engagement ring Is Buying a Home the New Engagement Ring?UPDATE: Study Now Available Here: The Emotional Impact of Buying A Home with Your Spouse


If you thought spending a few thousand on a diamond was rough, multiply that by 50 or more and you have what is being referred to as the new engagement ring…buying a home.

In fact many married couples considered buying a home together did more to strengthen their relationship than any other purchase.

On Monday, Coldwell Banker Real Estate will be releasing the full results of a very interesting study that shows a growing trend of engaged couples buying homes before their nuptials. Some major media outlets got a preview of the study this week and the video above from Newsy and this video from AOL Morning Rush teases some of the highlights and findings that will be unveiled this coming week. 

Come back to the Coldwell Banker Blue Matter blog on Monday morning to see the full results. I’m pretty sure a few of the findings will surprise you.
