June is National Homeownership Month, and we're taking this opportunity to expand access to TSAHC's home buyer programs. In 2022, 41% of home buyers using TSAHC's programs identified as Hispanic, up from 38% in 2021.
However, despite these gains, we recognize that many Hispanic households continue to face significant obstacles to homeownership. Recent research released by Maxwell.com indicates that limited English proficiency is a barrier for nearly a quarter of Hispanic households, eclipsed only by credit score challenges.
This Homeownership Month TSAHC is breaking down the language barrier by translating our marketing materials into Spanish. Over the next month, we will be releasing newly translated videos and flyers, as well as a podcast segment recorded entirely in Spanish. Our campaign will culminate with a special training for lenders, REALTORS®, and housing counselors on June 21st focusing on opportunities and resources to better serve Hispanic home buyers.
Newly Translated Videos
Earlier this year we released two videos to explain the benefits of TSAHC's programs to potential home buyers. Below are the original videos, along with their newly translated versions.
