Affordable Housing: Affordable housing in N.J. nears its 'sunset' As 30-year deals expire, experts fear rising prices

Private developers, who agreed to keep the units affordable for between 10 and 30 years in exchange for the breaks, are being tempted to sell or convert the buildings by soaring condo prices and a hot rental market.
