Houston’s single ladies are outpacing their male counterparts when it comes to homeownership, according to Lending Tree, an online loan marketplace.
Using data from the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2017 American Community Survey, Lending Tree found that single women in Houston, which ranks No. 36 on the list of 50 cities, own approximately 267,337 homes, while the number of homes owned by single men is 157,255. The gap between the two genders is 7.80 percent.
In San Antonio, No. 18, the number of households owned and occupied by single women is 112,279 as compared to 62,906 owned and occupied by single men for a difference of 9.63 percent.
The gap widens in Dallas, No. 27, where the single females best single males in the Big D by 8.24 percent, with the former at 284,788 homes and the latter at 158,309 homes.
The number of households owned by single women in Austin, No. 45, is 82,343. On the flip side, men own 53,932 homes. The gap in the capital city is 6.51 percent in favor of the women.
Beyond Texas, Lending Tree found that in all of the 50 largest metropolitan areas, single women own more homes than single men.
This trend is somewhat surprising, given the average woman in the U.S. makes only 80 percent of what the average man does.
On average, single women in America own around 22 percent of homes, and single men own less than 13 percent.
