Sherman Bridge Lending Steps Up Campaign to Celebrate Women Real Estate Investors
August 20, 2016 (PRLEAP.COM) Business NewsAugust 20, 2016 - Irving, Texas: Sherman Bridge Lending, a real estate brokerage firm, has been funding the success of real estate investors since 2008. Now, as part of their campaign to empower women investors and celebrate their success, Sherman Bridge has announced a new "Taste of the Good Life Women Investor Contest" to take place August through October 2016.
Hosted on Sherman Bridge's website, the contest calls for nominations of women investors who have shown resilience, strength, and readiness to take on the world of real estate investment. The winner of the "Taste of the Good Life Women Investor Contest" will be chosen October 15, 2016, after which they will receive a grand prize of a 4-day 5-night cruise to Cozumel, Mexico. In addition, the top three submissions will be featured on Sherman Bridge's blog in a full-length article highlighting their success stories.
Rules require that nomination submissions must detail the nominee's investment history, and entries can include photos, videos, an essay, or even a PowerPoint presentation. Judges will select the contest winner based on examples of merit, and hope that sharing the winners' stories will encourage other women who might feel hesitant to invest in real estate.
Sherman Bridge's "Invest in Women" campaign comes after nationwide studies reflect, when it comes to investment, men top the market regarding frequency, but it's the ladies who take the lead in profit. A personal investment study conducted by Berkeley's Haas School of Business reported 8.3 percent of females save at least some portion of their income, while males only save 7.9 percent. Likewise, men spent 45 percent more of their savings on investments compared to females. However, despite an investment frequency that is five-times higher than women, male investors earned a whole percentage point less than their female counterparts. This data suggests that, despite significantly less representation in the market, women tend to have more success in their investments and earn higher returns.
Statistics like these are a driving argument for Sherman Bridge, and they aim to encourage more women to become financially secure through real estate investment. Such investments have the potential to build a retirement fund, savings, or outstanding portfolio for these ladies, and Sherman Bridge hopes to provide them with all the guidance and resources they need to invest in their financial future.
