This kind of problem makes me really leery of condos in general and high-rises especially.
I feel the same way- but in Orange County, it's difficult buying a house for a reasonable price. I got a good deal on my condo when I purchased it 4 years ago (price has gone up $100k since then), but a lot of my neighbors have a fancypants lifestyle that isn't conducive to saving.
For example, I have neighbors that make $80k or more and live paycheck to paycheck. These are people that are single, no kids, never married. :-/
