Step Aside Guys – Women Increasingly Dominate Real Estate

Here is today’s news from the research arm of the NAR …

More than twice as many women purchased a home for the first time in 2009 than men, according to a survey by the National Association of Realtors (NAR).

Should we consider this to be solid evidence of continued strides towards greater financial independence and decision making capability for 21st century American women? One would certainly have to think so. As more economic opportunities for advancement present themselves, women are clearly stepping up (and forward) to grasp the potential inherent in their lives. How does this steady shift in female independence affect the society at large over time? In my opinion, strong and capable women make better wives and better mothers because they make better partners and set a better example.
