Miss Independent: More Single Women Own Homes Than Single Men


Who run the world? Single women, apparently. On average, single women own around 22 percent of homes, says Apartment Therapy. A study from LendingTree found that while women make only 80 percent of what the average man does, they still own about nine percent more homes than single men.

Among the energizing location-specific stats:

In New York, single women own 82 percent more homes than men.

In the Los Angeles metro area, women own 77 percent more homes than men.

In New Orleans, women own nearly twice as many homes as men—27 percent vs. 15 percent.
