I would not buy a condo or townhouse.

They are not good investments in the long run.

There's no guarantee that the, "neighbors," are going to be courteous or quiet. If your friend buys a townhouse with a family of 4 above him, he might have to invest in ear plugs to sleep. Reminds me of when I used to live in an apartment...kind of like hell on earth.

If your friend buys a townhouse, he's not even guaranteed a parking spot unless he buys a garage. Imagine that, pulling up to your new, "home," and not being able to find a parking spot that isn't more than 50 feet away if the, "neighbors," are having a party.

Buy a house. There's nothing like pulling into your own driveway at the end of a long day, pushing the overhead door button and easing your car into your very own garage.

Having your own backyard is a big plus too. And if your friend wants to own a pet in the future, he won't have to ask permission to do so.

Mowing the lawn and taking care of your own property isn't hard, it's fun.

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.
