Some realtors say owning a condo can mean less stress than owning a home. Connie James, a realtor with Coldwell Banker, says, "People want to simplify your lives, and it helps you do that, it helps get rid of some of the stresses like taking care of a house, the maintenance the exterior maintenance."
The "Parade of Condos" will last until August seventh. Tickets are eight dollars and can be purchased at any Dane County Anchor Bank or at one of the parade sites. For more information you can visit www.maba.org.
