Don't dismiss a condo because of the monthly fees if they are reasonable. When I sold my condo in Branson my wife wanted a house, but frankly I preferred the condo. The monthly association fee did not cost me nearly what lawn maintenance and exterior maintenance expenses cost for my house. Plus, there was the peace of mind knowing that I didn't have to do it!!

Utilities will also cost you more for a house than an equivalent sized condo. Because condos generally have neighboring units on at least one side and perhaps above there are fewer exterior walls, resulting in lower heating and cooling costs.
