Shouldn’t that self-help book be renamed…
Men are from Alaska
Women are from Mississipi
….or at least those are the states where each gender dominates the real estate market.
Trulia’s (crazy-interesting) Insights blog takes a look at men versus women (real estate agents) and patterns they show. In this battle of the sexes a state by state gender analysis was made for price difference and number of homes for sale using their Trulia Pro agent membership and a gender name analyzer to best guess who is what.
- Woman dominate the real estate agent profession with all 50 states having roughly 48% to 64% more female than male agents.
- After adjusting for the lopsided differences in gender, women tend to have more higher priced listings.
- After adjusting for the lopsided differences in gender, men have more total listings.
Curiously, no metrics were included about whether the toilet seat is kept up or down.
