What kind of influence could 1 million Realtors have if they all spent a few minutes to contact their legislative representatives about the same key issues? The National Association of Realtors (NAR) has just unveiled its three main legislative talking points for the 2017 Realtors Legislative Meetings & Trade Expo, which starts May 15 and continues through May 20 in Washington, D.C.
- NAR wants Congress to extend the National Flood Insurance Program beyond its September 2017 expiration date.
- The association also wants to ban guarantee fees, place restrictions on energy efficiency loans and "responsibly reform our nation's secondary loan market."
- Tax reform is needed, but NAR says it "must not dilute the current real estate tax provisions vital to the housing market and the economy."
