Single women the next largest buying group after married couples.
Why? Because more single women have their degree than men (38 percent to 31 percent) or are currently in college (45 percent of millennial women compared with 38 percent of men).
According to the National Association of Realtors’ 2015 Profile Buyers & Sellers, the median age of single women home buyers is 32 and the median income is $49,000.
By the way, single men make up the fourth largest group of home buyers, trailing married couples, single women, and unmarried couples.
