Many people picture a high-rise building filled with apartments when they think of a condominium. But, not all condos are high-rises. In fact, not all condos are buildings, much less hi-rises! For example, a bare land condo  is a condominium in which the owner owns land only.
Even horses are getting into the act! Some stables have gone condo. In a stable condo, the owner purchases a single stall for his horse in a stable, but shares the stable and grounds with other horses and owners. At a marina, it is possible to condo a … (6 comments)

property: Homeownership is not for everyone - 06/12/13 11:30 PM
Of course as a homeowner you’ll be responsible for maintenance and repairs on the house. As a condo owner, many of these responsibilities are handled by the condo association. Either way, you’re the type of person who has taken charge of his or her life. You can paint your wall any color you want. You don’t need your landlord’s permission to get a pet.

property: Some Buyers Snap Up Retirement Homes Early - 06/07/13 12:25 AM
With home values falling over the past few years, some buyers are seeing a great opportunity to buy their retirement home now instead of waiting until they retire years later.
For example, in one of the largest retirement areas in the nation — Century Village in Boca Raton, Fla. — the average age of a new home buyer has dropped from the mid-70s to the low 60s in the last year.  Charlie Rocque, 56, may not be ready for retirement but he already bought his retirement apartment there for $20,000 (though it was valued at around $75,000).

property: Home Preferences of Millennials - 05/06/13 11:49 PM
The Millennial generation is showing a preference for fixer-upper houses over the “cookie cutter” luxury homes their parents’ generation tended to desire, according to a national survey by Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate.

Forty-seven percent say they would be more likely to handle home maintenance jobs themselves over calling in a professional for help. What’s more, 72 percent of Millennials consider themselves handy, earning the nickname the “Fix-It Generation,” according to the survey.
