What is RPAC?

The REALTORS® Political Action Committee (RPAC) is a non-profit, non-partisan organization whose purpose is to provide financial assistance to the election campaigns of qualified candidates.

The PAC receives voluntary contributions from REALTORS®, REALTOR® ASSOCIATES and others interested in the rights of private property ownership. The record, program and quality of candidate determine who gets PAC support. It supports local elected officials and also contributes to candidates for state and federal office.

Community Involvement & Outreach

Grants, Technical assistance and resources to enable your Realtor Association to become a leader in your communityin three key areas - diversity, housing opportunity, and smart growth. 

Why Advocacy?

    • Help our members be successful REALTORS, brokers, and affiliates.
    • Strengthen residential and commercial real estate. 
    • Make home ownership more attainable for consumers. 
    • Improve the quality of life in our communities.
    • Provide value to our members from an association standpoint. 
    • Demonstrate value as Volunteer Leaders and Staff. 
 

REALTORS® are business people and know that the best way to do business is to maximize return on investment. So, how does RPAC help a REALTOR®’s business? 


CONSIDER THIS:


  • National Flood insurance: Passage of the 5-year reauthorization will bring certainty to real estate transactions in more than 21,000 communities nationwide where flood insurance is required for a mortgage.

  • Mortgage Cancellation Relief: This full Senate package will extend the mortgage relief provision for an additional year. The package also includes a relief provision to limit the impact of the Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT) in ’12 and ’13 and renews the 15-year cost recovery for leasehold improvements through 2013.

  • Short Sales: NAR-supported legislation was passed in August 2012 that issues new guidelines to enhance and streamline the short sale process. This includes changes such as increased hardship eligibility, a fixed arm’s length affidavit, alignment of deficiency waiver policies and improvements to property valuation guidance.

That’s money back in your pocket and added back to your business’ bottom line. RPAC is an investment; your investment in your business.
