In short, securing housing is one of the most significant challenges immigrants face. Sometimes, immigrants choose to settle with family on either a temporary or permanent basis. Often they will settle in a particular area because they have family there or because there are people from their home country who can provide a support system and ease the transition. No matter how many people you know, finding a place to live in, let alone a home to purchase, will be difficult.

In an effort to better understand the challenges immigrants face when attempting to attain homeownership, this report examines trends in immigration and homeownership throughout New Jersey.
