Real estate is one of the most secure financial investments so it is the best bet to invest your money in. You also get home ownership rights and create an asset that adds to your wealth portfolio. The new generation believes in being financially independent before trying to settle down, so you have more people staying single for a longer time. Single home buyers are no different from couples but they need to consider a few more things before making a property investment. The first thing they have to focus on is their financial capacity and the resale values of their property keeping in mind the job transfer and matrimony which requires relocation.
The number of single woman home buyers has increased in the past years as compared to men. According to a survey done in 2014 first time home buyers are more likely to be single females as compared to males.
