At a gathering of local real estate agents, Long Beach broker Sonia Moncayo said she loves selling to single women, as one herself. But more than that, it’s just good business.
“They have money, they have savings, and they are happy with their own home,” Moncayo said.
Single women are the largest group of homebuyers after married couples, making up 15 percent, according to the National Association of Realtors. And that’s got the industry increasingly interested in promoting female homeownership.
Moncayo, president-elect of the Los Angeles chapter of the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals, said she plans to shift more attention to women homebuyers under her tenure.
