  • “Homeownership is a goal shared by many residents of the United States, both native and foreign born, citizen and noncitizen. For immigrants in particular, making the transition from renter to homeowner represents a significant investment in the United States. With nearly 1 in 7 U.S. households headed by someone who is foreign born, decisions made by immigrants and their families to purchase a home can have a measurable impact on the U.S. housing market.
