, for a detailed discussion on how you can contribute to this opportunity to make a difference.

Collaborative Partnership 

Imagine a home where your investment extends beyond your front door, into a community where every individual is valued and vital.

Our cohousing model is a commitment to shared growth, offering private residences within a supportive tribe that shares time with each other, co-management, shared celebrations and meals, beautiful common spaces and incredible amenities.

Engage in consensus-based decision-making and sociocracy governance training, enjoy shaping policies, planning celebrations, and forge relationships that turn neighbors into an extended family. Your home here is a place for a richer, more interconnected life.

Our Home Prices

*In keeping with a commitment to live more sustainably and anticipating life phase changes for multigenerational needs, some of our units will be able to be joined or modified as "hybrid units" in order to accommodate downsizing and upsizing.  Values-led investors will downsize their own personal unit and will invest in a second unit to enable a Greek family or refugee family to enrich our community while providing a very modest profit. 

*Our group is making decisions collectively about sustainable living features, special aesthetic features, and furniture and equipment, and that means our prices are not yet completely set in stone, but we are close! We've already begun excavation!
