How to choose between a condo and a house

For a buyer who is asking to himself/herself this question, the next question asked should be “Is this the main place I will live?” It is difficult for a foreign buyer to maintain a property from overseas, but new changes in the housing market push foreign buyers more and more toward houses. Yes, of course you will need to find a managing company which can take care of your landscaping, pool, and security, but it might be worth it. The condo prices in such cities as Sunny Isles and Miami Beach have almost doubled in the last 5 years, while the housing market for waterfront properties in Fort Lauderdale and Boca Raton have increased about 35-40% for the same time period which can make a buyer take a good look into the house market carefully. The price and convenience should take top precedence when picking between a house and condo.
