NAR: Why election day was a good day for Realtors

Trade group won vast majority of races it supported, but Realtor issues remain at risk
  • The National Association of Realtors won more than 90 percent of the federal, state and local races it supported this election round.
  • The trade group anticipates Trump's election will lead to less regulation at the federal level.
  • NAR expects a "perfect storm" of legislation next year as Congress takes up bills having to do with tax reform, flood insurance, and reform of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

For the nation’s 1.2 million Realtors, election day was about more than Donald Trump’s selection as our next president. The National Association of Realtors spent tens of millions to support local, state and federal candidates across the country and won over 90 percent of those races.
