Zillow | October 09, 2019

Latin Homeownership Rate is Fastest Growing in the U.S.
According to Zillow research, Latinos are buying homes are a higher rate than the overall U.S. population, beginning to close a gap between the Hispanic and white homeownership rate that has tripled since the start of last century. Affordability and racial inequity combined to compound a disparity throughout the past 12 decades. The typical Latino household in the U.S. earns 75.7% of the typical white household income, and the typical Latin household wealth is only 12.2% of the typical white household wealth. That means Latino households carry a far greater share (64.7% vs. 38.1%) of their wealth in their home, which made those families harder hit when home values nosedived during the Great Recession.

"Our quarterly and yearly market reports have always been a big hit with our members. The key insights provided in each one provide invaluable advice on how to pivot and grow our businesses as real estate investors," said Alex Soares, President of the platform. The detailed reports are an important way for investors to discover new opportunities and make strategic decisions regarding the year ahead. 2020 was a historic year because the US navigated the coronavirus pandemic. The residential real estate industry thrived as historically low mortgage interest rates led to unprecedented demand. Strong market conditions have extended into 2021. While mortgage rates have crept up a bit, the market is still red-hot and pricing wars are commonplace. During the first quarter of the year, MyHouseDeals added thousands of deals in the following categories: wholesale real estate deals (76.9%), foreclosures (18.1%), motivated MLS deals (4.4%), and motivated seller deals (0.5%). Wholesale land deals dominated the first quarter as the most popular investing strategy for the tens of thousands of active investors who are members of MyHouseDeals. After some number-crunching, the results show that the top five markets for investment property deals in the country are South Florida, Dallas/Fort Worth, Washington D.C., Atlanta, and Houston. These markets, alongside others at the top, will likely remain attractive in the months to come and offer an opportunity for investors to make deals with high-profit potential.
