Are Men and Women Different in Buying a Home?

Surprise! Men and women differ in home-buying process!
 
It often seems as though men and women are from different planets, but every day millions of couples navigate through day-to-day and even life-altering decisions. Coldwell Banker Real Estate LLC surveyed 1,000 individuals to discover how much men and women differ in the home-buying process.
 
Below are some key highlights from the Coldwell Banker Real Estate study:
 
Women may be inclined to make up their mind more quickly than men ...
* When asked how long it took before they knew their home was "right" for them, almost 70 percent of women had made up their mind the day they walked into the house, vs. 62 percent of men. Conversely, significantly more men needed two or more visits: (32 percent of men vs. 23 percent of women).
 
Women would rather live closer to their extended family than to their job ...
* 55 percent of women find it more important to be closer to their extended family (those that do not live in their household) than to their job, compared to only 37 percent of men.
 
A home's security is a deal-breaker for both men and women ...
* 64 percent of women said that if they found the home of their dreams but had concerns about its security, they would no longer be interested. More than half of men agreed (51 percent).
 
Couples say that no one "wears the pants in the relationship" in terms of major financial decisions ...
* When asked who wears the pants in the relationship (when it comes to major financial decisions, such as purchasing a home), almost 70 percent of respondents living with their significant other said it's actually mutual.
* However, 23 percent think that they, themselves, wear the pants in the relationship, not their partner. More men than women said this (26 percent vs. 20 percent, respectively).
 
Men and women agree on how they would use a spare room, for the most part ...
When the respondents were asked how they would use an extra 12 x 12 room if it could be anything they wanted, men and women agreed on the top three most popular, and very practical, responses:
* Bedroom: 25 percent
* Office/Study: 15 percent
* Family Room/Den: 11 percent
