On May 17, 2012, Realtors® from across the country will Rally to Protect the American Dream in Washington, D.C., as part of NAR’s Midyear Legislative Meetings & Expo that week. The rally itself aims to keep housing and homeownership issues at the forefront of the nation’s public policy agenda on behalf of homeowners and aspiring homeowners.
Realtors® will unite as one powerful voice in our nation’s capital to remind members of Congress that homeownership matters – to families, communities and the nation’s economies. Issues like the mortgage interest deduction, foreclosures and short sales, affordable financing and available credit don’t just affect people who own a home – homeownership shapes communities and strengthens the nation’s economy.
Joining Together! Talk to your local Realtor® association to learn about their participation in the rally, and what local issues may influence how people buy, sell and own real estate in your community.
