I own a rental condo and live in a house. I have one problem with condos: you
get the same financial responsibilities as a homeowner, and the same
restrictions on what you can do as a renter.
A lot of proprietary communities and places with homeowners associations have
the same drawbacks. "Our covenant says a green grass lawn! Take out that
xeriscape immediately!" (True story in Albuquerque).
thus the reason I refused to move into a subdivision when we moved to Sarasota.
we got a 1920 bungalow with 1/2 acre and a giant oak trees instead. new homes
have nothing on the charm of this little house!
it is hard to find insurers, though
