Women are More Likely to Become First Time Home Buyers

 

Women more likely to be first-time homebuyers             in the next two years: RBC Poll
 
Among Canadians who plan to buy a home within the next             two years, women are more likely than men to be first-time             homebuyers (49 vs. 35 per cent), according to the 19th Annual RBC Homeownership             Poll.
 
The             annual survey found purchasing habits have shifted with more women             entering the housing market, income levels, changing demographics             and lifestyle patterns. 
However, women are             being more cautious than men, weighing cost, affordability and job             security before buying a home.
Of the             Canadians polled who have recently become first-time homebuyers, men             and women were tied (47 per cent) in saying affordability was the             biggest concern that prevented them from purchasing a home earlier.

Whatever your client’s specific             circumstances or concerns, I              provide tailored advice on all aspects of financing a home             purchase and will give your clients the confidence to take the next             step in their goal of home ownership.
