It completely depends on your lifestyle. I am expecting right now and currently my husband and I live in a condo. Although it will be difficult not having a yard for a while it is very convenient for us because we both have full time jobs and do not have time to be taking care of the maintenance in a home. Once your baby is a little older you may find that having green space is more important though, so if you are looking to stay long term I would recommend a home with a backyard if you have that option.

Many condo properties have great amenities for a family, single family homes allow the back yard as another living space. I would compare schools, for both types of properties, establish your short and long term goals. If your choice have more children single family homes could be better option condos/townhomes usually range from 1000 sq. ft to 1800 sq. ft. for average home buyer.
