First American Deputy Chief Economist Odeta Kushi was interviewed on Yahoo! Finance earlier this month, explaining why women homeownership rates are on the rise and the outlook for the housing market in the year ahead.
“Single women, obviously, do not want to miss out on the wealth-building component of buying a home. And so I think that's a big reason why we're seeing these numbers. We've also seen surveys which show that women are more interested in homeownership or are prioritizing homeownership to getting married and having kids."
