There are More Single Women Buying Homes according to this article which points out many women buy for financial independence or for investing in their future. The percentage of single women buying homes was just 14% in 1995 and now is at 22%. Home builders and condo developers have noticed this trend and decorate and provide amentities attractive to women.
Maybe its just me, but I find this interesting. I was one of the 14% in 1995. Glad to have more company now! It was a very good move for me financially and I have no regrets.
