REALTORS® Converge on Washington, DC

Governmental Affairs, News No Comments »

I am in Washington, DC at the National Association of REALTORS® Midyear meeting. The electricity of politics is in the air, and although this is one of my favorite tourist towns, instead of spending half a day tomorrow in the Air and Space Museum, I will join my fellow REALTORS® on Capitol hill lobbying our Senators and Representatives. Major talking points:

  1. FHA Reform
  2. GSE (Government Sponsored Enterprises) Reform - You have heard of our quasi-governmental cousins Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, of course
  3. Homebuyer Tax Credits
  4. National Flood Insurance Program
  5. Affordable Property and Casualty Insurance
  6. Small Business Health Insurance

More details, and tourist pictures later… I have to go deep into the ground to catch a quiet, fast train.
