Single women own more of Tampa Bay’s real estate market than single men, according to a new Lending Tree study. The company analyzed 2018 Census data and found that single women are more likely to own real estate than their single male counterparts.
Tampa Bay real estate is owned by more single people than married people in fact, a trend which carries throughout Florida. Nationally, single women own about 5.1 million homes, compared to 3.5 million homes owned by single men. And if you tally the nation’s 50 largest metro areas, single women win that race too, owning 1.5 million more homes than single men.
