Are there more female or male real estate agents in Florida? Which gender lists more homes? Do women’ listings have a higher average list price or men’ ones?
A real estate company, Trulia.com answered these questions as it has analyzed the performance of male and female real estate agents across the country. The findings are very fascinating.
The methodology is interesting. They did a name analysis using a genderized program to separate agents and looked at which gender outnumbered the other, etc. It isn’t an exact science, nor do they claim it is (who knows if Jean is a man or woman?), but it is interesting.
There are definitely more women than men who are in the business of buying and selling homes. In Florida, there are over 25% more female real estate agents than men. Moreover, homes for sale by female agents are 2% more expensive. The average listing price represented by women is $151,313 and by men – $147,914. This percentage is the second lowest in the country. The record was beat by West Virginia, where homes for sale by female agents are 63% more expensive. However, not in all states female agents took the lead. In Alaska, for example, listings represented by men are 72% pricier than by women.
When it comes to the amount of homes for sale per agent, the average number of listings represented by women is 13.8 and by men 15.6. However, this has nothing to do with the actual number of homes sold, just the volume that each agent is listing.
In the Florida real estate market, as we can see women take the cake in the price category, having higher priced listings than men. However, men represent a higher number of listings per agent. Shall we say 1:1? Nevertheless, the question arises: Who sells more?
