PLEASE HELP US BY SHARING THIS SURVEY!
I recently heard about an new artist housing project. The owners think that NO artists or creatives want to own their spaces, only rent them. Is this true? Please help me understand.
I own my home/studio
I rent and I wish I could own my home/studio
I prefer renting my home/studio
If you currently rent, what are your reasons for not buying? (select as many as you want)
I don't have a down payment
I think it is more expensive to own than to rent
I'm not ready to settle down in one place
I have too much debt to qualify for a mortgage
I'm self employed so I don't think I'd qualify for a mortgage
My income is too erratic to qualify for a mortgage
I'm not sure how long I want to live where I am
I'd rather live in a loft or industrial space than a traditional apartment, if I'm going to commit to buying
It is too expensive
If you could rent to own the place you are currently in or a place similar to it, but it would cost you 25% more each month, would you do it? (EX: Your rent now is $1000, but your rent to own would be $1250)
Yes, if I knew my rent would not go up
Yes, this is the only way I could ever afford to own a place
Yes, but only if I could sublet as I needed to
No, that is too expensive I can't afford that
No, I don't want to live in my neighborhood for that long
No, I will outgrow this place when I get married/ have a kid
When you see developers come into your once cheap neighborhood, what do you think?
Great, there goes the neighborhood
How much longer will I be able to afford to live here?
Where is the next neighborhood that my friends are moving to?
Time to think about moving away from this city
I wish I coud stay
I have to get out before the baby strollers and starbucks get here, it will be lame then
What kind of debt do you have?
What is your income like?
Self employed, unsteady from month to month
Self employed but steady from month to month
I live by the grace of the gig economy, but it is working pretty out well

Yes, but only when I go somewhere
