Are you one of those Americans who've had it with boards and are Moving On Up from Condo to House in the 200 Largest Cities?

Single-family homes are cheaper than condos in 20 of the largest U.S. cities. Other urban hubs list houses for more than double — or almost triple — the median price of condos.

Research published by Point2 studied the 200 largest cities and found 20 where the median-priced single-family house cost less than the mid-priced condo. 

For example, in Windy City, the analysis found the median house costs $295,000; the median condo $320,000. The median Cleveland house costs $115,000; the median condo costs $181,000. A mid-priced home in Des Moines expenses $180,000; a condo $209,000.  

Other cities where houses cost less than condos include Pittsburgh (median house price, $212,000), St. Paul ($250,000), and even pricey Boston, where the median house costs $670,000, while the median condo fetches $675,000. 

The experience of dealing with a property management company can vary widely depending on individual circumstances, such as the specific property, location, personal preferences, and social media ratings.

However, there are some resources available that can help residents in New York City make informed decisions about property management companies. Online review sites, such as Yelp and Google Reviews, can provide insights into the experiences of other renters with particular companies. The Better Business Bureau can also provide information on a company's reputation and customer complaints.

It's wise to do your research and due diligence when selecting a property management company to rent from, including reading reviews, asking for recommendations from friends and family, and thoroughly reviewing the lease agreement before signing. Additionally, suppose you experience issues with a property management company during your tenancy. In that case, it's essential to document the problem and communicate with the company in writing to resolve it promptly.

However, some property managers either don't know how to read the smell of rotten odor or don't give a damn.
