    Just popping in with my 2 cents.

    I'd go unit.

    Then save, save, save and buy a house with a yard for when they get older.

    There's daycare, parks, museums, play centres etc so you aren't 'trapped' inside for the time you're in a unit.

    Good luck

    Duplex/villa or a townhouse would be the way to go.
    My DS hardly goes outside unless I do but I know he would more if he had a sibling.

    Id either do house or villa/ townhouse with at least some grass - my DS just about lives outside and while we do go out to parks /beach a lot it's just nice sometimes to hang out at home and play/invite their friends over

    I don't have kids, but go for the house and yard. DH and I have a 3bed 2.5bath townhouse and there's no way we could live here with more than one kid. The yard is so small and it doesn't take long for the living areas to start getting cluttered with "stuff". We are locked in here until mid 2015 with our mortgage, but we are also looking at houses with the intention to buy as soon as it's a financially viable option

    I personally can't wait to get into a unit (in the next year) to not have to worry about it.

    I know we are in the minority and if your kids spend a lot of time in the yard of course that's more what I would lean towards.
    Was going to ask same question.
    If you don't currently use it then you can loose it.
    Only downside with unit is dealing with 8loody body corp and the extra fees
