How important are single women buyers to the real estate market?
Women drive the lion’s share of home buying decisions. Although women account for 85% of all purchases, according to a study completed by Yankelovich Monitor & Greenfield, women drive 91% of new home decisions. When marketing homes, we should pay attention to what matters most to women. Redfin interviewed 1,000 Americans for their preferences when buying a home and then segmented their responses by gender. Highlights: being close to good schools is 6.6% more important to women than men, the number of bedrooms was 6.7% more important to women than men, and the estimated resale value was 3.6% more important to women than men. In fact the only item more important to men than women was the amount of exterior maintenance.

My wife, Mary, and I had stopped in the NEW Weaverville office days before it officially opened. We were referred to the North Asheville office. Fortunately, the initial contact was with Hayes Martin. We had contacted 3 different brokers with offices in Weaverville and proceeded to interview all 3 in order to choose our broker. Hayes Martin was extremely professional, well-prepared, conducted preliminary research prior to meeting with us, and had full confidence in the value we placed on our home. Despite the unexpected speed of the sale, Hayes keep us informed and relaxed. He checked in with us even when there was nothing specifically to advise us. Excellent service and attentiveness. No real contact with the North Asheville office except an initial phone call to Hayes Martin. Glad we used Beverly Hanks but really glad that Hayes Martin answered our initial call. Hayes deserves a larger share of the broker's fee for his efforts on this quick sale.
