Re: rent or buy condo for business

Are they similar places? If so, it's a no-brainer: buy. If somebody can get $40K/year rent from that condo, subtract the $6K fees, and you're getting $34K/year from a $330K investment -- better than 10%/year. But I suspect you're comparing apples and oranges, in which case the answer is: no idea.
