Home Ownership Matters

Home Ownership Matters

It’s more important than ever to support responsible home ownership.

  • NAR recognizes the challenges of an attack on home ownership and, in response, launched the Home Ownership Matters campaign.

  • Over the course of eight months, NAR's 2011 Home Ownership Matters Bus Tour travelled through 33 states and visited more than 50 cities.

  • (Updated January 2013)

  • After travelling through 33 states and visiting more than 50 cities across the country, the National Association of Realtors® Home Ownership Matters Bus arrives in Anaheim, Calif., today for the Realtors® Conference & Expo here this week. The bus will be parked on the floor of the Anaheim Convention Center throughout the conference.

  • America needs strong housing policies that ensure a robust recovery and do not further weaken the nation’s housing market. That was one of several recommendations resulting from the bipartisan New Solutions for America’s Housing Crisis forum on October 4 and endorsed by the National Association of Realtors®.

  • Owning a home has had long-standing government support in the U.S. because homeownership benefits individuals and families, strengthens communities, and is integral to the nation’s economy, the National Association of Realtors® said in testimony today.

  • “Today, witnesses before the Senate Finance Committee were in complete agreement that now is not the time to make changes to the mortgage interest deduction. NAR is pleased that a range of witnesses testifying at the committee’s hearing on tax incentives for homeownership reinforced the message Realtors® have been delivering to Washington: do no harm."

  • We need to keep housing first on the nation’s public policy agenda, because housing and homeownership issues affect all Americans, and a housing recovery is necessary for the nation’s economic well-being.

  • Any changes to the mortgage interest deduction now or in the future could threaten recent progress toward stabilizing the housing market, critically erode home prices and values, destroy middle-class wealth accumulation and hurt economic growth.

  • If regulators get their way, many qualified home buyers in Memphis, Tenn., may be shut out of the market very soon. That’s one of the reasons the National Association of Realtors® will be in town this weekend as part of its Home Ownership Matters Bus Tour.
