Women and real estate

From the feedback I have received since starting this blog, it is very interesting to note how many people particularly took to the post on what women want when it comes to real estate. In fact, I think that is the post that I have received the most comments on without a doubt. It seems that women and real estate are topics, that when combined, spark a great deal of interest. So I thought I’d touch on the topic again.

  

It would seem that being a female and trying to buy property is actually not that easy a task. I have encountered tales of women, and not just necessarily single ladies, feeling they weren’t being taken as seriously as their male counterparts when they have tried to secure finance and want to considering purchasing real estate. As a male, this is an interesting subject because it’s not something most of us men can actually honestly relate to. That’s why when I came across information about a seminar that provided information to single women interested in real estate, I too was interested.

  

One of the key take-outs from a realtor speaking at the event was "Women are too nice. Be rude." I find this interesting. Be assertive perhaps, but I don’t find that being flatly rude gets you that far if the person on the receiving end hasn’t done anything wrong yet. However, this is one female real estate agent’s advice, and who knows, maybe it works.

  

Around 100 people were present to listen to experts speak on the topics of real estate, finance, insurance and legal issues that single women face and it was obvious from the crowd that there is huge interest from single women to buy homes, and in some countries  they are largest growth population in the market. Interesting. Also interesting is that when it comes to real estae, women tend to feel vastly undervalued and underserved. There is also an ongoing perception amongst single ladies in particular that they end up feeling very patronized when they do try to get involved with the property process.

While this could stop some single women from taking the property plunge, the best thing to do is demand to be served in the way you deserve! Do your research, get your paperwork in order and find yourself a real estate expert and a mortgage pro. I of course recommend you chat to your local expert at your nearest Century 21 office to get the ball rolling.

I think female customers want female real estate agents because sometime real estate agents can be very aggressive and domineering; which I think puts many women off.

Is acting as a real estate licensee in Arkansas without a real estate license a felony or misdemeanor?

You will need to check the relevant state laws for Arkansas. Australian law is very different, so unfortunately I am not in a position to comment on what is and isn't legal in the USA.
