The Pros: You poop on the bird, not the other way around. People down below look like little ants making you feel superior to them. You don't have to be medicated to feel like the building is swaying, because the building is swaying. Typically, condo's are in a great location and land is scarce. You'll always have a parking space. It's easier to meet people. You get to brag that you live in a condo. You don't have to mow the grass or paint the exterior walls. You don't have to clean the pool (most of the time).
Cons: Every time your dog wants to go outside, you have to go down stairs and outside hoping he/she can hold it that long. Every time you come home, you have to go up upteen flights to get to your unit. This is especially aggravating when you get to the car and realize you don't have the car key. If you drink too much, you may get lost because they all look the same. You can never reach that one stain on the window unless you're crazy enough to hang out the balcony and try. During violent storms, you'll wish you bought a house. Seriously though, the worst the thing about condo's is that if the association is running low on funds, the association can assess you for thousands of dollars to cover the requirement funds. If your neighbors start foreclosing, you'll have to pay their association dues because you share the cost of maintenance with them. You can be assured that in about 20 years, the value will come back. If Johnny forgets to turn off the oven, you'll find out the hard way (put important papers in a safety deposit box, not in your condo). You have no privacy especially if your packages are delivered to the concierge. You have to share the pool with other people.
