Welcome to East Bay PREC
We are a start-up cooperative organization working throughout the East Bay area of Northern, CA with a focus on Alameda and Contra Costa Counties. This initiative seeks to make land and housing more accessible to community members, especially those that have been historically disenfranchised, in the face of rampant speculation and rising real estate prices.  Our movement is People Of Color (POC)-centered with a focus on creating deeply diverse communities.

We will soon be launching our first Community Stakeholder Membership drive.  By signing the pledge form you will be the among the first to know when we officially launch.  As a Founding Community Stakeholder you will have a unique opportunity to be at the ground level of shaping a new model that is going to change the face of real estate and land acquisition providing communities with a powerful tool for ending displacement.

What Is a PREC?
Permanent Real Estate Cooperative (PREC)
This developing model builds limited equity housing principles into emerging cooperative real estate ownership models becoming popular in New York City and a handful of other places. In this model, a Cooperative Corporation is formed to take title to the land. The owners (aka members) of the cooperative will include residents of the cooperative's property and of the surrounding community. This cooperative can hold a single property, or it can serve as the platform for the development of a new model of property ownership, acting as a container for the acquisition of multiple properties within a city or region.  The East Bay Permanent Real Estate Cooperative is the first iteration of this model.
