Good luck. In many ways I would like to own a condo since I have zero interest in yard work/house maintenance but due to:
1. Resale value
2. Noise factors
3. Continued maintenance of the property being an unknown

I've avoid them. Instead I have a 2,000+ sq ft, 4 bed, 2.5 bath house on a 1/2 acre which is excessive for a single guy (north of 40) but I figure it will sell much easier than a small condo/house, especially considering the neighborhood it is in.

Hopefully in the next 5-10 years I will downsize and/or retire to someplace smaller and a lower cost state.

I think if I ever went the condo route it would only be as a renter. If anyone has a better suggestion I'm open to them.
