What's the advantage when buying a condo?

1. The external repairs, maintenance and upkeep is the responsibility of the condo management company. They maintain a master insurance policy for all the condos in the project so you as a condo owner would need limited insurance (a walls in policy) for the inside of your home.
2. Most condos are set up with a single entry security system unlike a home where someone could walk to your front door unless you are in a gated community or have a private gated drive
3. If you're not much of a DIY, you don't have to worry about snow removal, cutting the grass and maintaining the landscape
4. Some condos come with utilities included in the condo fee so you don't get a bill for your water or gas for instance
These are some factors that I can think of but at the end of the day, it is a personal preference
