Hey Dennis, like Barry alluded to, many condo associations don't take multiple dogs. Plus, as far as an investment side, I've never understood why anyone would want to buy a condo. Values are much slower to appreciate and much quicker to depreciate from my knowledge. Your HOA fees cover maintenance but with what you pay, you can get your own maintenance!
People also think your grounds are covered with your HOA fee but there is nothing saying they can slap a special assessment on the owners to cover any major damages. I've seen people hit with special assessments upwards of $15-$25k to cover roof repairs and such that they have to come up with in 6 months or the HOA can come after you.
So again, why would someone want to buy a condo???
