Realtors® Rally on Capitol Hill
Leaders meet with Congressman Pascrell

The Passaic County Board of Realtors® leadership attended the Washington Mid-Year Legislative Meetings in Washington, D.C. this past week.  Tens of thousands of Realtors® ascended to our nation's capitol to meet with their respective congressional delegations to convey legislative priorities concerning the industry. 

These priorities include the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), set to expire September 30th, 2017, the protection of sustainable homeownership -the GSE secondary mortgage market (30 year mortgage), and tax reform including the preservation of current homeownership tax incentives, the mortgage interest deduction and 1031 exchange. 

You may read about the legislative priorities here.

That's according to speakers at a residential real estate forum here at the
2017 REALTORS® Legislative Meetings & Trade Expo.
