Single Women are Moving Up and Moving In


Women are no longer waiting for a ring before purchasing a starter home. According to the National Association of Realtors, single women make up one-fifth of home buyers and one-third of all condominium purchases.

A study conducted by Mathew Greenwald & Associates for Sears Roebuck proved that owning a home gives women a huge emotional boost. Close to 57 percent say they take more pride in their homes than in their careers. And 61 percent of these female homeowners say they enjoy repairing and maintaining their home. This study also asked these women if they rather get an hour’s worth of free advice from home repair authority, Bob Vila, or relationship expert Dr. Phil. More than twice as many women chose Vila. I love it!

More women are postponing the search for Mr. Right and taking the plunge into homeownerville.
