One difference between the two is that a service apartment is almost always flagged for commercial use, as opposed to residential stays at condominiums. Kindly refer to this article for some of the key differences: https://www.propertyguru.com.my/property-guides/serviced-apartment-condo-malaysia-16623
There are property ownership limits (minimum purchase price), which differs from state to state in Malaysia. So, if a foreigner is looking to buy a property in Selangor, the rules are different from buying a property in Johor.
The minimum price for Johor is RM2 million (landed property in designated international zones), and RM1 million (high-rise/strata title property within non-international zones, except for Medini).
You may refer to our comprehensive guide, which covers the types of properties foreigners can buy, ownership price limits in each state, the steps involved and more. It's here: https://www.propertyguru.com.my/property-guides/complete-guide-to-foreigners-buying-property-in-malaysia-30975
