Condo living definitely has its perks, especially with some of the resort style condos along the beach. Since common area maintenance is included in the association dues, this reduces the owner’s upkeep responsibilities and allows them to simply relax and enjoy their property. This is especially important for owners who treat their properties as second homes or investment properties. They can just show up, relax, and then walk away knowing that everything is being maintained and taken care of. Ahhh, the good life!
