Joys of Home ownership

Well, how to start this, oh I know! I HATE BEING A HOMEOWNER. There now that is out of the way. I know it is the "American Dream" to own your own home, but it really isn't all it is cracked up to be, especially when you have a "pre-owned" home. Since purchasing our house, 4 years ago, our water heater died, and our sewer has backed up into the basement 4 times ruining the carpet down there. We discovered why the house is covered in wall-paper. It appears that it has lead based paint, so as we have been redoing rooms we have been removing wall paper and sealing the walls. UGH I didn't sign up for this, at least not knowingly. I am ready to be done with this thing and move somewhere when if something happens I call someone else and they come and fix the problem. What are my choices with this? Is it back to apartment living? Is this how most condos are run? I need to start researching my options.
