A big advantate to a condo is the common maintenance. People complain about condo fees, but try paying for a new roof! Also, if you plan to travel, work long hours, etc., the freedom to leave and do nothing but lock the door behind you can be a great feature. For resale, there is usually quite a step in value with the 2nd bedroom and bathroom, so if you can afford that, try. Good luck!
There are some great buys out there now!
Good Luck in your search! And, yes a good condo agent can guide you in what the resale of the one you are wanting to buy will likely in the future - remember, real estate in any form is a GREAT INVESTMENT!
