I’ve often wondered how people choose their condos. It seems like there are two clear options. One are in the big new buildings and the other option is to purchase one in a converted rowhouse. So for those who have purchased condos how did you make the decision? What are the pros and cons?
Speaking of cons a reader wrote in to suggest I put the topic of condo boards/associations out there. I am intrigued by these condo boards. Specifically the reader would like to know how do people handle unruly members? How are differences solved without any bad blood with people who you have to live with and probably see frequently? What are some complicated matters that have been resolved through compromise? It seems like a very interesting world of politics and alliances and unfortunately sometimes brutal frustrations. Are condo boards easier to work with in the big buildings?
