A recent study finds there are a variety of factors likely to increase Latino homeownership. Hispanics are now the largest minority group in the country and represent a growing portion of the age group involved in most home sales–26 to 46 years of age.
Part of the challenge is to ensure that the Latino population is not under-served and under-represented in discussions around diversity issues. With the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), mortgage lenders will need to make sure they are providing fair and equal access to credit to all minority groups.
