In 2017, 60% of women millennial buyers were single. In 2018, single women accounted for the second-largest group of home buyers, behind married couples (National Associated of REALTORS®). As a woman, buying a home has traditionally been embedded in our minds as the next step AFTER you get married. Times have changed, and so has the real estate industry.
Buying a home is a huge investment, but it provides stability and adds to your net worth. If you are paying the same amount in rent as you would in a mortgage payment, it makes sense to invest that money into a home that you could get your money back on in the future.
If you’re worried that a home may be too much of a commitment with your active lifestyle, travel schedule, and/or job, rest assured that you can have it all. Having a realtor on your side will ensure that not only will you find the perfect house, but that the process is an exciting and fulfilling experience.
