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.

Given the proposed increase and the fast-approaching 2018 U.S. midterm campaign season, it’s worth asking: How is NAR spending its lobbying money now?
