The problem of housing dissatisfaction positions the city of Lima as the last place in Latin America and the Caribbean; only 55.7% of Lima residents say they feel satisfied with their home. The objective of the research is to determine the socioeconomic viability of the Cohousing model in Lima as an alternative to the traditional real estate offer in the face of the current problem of dissatisfaction. Representative surveys have been used to identify the factors that influence the purchase intention of a home, focus groups were conducted to assess qualitative aspects of cohousing, presenting it as a competitive model, and a comparative economic-financial analysis was carried out regarding a traditional multifamily housing project. The results of the research confirm the viability of the cohousing model in Lima by recognizing a public interested in its economic and social benefits. The model could open new opportunities for change and innovation for the real estate market, as well as the possibility of formulating new housing programs by the State.
