There are many differences between having a single family house vs a condo. For many a condo is a great alternative as all of the exterior landscaping is taken care of so you dont have to spend your day off mowing trimming bushes raking leaves and making everything nice. In addition in the winter someone else takes care of clearing the sidewalks and parking lots from snow. As a general rule in addition exterior maitnenance is taken care of by the condo association. The limitations to a condo are that usually there are association rules that must be followed. These do vary by association. A home on the other hand(unless it is in certain subdivisions) does not have any rules that follow it. However the homeowner is responsible for all maintenance. Either are great choices it depends on what your current lifestyle is and what would be best suited for you.
