“I Do” to Homeownership – Not the Wedding

First comes love, then comes – keys to a home?

According to a recent survey released by Coldwell Banker Real Estate LLC, 82% of unmarried Americans would rather invest in a home than pay for an expensive wedding.

With the average marriage age being 32 years old, it’s no surprise that younger (and older) Americans are striving for a home before putting a ring on it. The survey also showed that 45% of respondents aged 18-44 were more likely to say a home was the most important financial goal for them.
