Nearly nine out of 10 REALTORS® are independent contractors and face complex situations when it comes to personal finances. Unique attributes such as fluctuating income, taxing issues, and lack of salary cap require a different perspective.

QuartCentury2018SlideEach year, the New Jersey REALTORS® honors members who have shown a long-term commitment to the REALTOR® organization. Those who reach 25 years or more of membership in the association are inducted into the Quarter Century Club. New members are recognized for this achievement during the NJR® Awards Ceremony at the Triple Play REALTOR® Convention and Trade Expo in Atlantic City each December. Every new member of the Club receives a certificate and pin to honor this accomplishment.

House lawmakers passed a four-month extension of the National Flood Insurance Program today in a bipartisan, 366-52 vote. Action now turns to the Senate. Once the Senate votes, the bill goes to President Trump for his signature. Program authorization expires July 31. About 105,000 REALTORS® sent letters to their members of Congress urging action under NAR’s Call for Action, which will end once the Senate votes. Thank you to REALTORS® for their advocacy on this issue, which affects real estate transactions in more than 20,000 communities across the United States.

NCJARMarketStats.June2018Housing markets across the nation are most assuredly active this summer, and buyer competition is manifesting itself into several quick sales above asking price. While the strength of the U.S. economy has helped purchase offers pile up, the Fed recently increased the federal funds rate by 0.25 percent, marking the second rate hike this year and seventh since late 2015. Although the 30-year mortgage rate did not increase, buyers often react by locking in at the current rate ahead of assumed higher rates later. When this happens, accelerated price increases are possible, causing further strain on affordability.
