They may not get as much attention as freestanding houses, but the supply of condominiums has outpaced the supply of single-family homes for the past year, according to the National Association of Realtors.
With so many condos on the market, it makes sense for South Florida homebuyers to give them a look. There is nothing like owning a condo that’s right “on the sand’ affording the owner an ocean view and access to the beach. A condo (short for "condominium") is a private residential unit within a multiunit building, project, or community. While the residences are usually apartment-like—they share walls—they can also be semidetached, like townhouses, or even fully detached, too. The residences frequently share common areas, facilities, and amenities, swimming pools and internal garages.

PROS OF BUYING CONDOS:
Luxurious facilities, features, and grounds. Spas, clubhouses and recreation rooms are among the amenities that condos offer residents. Security. Not only are other people residing in close proximity, but complexes are often gated or staffed with guards and have sophisticated security systems. Concierge services. Many condo complexes have doormen and desk people, along with custodial staff. Less maintenance and upkeep. No mowing lawns, raking leaves or replacing broken windows. You are usually only responsible for your interior.
