“Two out of three female buyers were previously married, though that share drops significantly for younger buyers,” Ms. Drew points out. “They also have lower incomes than unmarried men and married home buyers, but are less apt to finance their home purchase.” Still, the overwhelming buying segment is made up of married couples at 63 percent, but now unmarried women are the second highest buying group (at least when looking at marital status) at 20 percent in the last three years. Unmarried men make up 17 percent of the buying pool. The demographics paint an admirable picture of the group, being older than their unmarried male counterparts, and facing many obstacles, demonstrating their determination to get in the real estate ownership circle. They also have lower incomes and many of them are buying with children in tow (30 percent).
