    Abstract

    The objective of this paper is to analyse immigrants' transition to homeownership in Spain from a life-course approach, utilising homeownership as an indicator of the integration process. We use data from the National Immigrant Survey that allows for a longitudinal analysis of this transition in Spain. Results have shown strong differences in homeownership depending on immigrant's country of birth. The length of stay in Spain, marriage and transnational ties with the country of origin were also demonstrated to be relevant factors in the analysis. © 2010 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
