When it comes to making home-buying decisions, men and women often have different priorities. A Coldwell Banker survey finds that most women are able to select a home much more quickly than men do.
Almost 70 percent of women need only one visit to a new home to decide that it is right for them compared to 62 percent of men. About one-third of men (32 percent) need two or more visits.
More than half of women (55 percent) believe it is more important to live closer to their extended family than to their job compared to only 37 percent of men. Women are also more likely than men (65 percent compared to 51 percent) to lose interest in the home of their dreams if there are concerns about the home’s security.
