Rent Payments in Class B and C Apartments: The Data

Earlier this month, the National Multifamily Housing Council (NMHC) released their rent-tracking data showing that as of August 6, 79.3% of apartment tenants had paid their rent. This is compared to 81.2% the same month in 2019 and an improvement over July 2020’s figure of 77.4%. Note that by the end of the month, all previous months this summer have jumped to just over 95% of tenants paying, which is comparable to 2019.

NMHC Chair David Schwartz had this to say about the recent data: “Over the past few months, apartment residents have largely been able to meet their housing obligations.

Passaic plan encourages repairs for aging homes and apartments in large swath of city

PASSAIC —The City Council has approved a redevelopment plan meant to  entice landlords to fix up the aging multi-family homes and apartments that once housed factory workers’ families.



The area under consideration includes most of the city’s downtown and extends to east of Route 21, known as the Eastside. 

“This area has been the topic of many redevelopment discussions during my administration,” Mayor Hector Lora said. “It encompasses our oldest housing stock and lowest income areas.”

The move fits with existing plans to revitalize crumbling factory buildings and redevelop Eastside lots left fallow when industries declined.

The decision to create a wide-ranging redevelopment zone of some 3,400 properties comes on the heels of a study conducted by the Newark-based Topology firm, which was commissioned by the council in January.
