Mr. Walentas has done so well that he has been able to raise his prices twice. He also sees more married women writing the $60,000-to-$100,000 deposit checks. “It’s the women’s checks,” he said. “It’s not like a dual account — Joe and Suzy. It’s Suzy. I’m amazed.”
Suzy gets her own paycheck. Crikey.
“A woman will say, ‘I’m still saving money in the long term.’ ” said JoAnn Schwimmer, an associate real estate broker at DJK Residential. “They’re able to see the bigger picture, while a guy says, ‘I have to get the best deal.’ ” She said that her female clients who bought four years ago have male friends still waiting for prices to drop.
But here I thought that women are supposed to be bad at math.
Of course, as Ilyka points out, the fact that single women are doing it means that it must be stupid. The post itself is an eye-roll, but the comments are where it really gets good. Apparently, single women owning their own homes is a “girl’s fantasy” because “women are terrible with money.” And why not blame the Jew feminists while we’re at it?
You wanna know what happened to women here in the States? Easy…… The jew feminist movement, once again it was just a giant jew scam. Ask yourself, who really won here, the family that just got bumped into the next tax bracket with the wife going to work? No, both spouses incomes are now taxed at a higher rate, on top of the fact that they now have to pay for childcare.
I’m so glad that these men are so much smarter than me. Before I buy a home, I’ll be sure to check in with them, to make sure that my silly little self doesn’t get ripped off by some Jew. Or feminist. Or worse, Jew feminist with a closet full of shoes.
Read all the comments. Really.
