Each year in the United States we observe National Hispanic Heritage Month, from September 15th to October 15th, by “recognizing the contributions made by Hispanic and Latino Americans in the United States.”
As a form of celebration, we are going to offer you something a little different this month.
We interviewed a few real estate experts and asked the question: “Is the Hispanic community important in the housing market?” So, in place of the written blog, we are going to share those interviews with you each Thursday, between September 15th and October 15th, as part of a series that we are calling “Thursdays of Interviews.”
This week our expert is:
Sam Khater, Deputy Chief Economist at CoreLogic
Is the Hispanic Community Important in the Housing Market?
Absolutely! Hispanics play a large, growing and important role in the real estate market; Particularly in the fastest growing markets, so they are driving demographic growth in the south, and southwest and some western markets, and they are driving many of the real estate markets out there. So the Hispanic community, I think, is an important barometer of the health of the real estate market.
