Mr or Ms ADS: Here is a bad, but illustrative joke, with the answer below: Which one of these does not fit with the others? Syphilis, AIDS, condominiums, or gonorrhea?
The problem with town houses and condos is that they don’t appreciate as fast as single family homes, have sometimes onerous home owner dues, and depend on the home owners’ association for up keep. They can be quite risky unless you can buy well below fair market value.
The answer is Syphilis, because you can get rid of Syphilis.
