I'd be more worried about the type of people who end up on the Board of Directors of your condo's Homeowner's Association. The anal-retentive types that are usually attracted to these positions of power can be every bit as loutish as your "rental" neighbors. And, of course, if you decide to leave, selling a condo is more expensive than waiting for your apartment lease to expire.

Hey now, I was on the board of my HOA last year and I can tell you first hand my anal did not retent anything!

Who was attracted to the position out of a desire to improve the property, not lord over it...
