One factor in a condo in South Florida would be the cost of hurricane insurance/flood insurance which will make your homeowners association fees very, very high.

I live in a condo in S Florida. More of a townhouse really, but as a legal entity, it's still a condominium. Not on the beach, a few miles inland. Units in here are going for about $200k right now. My monthly condo fee runs about $300, which covers insurance (hurricane and flood), maintenance, landscaping, pool, etc.
