When I decide to sell my condo, I'm prepared to lose 20% to foster a fast sale. At that point it's loses/months I've lived there, and that calculation is much less than rent would have been.
I think condos can sell quickly, too, just based on price. Single and young, divorced parents, and retired people can live there more easily. There can be a lot of competition, though, since it's hard to stand out on anything other than price.
Distance to things might bother me. I like solitude six and a half days a week, but the other half day I like being five to fifteen minutes away from a wide variety of activities. And three days a week, I like that it's a short drive out of my way to work to two different coffee shops.
