What are pluses and minuses of buying a condominium?

The Twin Cities has had a huge growth in new condominiums, and it has been an attractive alternative to all age groups. Many younger buyers have found it a great first home since it is close to entertainment and restaurant and lots of activities. Many professional people of all ages like it for the same reasons. Many older buyers want to travel and not do lawn work required on a single-family home and decide a condominium is a good fit too.
