    Females Are Making It a Priority to Invest in Real Estate!

    Everyone wants a place to call home; a place that gives them a sense of security. We are currently seeing major interest from females who want to achieve this dream, and the numbers are proving it!

    In 2018, for the second year in a row, single female buyers accounted for 18%of all buyers. In 2017, 60% of millennial women listed as the primary borrowers on mortgages were single.

    According to the 2018 Home Buyer and Seller Generational Trends Report by the National Association of Realtors, one in five homebuyers in the U.S. were single females (most of them part of the baby boomer generation) as you can see in the graph below:

    This does not come as a surprise since 50.8% of the U.S. population is female and 15.6% of them are 65 years and over, according to the Census Bureau.

    What are the reasons for this demographic’s booming interest in homeownership?

    Bankrate published an article with what they believe to be some of the reasons:

    • Divorce rate: Known as the “Gray Divorce,” the divorce rate has doubled for those ages 50 and over and tripled for those ages 65 and over.
    • Average life expectancy: For women it’s 81, four years longer than men.
    • To build home equity: Women want to build equity through their home. As mentioned by Bankrate, “some are hoping to escape rising rents, some might be downsizing or looking for a new start,” especially those going through a gray divorce.

    Are they only downsizing and buying small homes?

    Not really; The Institute of Luxury Home Marketing recently stated that:

    The number of female billionaires grew faster globally in 2017 than the number of male billionaires. This redistribution of wealth has seen an impact on luxury real estate both in its purchase and design attributes – and obviously, this is important for realtors to recognize when relating to their clients.”

    Bottom Line

    Whether you are a millennial who wants to buy a starter home, a billionaire looking for that luxury home you’ve always wanted, or maybe even someone who just went through a gray divorce, let’s get together to help you create your real estate portfolio so that you can start investing your money in real estate today!
