However, financial costs, emotional barriers, and a lack of knowledge about financing options can be significant obstacles, according to a recent Freddie Mac survey of potential renovators and homebuyers.

NCJAR 2023 Committees:

Hosted by the NCJAR Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee

Presented by Irma Gorman, Director Paterson Housing Authority & Carolyn Vasquez, Section 8 Administrator

Section 8 of the Housing Act of 1937, often called Section 8, as repeatedly amended, authorizes the payment of rental housing assistance to private landlords on behalf of low-income households in the United States.

Section 8 is a lawful source of income. Learn from our experts. This information is important for all Realtors to understand, not just for those doing business in the city of Paterson. (Rental guidelines are issued by HUD and are separated by county/market area - but information applies uniformly)

During this presentation, we highlighted NJ's 2023 market forecast and the latest real estate legal issues. The recent rise in inflation, rising interest rates, and concerns about a potential recession have impacted buyers and sellers, causing many to stay on the sidelines. Lawrence Yun, Chief Economist at the National Association of Realtors, believes that the worst is over.
