Hello Daniel,
In Doral the prices of single family homes have slided downward, just like the condo/townhomes, however the ratio of condos/townhomes is much larger than single family homes, so an an investment the single family home is much safer bet.

I agree with Pam... single-family is a better investment. Definitely do your homework to make sure you buy at the right price, as you would do with any investment.

Typically a single family is a better investment. I would look at the inventory and statistics in the area.

Hi Daniel- The MOST IMPORTANT FACTOR in determining your answer is how long you plan to hold the property. Do not consider even purchasing real estate as an investment unless you are willing to hold for at least 3 years, preferably 5 and up.
If you are willing to invest for the long haul, then it doesn't matter whether it is a condo or a single family. Buy quality, buy location, and certainly, buy within your means, and you'll be successful. If you would like to discuss it more, feel free to contact me.

That is a personal decision. It will depend on what do you need, is it an investment? or are you looking for a place to live?

Anyway, if I would have to decide I will say a townhouse will be easier to rent. A single family home will be my choice if its a fixer upper and I can buy it at $150 per square feet in order to have a decent gap for repairs and profit.
