New Trend! Single Women Are Embracing Homeownership by Storm

In today’s housing market nationwide, not only in North Carolina, more and more single women are becoming homeowners. According to data from the National Association of Realtors (NAR), 19% of all homebuyers now are single women, while only 10% are single men.

If you’re a single woman trying to buy your first home in North Carolina or in the Southport or Oak Island area, this should be encouraging. It means other people are making their dreams a reality!!! and so you can too.

Possible Reasons Why Home-ownership Matters to So Many Women

According to the data, many single women, buying a home isn’t just about having a place to live—it’s also one of the smartest ways to invest for their future. Homes historically increase in value, a great way to build equity and proven way to increase overall net worth. Ksenia Potapov, Economist at First American, says:

“. . . single women are increasingly pursuing homeownership and reaping its wealth creation benefits.”

The financial security and independence homeownership in Southport or Oak Island North Carolina provides can be and really is life-changing. When you factor in the personal motivations behind buying a home, that impact becomes even clearer.

The same report from NAR shares the top reasons single women are buying a home right now, and the reality is, they’re not all financial (see chart below):
