Abstract: This exploratory study identified among apartment and condominium residents: (1) their perceived housing values and satisfactions and/or dissatisfactions with present housing, (2) their housing aspirations and willingness to commit resources to achieve housing goals, and (3) the advantages and limitations which exist in multiunit housing structures they now occupy. The random sample consisted of 100 apartment and 100 condominium residents living in Greensboro, North Carolina, during November, 1975. Data obtained from the self-administered schedules were examined by frequency counts, percentages, t.-tests, factor analyses, and multiple regression analyses. Analysis of demographic characteristics of the two respondent groups indicated that while age, income level, and life style were somewhat different, these multiunit residents were similar in many aspects. Educational levels, size of households, residential mobility and occupation are notable examples.
