Buy Herself

Women are a force to be reckoned with in the real estate market. 
20% of all homebuyers last year were women compared with 12% of men. 
This doesn’t surprise me since women are usually so well organized, really know what they want in a home, and make it a haven. 
Women are earning and saving more money than ever before in our nation’s history.  They are getting their credit in order and getting informed of the home buying process to make their American Dream come true.  

The top 3 Factors Women look for in a home include:
  1.  Safety:  Security is paramount to the female buyer, over schools & community features. 
  2. Low Maintenance:  More time to spend with friends & family
  3. Move in Condition:  Don’t have the time to do it (or the patience)
I purchased my first home as a single 27 yr. old.  It felt exhilarating to buy on my own at such a young age.  Not to mention, the value appreciated about $10k in six months.  It served my needs, was low maintenance with a great pool & tennis courts and a one car garage.  I painted rooms, added personal touches and enjoyed.  Two years later, I sold it for a $40k profit!  Not too shabby.  I knew what I wanted, and I went after it.  You can do the same.

The top 3 leading demographic factors that have opened up the real estate market for women include:
  1. Women Marrying Later
  2. Divorce
  3. Women Live Longer than men
In new home construction, builders are responding to this trend by installing extras such as security systems, gourmet kitchens, low maintenance yards and larger walk-in closets for all of those shoes that were just too good to pass up. 
Buying a home on your own is a huge accomplishment and will provide you with a great sense of confidence and self-worth.  Not to mention, you can finally paint that bathroom pink like you’ve always wanted.  
Don’t wait for Mr. Right.  Save money and provide for yourself.  The sense of pride you’ll feel is priceless.  If home ownership is your dream, call me, I’m here to help you make that a reality.
