OYE! effectively tracks, segments, and monitors real-time online conversations allowing clients to make educated business decisions and develop culturally relevant communications with the fastest growing ethnic group in the U.S.
Eric Diaz, CFO of OYE! presented yesterday, April 20th for the Hispanic Association of Real Estate Professionals (HAREP) on the Hispanic homebuyer in the real estate market. It was a packed house, complete with realtors, mortgage brokers, banking officers and more. The data-starved audience craved even more specific insights about the Phoenix/Arizona market and asked for OYE! to return and provide geo-specific analysis as well.
The educational presentation on the Hispanic homebuyer provided by OYE!’s data solution was in line with HAREP’s mission which is: To advocate sustainable home ownership through education and the empowerment of real estate professionals who serve multicultural home buyers and sellers, to advocate for public policy that supports the facilitation of the relationships among industry stakeholders, real estate practitioners and other industry professionals.
Hispanics will spend $180 Billion in mortgages and insurance in 2016 (Geoscape AMDS 2016 data). Real estate professionals need to know more about how both acculturated and non-acculturated Hispanics make home purchase decisions in 2016 and beyond.
This presentation (link below) provides insights into Hispanic interests, questions and more in relation to topics of discussion for Hispanic homebuyers online and via public social media conversations.
