Given that we are just a few days beyond Valentine’s Day, it’s probably appropriate that we discuss how love and real estate can make a perfect match.
Realtor.com’s research team recently identified the cities that attract singles with affordable housing and a wide range of fun activities.
The following cities boast 20 to 50 percent more single-owned households compared to the rest of the nation – Atlanta; Birmingham, Ala.; Denver; Indianapolis; Minneapolis; Nashville; Orlando; Pittsburgh; Raleigh, N.C.; and St. Louis.
Also, factoring into the equation, is the fact that median list prices are more affordable for residents in these cities earning the median income and unemployment rates are near or less than the national average of five percent.
“These markets are not simply places with a high number of singles,” said Javier Vivas, a Realtor.com economic research analyst. “What really distinguishes this set are the more favorable conditions singles face when it comes to home ownership. Some of those right ingredients include job creation, rational price appreciation and varied amounts of affordable inventory.”
