Spanish Website Launch Strengthens CHFA Connection with State’s Hispanic Markets

Connecticut Housing Finance Authority places homeownership education and support at buyers’ fingertips

Date Posted: Thursday, April 03, 2014
 
ROCKY HILL, CONN. (APRIL 2, 2014) –The Connecticut Housing Finance Authority (CHFA) is pleased to announce the availability of a Spanish-language homebuyer website. Consumers can access the new website by visiting www.hogarchfa.org. CHFA launched the website to better serve the Hispanic markets and increase access to home-buying education and support.
CHFA’s Spanish-language website demonstrates the housing market’s continued focus on Hispanic markets, among others. “We have noticed an increasing demand for our products and services from Hispanic markets,” says Eric Chatman, president and executive director for CHFA. “CHFA’s addition of this website offers Spanish speakers easy access to home-buying education and support in their native language while helping make the process of house hunting and financial approval less complicated,” he adds.
The newly designed website will be mobile optimized, offer mobile search opportunities and provide direct links in Spanish to the most sought-after CHFA products, including first-time home buyer guidance information, access to information on mortgage pre-qualification and qualification, locating a real estate agent, getting a home inspection and preparing for a mortgage closing. The site will also provide direct links to Spanish social media including Facebook and Twitter and printable answers to frequently asked questions.
The Connecticut Housing Finance Authority (CHFA) was created in 1969 by the Connecticut Legislature as a self-funding quasi-public housing agency charged with expanding affordable housing opportunities for the state’s low- and moderate-income families and individuals. CHFA has helped more than 130,000 Connecticut individuals and families become homeowners through its low-interest, single-family mortgage programs. In addition, CHFA has financed the creation of more than 40,000 affordable, quality rental units throughout the state. To date, the combined mortgage financing for CHFA’s single-and multifamily housing programs exceeds $11 billion.
