Improve Your Love Life: Own a Home

If you're looking to spice up your love life, buying a home might be the way to do it.

In a recent survey by Trulia, more than 1/3 of women said they would rather date someone who owns a home rather than rent. Nearly 20% of men agreed.

Roommates can also be a deal-breaker in the dating world: 62% of people questioned said they prefer dating people who live at home.

The takeaway from the survey is this: In addition to building wealth and stability, home ownership can also help your love life significantly.

Well, that's another take on why it's good to be buying a home right now...that and being savvy enough to recognize the pivotal buyer's market moment (and they don't last, remember!).
