Condo or Single-Family? That Is the Question

Scot Van Voorhis made the point last week:

Condos emerged as Greater Boston's answer to the starter home during the bubble years—as a way to get into the real estate market for less than $300,000.

But as home prices in middle class and blue collar towns have slipped, some buyers who would have been forced to settle in years past for a condo have found new options in the single-family home market.

Indeed, for what you might now pay for that 1,200 square feet of city vibe you can get twice as much or more of urban suburbia. So what do you think?
