Living in a Fishbowl

There is a lot of appeal to living in a condo complex.

First, you have a group of people doing maintenance on the exterior. So, you are not soley responsible for say, gutters or roofs. Of course, the result of this is a lot of resentment brewing from those people who think they are working harder than anyone else. And, of course, resident pressure on the group to enforce "work days" when only 2 people actually show up.

Then, there's the fact that you don't have to mow the lawn, take care of the front yard, etc.,.

But really, that's about the only appeal.

Listing the disadvantages is actually a much longer list. Because you are forced to throw your financial lot in with a bunch of people who really aren't that money savvy (or they would have bought a house...or they are a single parent without a lot of choices when it comes to house purchasing...or they don't really care about how they live so they choose to live in a low maintenance housing choice...). And these people are obnoxious and inescapable.

I am going to buy a house.
