Singles Buying Houses in Tooele UT

Over the last year I have noticed that a lot of singles are buying houses in Tooele UT. singles buying houses

At first I thought it was economic, that on one paycheck the sole owner making the payment had to make sure to get the best value possible.

Then I thought that maybe the attraction was the fact that Tooele County was the only community close to Salt Lake that was eligible for the FDA 100% mortgage.

Finally I examined the possibility that singles were more outdoorsy and were moving to Tooele for the rural  lifestyle and open spaces.

I haven't and probably wont settle on any one of these motivational factors. Singles are moving to Tooele County for ALL of these reasons.

As I think back on my sales over the last few years I need to be content to know that singles are looking out here for a variety of reasons. In other words, I was giving up on trying to find out WHY!

BUT: ..... This morning KCM published a graphic that was even more important than why. It's who.

Check it out. ..... I did, and was I surprised........ Would you believe that:

  • Almost one quarter of the number of buyers were single at the time the property was purchased.
  • Less than 20% of single buyers were first time buyers.
  • First time buyers that were single were around 30 years old.
  • Men earned about 14% more than single women buying for the first time.
  • Single men represent only 8% of repeat buyers.
  • Average age of women that are single repeat home buyers is 58 years old.
  • Less than 10% of single buyers give the reason for buying as 'to be closer to family'.
  • Around 12% of single buyers state Change in family situation as prime reason for purchasing property.
  • Major reason cited by singles for buying was 'desire to own a home of their own'.

Click on the graphic. Find out what I did! And.... If you are single and thinking about whether or not you should buy a home in Tooele. See what is happening around the country.
