Nearly 32,000 single women Under 35 became homeowners in 2013 while homeownership among males dropped by more Than 3,000 young single ladies are on the hunt… for a house! According to fresh Census data, 31,540 more single women under the age of 35 became homeowners in 2013.Last summer, single women younger than 35 were the only age group to lag behind single males in homeownership. Well, watch out gentlemen, the ladies are catching up! While more single ladies became homeowners last year, the ownership rate among single men actually went down: 3,070 fewer single men under 35 owned a home in 2013 than in 2012. As of 2013, 23.1 percent of single women and 28.9 percent of single men under 35 owned a home. The increase in female homeowners could be due in part to ladies’ stronger sense of urgency in response to rising prices and mortgage rates. Redfin’s Buyer Survey in February found that 59 percent of single women said rising prices and mortgage rates last year made them feel an “increased urgency” to buy a home, while only 53 percent of single men felt that way.Nevertheless, these ladies aren’t making snap decisions, Venti said. “My young single female clients tend to evaluate their decision very closely and negotiate aggressively. They are more thorough and cautious than any other group I serve.” Congrats on your new homes, ladies!

"When my husband and I were looking for our first home together, and we weren't sure where to look, Elisa Jirone helped us to not only find a home, but to figure out what we wanted in a home (she gave us options from Mansfield to Allen and helped us narrow). She then made the process easy by guiding us through it step by step. Elisa was efficient, anticipated our needs ahead of time, linked us up to as many online resources as possible and was fun to work with. We are talking about our next home and she will definitely be our first call when we decide to move. We highly recommend her to anyone and everyone!"
