REALTORS Head To Washington To Advance Key Real Estate Issues

REALTORS are heading to Washington to advance key real estate issues with regulators and members of Congress during the REALTOR Legislative Meetings and Trade Expo.

“To ensure all Americans continue to have affordable access to commercial and residential property ownership and investment, it’s vital for REALTORS to continue the dialogue with regulators and elected officials,” says National Association of REALTORS President Chris Polychron.

REALTORS will work to preserve current real estate-related tax policies, extend the Mortgage Forgiveness Tax Relief Act and to protect commercial real estate related tax provisions, such as like-kind exchange provisions and making permanent the 15-year depreciation period for leasehold improvements.

REALTORS will advocate for legislation that will reform patent demand letters, set nationwide data security standards, and end discrimination against affiliated lenders by passing the Mortgage Choice Act.
