The Hispanic population will account for most of the increase in the U.S. population in the coming years. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, two out of three persons who will be added to the U.S. population from 2015 through 2016 will be of Hispanic ethnicity. By 2060, Hispanics will make up 29 percent of the U.S. population, up from 18 percent in 2014. This demographic shift will have implications on the demand for and supply of housing, as well as on employment, education, and other services, with varying levels of impact geographically.


In this presentation, Alejandro Becerra, Director of Research of the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals, will discuss the latest findings from the 2016 State of Hispanic Homeownership Report.[1] Mr. Becerra will discuss trends and issues affecting Hispanic homeownership, including factors that affect homeownership such as educational achievement, employment and income, and cultural preferences, among others.


Prior to joining NAHREP, Mr. Becerra held several prestigious positions where he sought to advance the interests and societal contributions of the Hispanic community: Senior Housing Fellow, Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute; HUD Deputy Manager of Field Operations, Arizona; Director of the Peace Corps, Paraguay; and Commissioner, Montgomery County Human Rights Commission.


Mr. Becerra has a Masters in economics from The Institute of Latin American Studies at the University of Texas at Austin. He also took a certificate class on Global Financial Crisis at the Yale School of Management. Mr. Becerra’s full CV can be accessed here.
