Gender differences emerge in home preferences

Following the Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus world view, it turns out home buyers do divide along gender lines, but not always in the ways you might expect.

Or so a new survey from ZipRealty.com has found.

Men were more significantly more likely than women to want a room with a view and a bedroom for guests and slightly more likely to be looking for a luxurious bathroom and a dining room; women were slightly more likely to want a garage, ample storage and a large yard, but they also wanted more closet space. They ranked a home office above a kids' playroom.
