Where NAR spends its multimillions in lobbying

We took a close look at political candidates and causes that get the most money from the real estate trade group and found some surprises
  • NAR is one of the most powerful lobbying organizations in the country and puts its money where its mouth is in Washington.
  • The trade group spent $64.8 million on the 2015-2016 election cycle, more than nearly any other organization, advocating for tax relief, middle-class homeowners, housing finance reform and other real estate issues.
  • NAR supports many federal candidates who are either pro-Realtor or Realtors themselves.
  • Spending spans both Democratic and Republican parties, and NAR claims to be the "most bipartisan major PAC" but recent stats show slightly more went to GOP candidates.
