Infographic: What women want from the American Dream


Women, compared to men, see home ownership as more important to the American Dream.

So now, men, you KNOW what women want.

A survey by TD Bank reveals that while 64 percent of women believe  home ownership is essential in defining the American Dream, only 52 percent of men feel the same way.

Furthermore, women are more likely to aspire to  home ownership than men, 66 percent for women compared to 57 percent for men.

TD Bank surveyed more than 1,300 consumers across the U.S. to understand the perceptions and attitudes surrounding home ownership and the American Dream. It examined the attitudes of current renters and prospective home owners, as well as past and present home owners.

“As the home buying market continues to stabilize, our survey tells us that Americans, and women in particular, are looking to buy homes,” said Michael Copley, executive vice president of retail lending for TD Bank.

Women are also more practical about home buying.

TD says 23 percent of women bought their first home because they felt financially ready, compared to 20 percent for men.
