Extrapolating from a sample size of exactly one,
I think it may have to do with the size on the
condo. Our 12 unit condo is a wonderful group of
people. Since the board is made of 5 owners, by
default it's pretty representative of the
ownership, and virtually everyone comes (or sends
a proxy) to the annual meeting for elections.
Here in NYC, co-ops are more prevalent than
condos, and those have a much worse rep for being
obnoxious, particularly in terms of approving sales.
Main point: we love the small community and the
group efforts of the residents of our building.
