REALTORS® Rally Around Homeownership

On May 17, 2012, REALTORS® from across the country will Rally to Protect the American Dream in Washington, D.C., as part of NAR’s Midyear Legislative Meetings & Expo that week. The rally itself aims to keep housing  and homeownership issues at the forefront of the nation’s public policy agenda on behalf of homeowners and aspiring homeowners. 

REALTORS® will  unite as one powerful voice in our nation’s capital to remind members of Congress that homeownership matters – to families, communities and the nation’s economies. Issues like the mortgage interest deduction, foreclosures and short sales, affordable financing and available credit don’t just affect people who own a home – homeownership shapes communities and strengthens the nation’s economy.
