Americans and Dream Homes—A Love Story
Sanette Tanaka writes of a new survey by Realtor.com that legitimizes the infatuation between potential home buyers and the objects of their desire: “a survey by Realtor.com shows that falling head-over-heels for a house is fairly common—69% of respondents reported that they have had a home crush.”
The respondents to this survey also trended on gender lines—leading to the conclusion that men and women react differently to their domicile-induced amorousness.
“Women are more likely to crush on home that is out of their price range: 41% of women said their home crush is out of their price range, compared with 30% of men.”
“Men tend to move from one home crush to another: 36% of men said they find a new home crush weekly, compared with 29% of women.”
Tanaka also writes of the downside of a “home crush”—heartbreak. But maybe that’s reading better saved until February 15.
