After attending the Toronto Ladies Who Launch BYOB (that's Be Your Own Boss for all you who are thinking Saturday afternoon BBQ like I was) a few weeks ago, I have been searching for a blog or website devoted to women owning homes. Thus far, I have been unsuccessful. Does anyone know of a good one?
So, this morning over a steaming mug of herbal tea (because I have again run out of coffee), I decided to document my adventures in this blog. Most of the 'how-to' I have learned has been from friends and family, so I hope to pass some of this wisdom along for others. Afterall , according to Single Women Buy Homes, Too, Elizabeth Weintraub:
- More than one in five home buyers is a single woman.
- Twice as many unmarried women are buying homes than single men.
- Single women make up more than one-third of the growth in real estate ownership since 1994.
Surely, there are more chicks like me out there with burning questions about how to fix everything from a leaky faucet to a leaking basement (yes, I have both) who are not easily finding the answers through Google or Yahoo.
So here we go! Come back often and share this with all your homeowning friends!
