What do you wish you had known or asked before you bought your condo?

We are thinking of buying a condo. We would use it as a rental, so most likely we would never live there. Aside from college, many moons ago, we've always lived in single family homes, so not much experience with renting or apartment life. What are the right questions to ask, or the right things to consider, before making this leap?

Have some spare money, should we buy a condo to offer as rent?

Married, and have some savings. Does it make sense buying a condo just for giving it out as rental? Caveat - I may have to sell it off in about 3-4 years though so I'm wondering whether it'll all be worth it. [more inside]

I own a condo in northern Virginia that I have been renting out for a few years and I have an applicant to move in...from overseas. He is post-doc at a government agency that has a two year appointment. What kinds of information should I gather to screen him as a tenant? And how do I deal with the broken lease from the previous tenant? [more inside]

How feasible is renting out a condo while living in another city?

I am thinking about buying a specific apartment (condo) in Brooklyn, NY. For this question, let's assume that this apartment is a smart investment / better than renting, financially. While I don't have plans to leave New York in the immediate future, I'm not 100% committed to staying here, either. So my question is about contingencies: if I got this apartment, then in a few years needed to move to a different city, how much pain would I be bringing upon myself to keep the apartment and rent it out?
