When you read the latest buzz about the rise in single female homeowners in America, what kind of woman did you picture? If you said “successful, educated twenty-something,” you would be wrong. As it turns out, she isn’t even close to 20. She is over 65. Moreover, homeownership among single women is no recent feat; single women have outnumbered single men in homeownership every single year since 1982, the earliest date of available U.S. Census data. Poof. There goes your stereotype.
