condo vs house

Buying a condo unit during the preconstruction phase might seem to be a straightforward proposition. However, in real life, buying a unit before it's constructed may work out to be anything but straightforward.
To many buyers and unit owners, condominium ownership may still be ambiguous and convoluted. Since condos aren't based on the same ownership structure as street-level traditional (freehold) homes, comparing condos to traditional homes is like comparing apples with oranges.
