All food is to be brought to your closest NCJAR location on Friday, June 14, 2019 (10am-3pm)
The first quarter of 2019 provided several disruptive weather patterns that contributed to less foot traffic toward potential home sales. Coupled with low affordability, higher prices and an inventory situation in its infancy of recovering from record lows – not to mention several more days of wintry weather in April – slower sales persisted across most local residential real estate markets. However, buyers are beginning to return in force this spring. For well-priced homes in desirable locations, competition is fierce.

Have a Happy & Safe Holiday Weekend
The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection has introduced a new rule adding new required chemical tests to the Private Well Testing Act. The chemicals, perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (PFOS) and perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorononanoic acid (PFNA), will increase required testing costs by approximately $300. Treatment costs—if requested by home buyers before a closing—could cost an additional $5,000.
Adoption of This Rule by The DEP Will Lead to Decreased Property Values, Delayed Home Sales, And Real Estate Transactions Falling Through in Affected Areas.
On April 27th & 28th NCJAR Members Installed Smoke Alarms Throughout Newark, NJ.
NCJAR has once again joined forces with the New Jersey Red Cross to save lives, reduce injuries, and build resilient communities through the Home Fire and Sound the Alarm Campaign. NCJAR members are supporting the NJ Red Cross by volunteering in the Door-to-door installation of smoke alarms and completion of home-safety checklists and plans in vulnerable neighborhoods.
With the assistance of NJ Red Cross Representatives, NCJAR Members installed 96 alarms, made 26 homes safer, and provided over 97 people with home-safety checklists and plans.
NCJAR provides private CE Courses for your company! NCJAR will arrange the approved instructor, manage registrations, and submit the CE credits to the NJ Real Estate Commission. Many offices enjoy the convenience, low cost, and platform of NCJAR’s Private CE Courses. For a minimal fee and a minimum amount of attendees, offices can complete their CE requirements in just two days. We encourage our members to host the course either in your own office or at any one of our NCJAR office locations in Morristown, Bloomfield, Westfield, or Wayne. We have had much success providing education throughout North Central NJ.
