Miami Real Estate: Single Women Buying More Real Estate Than Single Men

It looks like fewer women are heeding the sage advice of Charlotte from Sex and the City, who warns single women against buying their own place because “men don’t want a woman who’s too self-sufficient.” “If you own and he still rents, then the power structure is all off. It’s emasculating,” she tells Miranda, who had just bought her first Manhattan co-op. More than a decade after that episode aired, single women seem to have ditched this philosophy and are now “a major force in the real estate market,” according to MSNBC and the National Association of Realtors. The demographic accounted for 20 percent of all home buyers last year, whereas single men only made up 12 percent of the total. Alas, sexist attitudes in real estate have not yet completely disappeared. The MSNBC article (written by a woman) states: “Realtors and builders are taking notice of this trend. In new home construction, builders are putting in extras such as security features, gourmet kitchens and yards with little to no maintenance required.”
