What is RPAC Anyway?
Place introduction text here.
The REALTOR® Political Action Committee (RPAC) is a powerful tool that protects homeowners and REALTORS® every day. Private property and business rights are often challenged by the laws created by our local, state, and national policy makers. From transfer taxes to home rule, supporting candidates who share your views on real estate-related issues makes a lot of sense.
By investing in RPAC, REALTORS® leverage their influence, make our voices heard, and ensure the protection of private property rights by supporting pro-REALTOR® candidate.
Local Issues, Local Impact
REALTORS® work to build relationships in our communities, which includes those with our municipal, state, and federal leaders. We meet with our legislators and share with them issues that may negatively impact private property rights in our own communities as well as ways that can improve them. During the pandemic, REALTORS® worked to ensure they were able to remain essential so that we could continue to help our buyers and sellers. We work every year to defeat bills that would put more burden on property owners and the real estate market across the entire state, such as transfer taxes and mandatory energy scoring.
Some more of the important homeownership issues RPAC has taken on include:
- Protecting the Mortgage Interest Deduction
- Preserving the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage
- Preventing transfer taxes
- Protecting access to affordable mortgage options
- Protecting the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIB)
REALTOR® contributions to RPAC buy us a seat at the table in any important legislative discussion, whether it be locally, at the state level, or federally. There is no National Association of Homeowners, and RPAC is one of the few PACs that directly benefits consumers. RPAC dollars support the REALTOR® Party, which is bipartisan. Our issues are homeowners’ issues, and we are steadfast in supporting private property rights, advocating for issues, and protecting homeowners.
