Only 2% of women said they preferred to date a man who rents, while only 3% of men said they would choose a woman who rents over one that owns her home, according to the survey, conducted by Harris Interactive.
Men and women also clearly prefer it when there’s no roommate in the picture (big surprise!); 62% of all men and women strongly prefer dating someone that lives alone.
There was also bad news for the growing number of boomerang kids (young adults who went off to college only to end up back with their folks). Less than 5% of all singles surveyed, regardless of gender, said they would date someone living back with their parents.
The survey also asked which home features were the biggest turn-ons. #1 ended up being a master bath. 64% of men love that private sanctum almost as much as women (75%) do.
Walk-in closets were cited by 55% of men and 72% of women and gourmet kitchens got 51% of the male vote and 62% of the female. Hardwood floors, outdoor decks and home theaters also came in high on the list.
Interestingly enough, hot tubs got a lot less love from respondents. Only 26% of men and 22% of women cited the old standby in the science of seduction as an amenity they would truly want
