It would have to best be answered by questions you need to ask yourself, and then let an experienced Realtor help with the search. (I am a Realtor with The Litchfield Company MB)
Just a couple of Questions you need to decide on are is it for retirement, to have a paid for vacation - where it can pay for it self or darn near close to it, and then in a couple of years sell and move on to hopefully bigger and better like a beach home that can bring in bigger income. So start with the " Why " then move on to the choice of , condo, cond-tel or house. If you would like any more information , I would be happy t help, my primary clients are investors, from first time to that million dollar home for income on the beach. So please visit my website , and let me know if you would like to be contacted. ~ Cheers and Sunshine from The Beach!
