NAR’s Transforming Neighborhoods Program
The Transforming Neighborhoods Program was designed to help local REALTORS address the challenges facing communities today. From declining housing stock and affordability to natural disasters and commercial disinvestment, today’s neighborhoods are facing many challenges. The program is a partnership between NAR and the Counselors of Real Estate Consulting Corps, which provides analysis and actionable recommendations. The goal is to create healthier, more vibrant neighborhoods.
Through this program, NAR is supporting an effort to revitalize an area of Newburgh, New York. The program is part of a larger effort known as ‘Creative Neighborhood’ and aims to bring new residents and businesses to the area. The program will focus on a neighborhood north of the SUNY Orange campus. The NAR hopes to make this an attractive neighborhood for buyers and residents alike.
New Jersey’s 14 local boards/associations
In New Jersey, membership in the REALTOR(r) organization begins at the local level, with local boards serving as an important liaison between members and the national organization. Each board provides services unique to its geographic area. The following are some of the benefits of membership in a local board. Read on to learn more. And remember, the more local boards you belong to, the more resources you’ll have to help you find and purchase a home.
For example, the Meadowlands Board of Realtors recently merged with the Eastern Bergen County Board of Realtors, making it the third largest association in the state. The merger was spurred by new “core standards” developed by the National Association of Realtors. The two boards, with more than 3,300 members, came together on July 1 under the new banner. Both boards have similar goals, including improving the quality of real estate education and networking.
