Single Women Make Up 2nd Largest Home Buying Group

20160608-SingleWomen-STM

According to the National Association of Realtors’ (NAR) 2015 Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers, single women made up 18% of all first-time homebuyers last year, second only to married couples who made up 54% of total buyers.

跟據美國全國房地產經紀人協會(NAR)2015年買家和賣家的個人資料調查顯示,去年所有首次購屋者中單身女性佔了18%,僅次於佔了54%的結婚夫妻。

Whether they are young, single and no longer want to rent, or newly divorced, the amount of single women becoming homeowners greatly outnumbers single males (11%). A survey of recent home buyers revealed some interesting trends about this rapidly growing group:

不管她們是年輕,單身,不想再繼續租屋,還是剛離婚,單身女性成為屋主的數據大過於單身男性(11%)。近期的購屋者調查顯示,這個快速成長的群體一些有趣的趨勢為:

  • Average Age: 32 years old
    平均年齡:32歲
  • Average Income: $49,400
    平均收入:$49,400
  • Single women are more likely to become preapproved for a mortgage in order to know their budget at the beginning of the home buying process and to be able to make a move if they find their dream home.
    單身女性通常都會先拿到房貸預先批准,以便清楚的知道購屋預算,如果他們找到自己的夢想家園,會即刻行動。
  • Many female homebuyers think long-term when considering buying a home, often considering what amenities they may need in the near future.
    女性購屋者在買房子時皆認為是長久投資,會考慮未來可能需要的維修。

“So what do women like best about homeownership? They believe that they are investing in their future by building equity and financial security. They are also very happy to no longer be paying their landlord’s mortgage payment. Being independent and having control over their environment is a key factor.”

“所以女性成為屋主後最開心的事情是什麼?她們相信購屋能建立房屋的增值和擁有財務能力的保障,這是對自我的未來投資,她們也很高興不用再幫房東支付房屋貸款,獨立性和能控制自己的居住環境也是關鍵因素。“

It appears that it is not marriage before mortgage any longer, for either gender. As we reported yesterday, unmarried couples make up 13% of buyers, while single males account for 11%.

看來無論對男性或是女性,先結婚再買房已經過時,正如我們昨天的文章提到,未婚男女佔了買家的13%,而單身男性佔了11%。
