The Ultimate Aphrodisiac: Buying a Home?

By

Paging single men and women out there who want a date. CNN just released today a survey stating that women prefer to date men who own a home versus men who rent. And men feel the same way. 

"In a survey of 1,000 single people, more than a third of women and 18% of men said they would much rather date a homeowner than a renter." This survey was conducted by Harris Interactive for real estate site Trulia. 

It is also interesting but not surprising to know that "both sexes also clearly prefer it when there's no roommate in the picture; 62% of survey respondents, men and women, prefer to date singles who live alone."

Ergo, if you are single and looking for a serious date, buy a home soon!!! It may not be in time for this year's Valentine. There will always be next year. Give yourself an EDGE against competitors.

Great info and it makes perfect sense. When looking for a mate most people are thinking about stability and owning a home, most times is indicative of that. Great post!

What a great post for today! I would not have considered puting aphrodisiac and buying a home in the same sentence, but is sure does make sense. Thank you for sharing with us.

Hi Diane: You hit it right. Homeownership gives a perception of stability. I could not agree more with what you said.

Thank you.

That may be the most creative advertisement I've heard in a while. Well done! Maybe you can think of different ways to utilize it for the extra mileage.

Interesting article Having a place to call your own does offer you sense of achievement and fullfillment.  Regarding the article some may feel that the homeowner is more committed , in it for the long haul; while the renter could bail at the end of the lease or before and the only thing their out is the security payment.

Hello Jill: I will ponder on your advice. I am a big fan. BTW, congrats on the column.

Hello Michelle: The thought of homeownership gives us a sense of pride and security. You are quite correct with your statement that renters can transition any time after the lease quite easily compared to a homeowners.

Hello SIB Realty: It is great to see sunshine from the sunny side Florida.
