While women have made extraordinary gains in terms of achieving equality with men, there is undeniably still a wealth gap between women and men. With residential real estate valued at $7.5 trillion in Australia and more than $1.3 trillion in New Zealand, CoreLogic has delved into our extensive property data universe to understand how this wealth is distributed.

Not surprisingly, in both countries we found higher rates of property ownership among men than women. 

Our Women and Property: State of Play  report explores these statistics in detail, highlighting factors that contribute to the overall gender wealth gap. These factors include individual and joint ownership patterns, state and area profiles, and correlation with salary levels.

Cities have higher rates of female property ownership than provinces

Kelvin Davidson, CoreLogic's Senior Property Economist dug deeper into the recent Women and Property: State of Play report. Kelvin found that in New Zealand, properties owned exclusively by females represented 20.3% while the remaining 56.8% of properties had mixed gender ownership.

There's no doubt that having a sufficient income is a fundamental driver of the ability to buy a property. The fact that females tend to earn 9.5% less than males will be at least part of the explanation. Our blog helps to explain how wealth accumulation is associated with property ownership.
