Its Unmarried and Single Americans Week according to the U.S. Census. Here is some information about the home buying habits of single men, single women and unmarried couples from the National Association of REALTORS®’ Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers.
Single females made up 17% of home buyers in 2016.
No matter their relationship status, the most common reason people give for buying a home is a desire to own their own home.
Unmarried, first-time homebuyers are the only relationship group, on average, to purchase a home before they turn 30.
