With a condo, like an apartment, you have a built in social option of close neighbors. Unlike a rented apartment, you are likely to have other owners surrounding you which offers more stability and common ground.
Resale of your condo if you out grow it … investors are always looking at townhomes and condominiums for rental property. Unlike houses, the investment is often more manageable.
Amenities … often condo units come with amenities as extensive as tennis courts, swimming pools, a workout area, or a clubhouse. These are things in a house you would have to add yourself or join a club to get the same benefits.
Flexibility with design. Buying a home and facing redecorating can be a daunting task; however, a condo offers the same chance to play with design but on a much less overwhelming scale.
Location. If you are interested in being in a district where property is at a premium, condominiums are a good choice. Condominium units are frequently found in downtown areas and offer owners the best of ownership and location at a more affordable price.
