Why do we love polls and Statistics?

 

 

Every day we are inundated with polls and statistics telling us how we should feel, and why we should feel that way. I have to ask, “WHO CARES”. I for one am tired of turning on the news and hearing about the next poll. Many years ago, and I wish I remembered who said it, but it makes sense to me now. They said that "polls are the invention of lazy news outlets". It’s easy to hire a company to ask questions and then talk about the poll for days. In my business of Property Management in Orange County Ca. I go crazy when I read things about Real Estate that are just not true, but people look at polls and believe anything.

 

Statistics are the same; we read stats everyday about every aspect of life. How many homes have sold, how many people are eating certain foods, or how many people voted in an election. Now I understand why companies like stats, they want to know where to put their advertising money. The problem is when polls and statistics that people read effect how they behave. Why is that? I think it's no different  than those lazy news outlets, we as people have become so lazy that when we see a poll or stat, instead of doing are own research, we hear a poll and just like sheep we go along with the crowd. With all the opportunity for getting information these days, there is no excuse for going along with the crowd. I love it when people say that they are just too busy, but they will spend hours on their phone checking their Facebook or Twitter accounts.

 

 

Lets look at an example of how to look at a statistic two ways.  If statistics say that 8% of the people who want to work are unemployed, that is a terrible statistic. We can all agree that all who want to work should be able to find a job. But why don’t we look at it the other way that 92% of the people who want to work are working. Now doesn’t that make things look a little different.

You can take any poll and any statistic and make it look any way you want. If you turn on the news today, you will hear about wars, diseases, unemployment and all kinds of other tumult and turbulence. The problem is that you can go back to any period in time and see much worse. I was watching a Columbo ( I love that show) and it was from the 70's. A man in the show had his car radio on and the news from the radio was talking about the unrest in the Middle East. Nothing ever really changes except today we have so much news from so many different sources that it seems like the world is collapsing.

 

In my business of Property Management in Anaheim Ca. I know that people today have it much better then in years past. I was reading this morning as I do every morning the on the CAR (CALIFORNIA Association of Realtor) web site how pending home sales are down. It started me thinking why this would matter to the person thinking about buying or selling their home. Now to me, since I am in the business of Real Estate, this information is interesting and good to know. But to someone who thinks that a move in Real Estate would be good for them, why would they care about the statistics. Now of course if you are thinking about selling, prices going up or down is a concern, but it is only a concern in your area not state wide. If you are buying, it should have no affect on you. If you are ready to buy and all the stars are aligned for you, why should you care about the pending home sales? This comes back to my original point that polls and statistics are affecting the the way people live their lives. I think we have come to a point to where the activity of people is not affecting statistics and polls as much as polls and statistics are affecting the activity of people. Is this really the way we want to run our lives? Why not just do what you feel is best for you and your family and not care so much about how others are living their lives. Forget about polls and statistics and just do what feels right!

What my clients are saying  

5 reviews 5.0 star rating 1/21/2016 I was tired of using a large management team to manage my investment property. I felt I was always on the back burner. I was recommended to Tony from a business associate, he assured me I would be very pleased. Well that was an understatement, Tony is amazing. He's above all honest and always available for my concerns. I'm not as well versed as other investors with property management and maintenance and tenant relations, Tony has been an excellent partner and has guided me through quite a bit of needed repairs and worked far beyond what was expected to help turn my little investment into quite a prosperous investment, If what your looking for is prompt return calls, honest direction and someone very knowledgeable with general contractors and real estate laws, Tony is your man.
