ATTOM Data Solutions, in honor of Valentine's Day, today released an infographic behind an analysis where it uncovered top metro areas across the nation that saw the greatest difference in home value between single men and single women.

The analysis shows that on average single men owned over 1 million properties with the average value just over $300,000, and single women owned just under 1 million properties with the average value just under $300,000.

"According to the US Census Bureau, women earn 80.5 cents for every dollar a man earns, which in turn gives them less purchasing power when it comes to buying a home," said Jennifer von Pohlmann, director of PR for ATTOM Data Solutions. "Therefore, it's not surprising to see almost a $30,000 home value gap between single men and single women homeowners; however, we do see that in some of those higher valued markets, single women are owning more homes than single men, so hopefully it's just a matter of time before the gender of the housing market values balance out."

Six of the top ten metro areas where single men have the greatest gap in estimated home value compared to single women were in California: San Jose-Sunnyvale-Santa Clara; Santa Cruz-Watsonville; San Francisco-Oakland-Hayward; San Luis Obispo-Paso Robles-Arroyo Grande; Los Angeles-Long Beach-Anaheim; and Oxnard-Thousand Oaks-Ventura.
