Over the past 3 days 1,486 of our readers answered a Facebook poll we posted which posed the question “What type of Vancouver housing do you live in?”.
While the participants make up less than 2% of the 75,843 people who Like our Facebook Page, and while there’s a problem with internet polls in that you can only ever capture the type of people who enjoy taking polls (while missing out on a large chunk who don’t), I believe these results are fairly indicative of what type of housing you folks live in.
Interesting things to note here are that while nearly 22% of people who responded say they live in old school apartment buildings, 18.4% say they own a condo. That’s a lot of condo owners. Also interesting was that the 3rd most popular response was that you people own single family homes. I did not expect that.
Among the responses for “OTHER” were 4 people who own duplexes (or at least half a duplex), someone who lives in a “Stealth cargo van conversion”, and one person who lives in a Senior’s home. Nobody stated that they inhabit a SHARED MANSION, HOBBIT HOUSE, a TREEHOUSE or an INSANE FLOAT HOME… so we’ll still try to keep bringing you stories like those.
And while this Facebook poll business is fun we’re working on something better with the Vancouver startup Wantoo which will be sortof like a poll, but not really. And it won’t have to do with housing. Stay tuned in the next couple of weeks.
