This year’s State of Hispanic Homeownership Report tells a story. In addition to the data and research analyzing homeownership attainment among Latinos in the U.S., NAHREP commissioned photographer Adriel Salazar to capture images of real families that purchased a home in Houston, Texas last year. These photos capture a pivotal moment in time and humanize the Latino homeownership journey. NAHREP chose to feature families in Houston because the city was the third highest-ranking market that added the greatest number of new Latino homeowners over the last two years. Overall, Texas continues to be home to the nation’s top opportunity markets for new Latino homebuyers.
La familia is at the crux of multigenerational living among Latino households. Many of us, or someone we know, live with a grandparent, an aunt or uncle, etc. This isn’t surprising. We know anecdotally that Latinos are more likely to live in a multigenerational household compared to other demographic groups, but what does the data actually show? Insights from the State of Hispanic Homeownership Report found that Latinos are among the most likely demographic to live in a multigenerational household, a trend that is increasing as housing affordability worsens.
Carrying on a 20-year-long tradition, nearly 200 NAHREP members attended meetings with 45 Congressional offices on Capitol Hill as part of NAHREP’s Homeownership & Wealth Building Conference annual fly-in. It was wonderful to see so many passionate and driven professionals come together for a common goal – to advocate on behalf of NAHREP’s mission, to advance sustainable Hispanic homeownership. During these meetings, our members shared NAHREP’s 2022 State of Hispanic Homeownership Report and the newly released policy priorities for this year
