Mortgage rates in Dallas mostly rose this week. Meanwhile, Dallas women are much more likely to commit to buying than unmarried men.

This week's rates

The benchmark 30-year fixed-rate mortgage in Dallas remained at 3.8%, according to the Bankrate.com national survey of large lenders. The mortgages in this week's survey had an average total of 0.56 discount and origination points. Nationally, the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage was 3.82%.

Single women purchasing homes in Dallas

According to data from the Texas Association of Realtors, from mid-2014 to 2015, single women were twice as likely to purchase a home in Dallas as single men.

Of course, that doesn't only apply to Dallas. The National Association of Realtors found that single women have consistently purchased homes more often than men across the country.

Aw, this was an exceptionally nice post. Spending some time and actual effort to create a great article… but what can I say… I put things off a lot and don't manage to get nearly anything done.|
