 Why we vote


 Did you know?

REALTOR® PARTY CHAMPIONS are chosen by your local government affairs committee and recommended to the State RPAC committee. Each candidate is asked to complete a profile that covers basic information so that the time allotted for an interview is focused on our issues, not theirs. The committee then rate each candidate based on the quality of their interview and how their responses align with our public policy positions.

 


 

Often the best REALTOR® Champions are REALTORS® themselves

                                           CANDIDATE TRAINING ACADEMY                                            November 2017

That’s the idea behind the Candidate Training Academy. It gives REALTORS® interested in running for political office an introduction to and expectation of how to run for elected office.  It is intended to give candidates a valuable head start in their political journeys and information on how to run successful campaigns.

REALTOR PARTY® FACTS

What is RPAC?

The REALTOR® Party and the REALTORS® Political Action Committee (RPAC) work together to protect and promote homeownership and private property interests. In fact, RPAC is the backbone of the REALTOR® Party. Since its inception in 1969, RPAC has promoted the election of pro-REALTOR® Candidates including REALTORS® like you across the United States at all three levels of government you who have elected to run for office and become  REALTOR Party Champions.  Candidates who receive support from RPAC are not selected based on their political party or ideology, but solely on their support of real estate issues. At our Association we conduct interviews & use questionnaires, to determine our local REALTOR® Party Champions. RPAC is the only political group in the country organized for REALTORS® by REALTORS®. YOU ARE THE REALTOR PARTY® 

100% of your RPAC investment is used to elect candidates at the local, state, and national levels who both understand and support  REALTOR® Issues.70% of your investment remains at the Local & State level while 30% is sent to the national level.

The simple truth is that decisions made by elected official’s impact the business of REALTORS®. That makes it critical to elect candidates who understand the importance of owning, selling and investing in real property. What we do is policy not party, RPAC and the REALTOR® Party work hand in hand to fight public policies that hurt the real estate business and to support those that enhance it.

It only takes a $15 investment to make a BIG DIFFERENCE! INVEST TODAY!

Did you know that NAR and RPAC advocate to the department of labor to include REALTORS® in Association Health Plans which allow self-employed individuals and small employers to purchase health insurance through professional or trade associations?

Did you know for the 1st time in 100 years there will be no tax difference between renting and owning for more than 90% of taxpayers? This is due to doubling the standard deduction, which greatly reduced the value of the mortgage interest and property tax deductions as tax incentives for homeownership. (Congressional estimates indicate that only 5-8% of filers will now be eligible to claim these deductions by itemizing.) (You can view the full report on www.NAR.REALTOR/Taxreform)

Did you know that RPAC fights to promote the long-term reauthorization of the national flood insurance program? So you and your clients aren’t left under water. NFIP extended until July 31st 2018 NAR Research shows a potential loss of 40,000 home sales each month should the program lapse.
