On Friday, March 8, NAR’s President, John Smaby, NAR's CEO, Bob Goldberg, and other NAR senior staff met with leaders of the National Association of Homebuilders, the Mortgage Bankers Association, and the American Bankers Association to discuss hot button housing policy issues. The group shared its efforts to promote homeownership and discussed ways our associations can work together to advance improvements to housing finance and tax laws in our country.  Important issues include GSE reform, National Flood Insurance Program reauthorization, data security improvements, investment in infrastructure and tax incentives for homeownership.  The group plans to meet quarterly to collaborate on our collective issues.
