I’ve got several single, female friends in their late-20s and early-30s who have bought or are considering buying real estate (mostly apartments). In some cases they’re living in them, while others are renting them as investments. So, this article came as no surprise:
More single women than ever are purchasing real estate in North America, making them the largest purchasers of homes behind couples and edging out single males for second spot. Statistics compiled by the National Association of Realtors in the U.S. show that during 2003, single women purchased approximately one in five homes compared to one in 10 for single men.
Have the prospects for men ever been better? Not only can you date, live with and marry a woman who has a lucrative full-time job, but she probably owns more real estate than you as well.
