Single women own more homes in the US than single men, despite the fact that on average a woman earns around 83 cents for every dollar earned by a man.
One thing single women have going for them over single men: They’re more likely to own their own home. Single women owned and occupied 10.76 million homes to single men’s 8.12 million as of 2021, per LendingTree.
There are definitely single ladies out there getting theirs, but one factor may also be that women tend to outlive men and keep the home they once shared with a spouse—which might be why retirement hotspot Florida has the biggest disparity.
