NAR: We’re in a good place
REALTORS@ are “in a good place,” 2009 National Association of REALTORS® President Charles McMillan says following Sen. Barack Obama’s win in the presidential election and gains made by Democrats in U.S. House and Senate races.
“REALTORS® are excited by this historic election and stand ready to work with our new president and the new Congress on issues that are at the heart of the American dream of homeownership,” McMillan said this week.
NAR says the availability of affordable mortgage financing and affordable health insurance are at the top of REALTORS® priority lists. Those issues, NAR says, are also priorities for Democrats and Republicans.
The REALTORS® Political Action Committee helped more than 400 candidates, with a little more than of half of the money going to Democrats.
On its Web site this week, NAR highlights a few REALTOR® wins in Congress, including Rep. Jerry McNerney, a Democrat from California who “played a key role in Congress to increase conforming loan limits.”
“Rep. McNerney made his mark quickly as a strong advocate for FHA reform, the home buyer tax credit, and expanded homeownership opportunities for veterans,” says NAR Chief Lobbyist Jerry Giovaniello.
