Because the people you have asked have had more experience of Maya than Max?
Because the work that the people you have asked are doing is better suited
At the end of the day there are so many factors that you can't just make a
statement that one is better or worse than the other. It depends on how much
experience you have, how much time you can afford to spend re-learning, what
other programs you generally use, what industry sector you are working in,
what kind of work you are trying to do...

Maya isn't that well used among architects (although it works fine) Many of
the benefits of the software stem from its animation abilities, which is not
going to be important for still renders.
If all you are worried about is the renderer & you already know Max, you can
get the Mental Ray connection for Max. Also, the Brazil renderer for Max can
produce very gould results in architectural renders www.spluterfish.com has
a lot of sample images showing what this renderer is capable of.
Do you already use Max? If so, what are the problems that you have with it?
