Single women continue to buy
Single women are outpacing single men when it comes to homebuying—both nationwide and in the metro Boston area. Here’s more on this group of buyers:
- A recent LendingTree analysis found that 12.3% of single women own homes in the metro Boston area‚ compared to just under 8% of single men.1
- When totaling ownership among the country’s 50 largest metro areas‚ single women own roughly 1.5 million more homes than single men.
- Properties located near public transportation are popular among single women‚ according to one Boston area loan officer.
- Single women frequently take advantage of first‑time homebuyer programs that help with down payment and closing costs.
