The National Association of Realtors will raise membership dues in 2008 as part of an initiative that has a goal to raise $60 million to $100 million in the next three to five years for a variety of projects, including the creation of a technology corporation and a credit union.

The $16 annual dues increase approved by the association’s directors on Saturday would bring NAR membership dues to $80, a rate that would continue through at least 2010.
