In Toronto, there are tons of new condo units being erected every day, and it seems that single women are scooping up the majority of them, according to condo developers.

Because single women have significant buying power, condo developers have changed the way they build their condos in an effort to accommodate their new buyers by paying attention to the amenities, as well as the lifestyle their condos offer.

Single women want condos that are within walking distance of public transit, condo security, not to mention granite and stainless steel kitchens, adequate bathroom storage space and detailed lighting.

And condo developers are happy to accommodate their newfound buyers because, “what appeals to female buyers benefits everyone, according to Tridel president, Jim Ritchie.

Single women, who are averaging 33 years old for their first condo purchase, are more likely to buy a condo unit once it is completed because they like to walk around the place and check out the windows and such.
