On February 09, 2023, the News & Observer reported that according to a new study by online lending marketplace LendingTree, single women in North Carolina own about 389,716 homes, while single men own about 283,139 homes. Put another way, single women own nearly 14% of the 2.8 million owner-occupied homes in the state, while single men own just over 10%.
That gender gap is a nationwide trend. Single women own a larger percentage of homes in 48 of 50 states. North Dakota and South Dakota are the only states where single men own a higher share of homes than single women.
Contributing to this trend are single mothers. “About 80% of single parents in the U.S. are single mothers,” said Jay Nelson, communications director for the Raleigh Regional Association of Realtors (RARR).
