If and when I ever decide to sell the place I am in now, it is going to take a year, and I might make 10% on it. Then again I am out in Banjostan, 30 minutes from work and on two acres.
The nice thing about Condos is that they sell quicker than homes. Younger people fed up with renting but not ready to do a ton of yardwork don't buy homes.
Or if I can't plow or even walk up my own driveway?
I pay the older dude with a truck to plow my part of the street. I don't even live in a city so the county is like "lol fuck you' when it comes to services like that. You invest in an AWD car, or a truck if you are too far out.
Moving out is great if you hate crowds and hate people. If you rather do things like go out to eat, hang out in a bar, go to a show, EVERYTHING is a 20-30 minute drive. That gets very annoying quickly if you can't handle solitude.
