NJ Realtors® Weekly–April 5

Top Story of the Week

Fulfill Your Fair Housing CE Requirement

In honor of Fair Housing Month, NJ Realtors® is hosting A Conversation on Fair Housing on April 27 at 10 a.m. with NAR Director of Fair Housing Policy & Programs Alexia Smokler. She'll cover the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination, the Federal Fair Housing Act, lawful income discrimination, advertising, and more.

Reminder: The NJ Real Estate Commission mandates real estate licensees complete 12 CE credits every two years to maintain their license. All CE credits for the 2023 term must be completed by April 30, 2023, to avoid a $200 late fee.

One fair housing credit will be awarded to those who attend the April 27 event for the full amount of time and participate using the polling and/or Q&A features. Register here.

NAR Asks HUD for Appraisal Discrimination Clarification

With little legal clarity surrounding appraisal bias, the National Association of Realtors® sent a letter to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development asking for practical guidance for appraisers to apply fair housing principles to their valuations.

NAR hopes to continue its efforts to eliminate discrimination and build tools and educational resources for its members.
