Single women make up the second largest segment of home purchases, with one out of every five homes purchases by a single woman, according to the National Association of REALTORS®. With more than 25 million single women over the age of 45 -- whether never married, divorced, or widowed -- it is making up a growing demographic, according to a recent report by FOX News.
“Single women see homes as more than just a place to live, it’s a symbol of success, and provides roots and security,” says author Jan Cullinance, author of the AARP book The Single Woman’s Guide to Retirement.
These single buyers tend to look for a home that is low-maintenance, with a sizable kitchen, walk-in closets, laundry near the master bedroom, and universal design principles to allow aging in place, Cullinance says.
Some builders are reportedly adding two master bedrooms to help accommodate the 40 percent of single women who choose to have non-romantic roommates, according to AARP.

The Triad Home for over 50 years
I spend a significant amount of time looking for properties to buy or sell for clients that contract with me. My main area of concentration is the Triad area of North Carolina. I have lived in Southeast Guilford County for over 50 years (65 to be exact) and my area of expertise.
I lived in Pleasant Garden in the early 50’s, until we moved to Greensboro. Met my wife Brenda while in Junior High School. She lived in Climax.
So while dating Brenda, It brought me back to Southeast Guilford County. We were married after graduating from High School and made our home in Climax. My wife graduated from Southeast High School and has been a Teacher Assistant at Alamance Elementary School for 23 years.
We have 2 grown sons that grew up in the area and also graduated from Southeast High School.
I also have been an accountant for over 40 years and still do QuickBooks Training and Accounting Consulting. Most of my time is spent dealing in Real Estate. I enjoy doing both because of meeting someone different everyday.
