Singles in Miami have something to celebrate this Valentine’s Day, according to a recent study conducted by Apartment List. Analyzing survey data from more than 20,000 single renters across the U.S., the renting platform recently determined the best and worst metros for dating in 2020.
Single buyers have been on the rise in recent years, which is why the dating scene in Houston is an important one for agents to keep an eye on.
Overall, Miami came in No. 41, with just under 26 percent of respondents reporting “dating satisfaction.” However, men and women differed greatly in their viewpoints. Men ranked Miami No. 6 for dating while women had a much lower opinion of their options, ranking the city 25th.
College-educated singles ranked Miami toward the bottom for dating at No. 40, but non-college grads fared much better, ranking Miami the No. 10 city for dating.
North Port, Deltona, and Lakeland, Florida landed as the three lowest-ranked metros for dating satisfaction. Of the 86 metros surveyed, these three areas were the only metros on the list with a dating satisfaction score lower than 10 percent. According to the report, aging populations and renters migrating to larger Florida metros like Miami might be worsening the dating pool in such spots.
The metro rankings incorporate ratings from both heterosexual and LGBTQIA respondents. Renters who are married or in a long-term committed relationship were excluded from the study.
