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...



Yes I can dig all that BUT... I am not afraid of dreaconian Hitlerian rules as long as they apply to everybody. And the paralles of apts vs condos depends on what kind of condo

I was thinking alomng the lines of what another poster said ref condos at least getting a higher class of lout, as it were.

I still like renting tho. If I had the bread I'd rent4 apartaments. Mine and the ones that adjoin it. The best of both worlds and I wouldnt even have to move
