Close Call on City Council Elections

It looks like a lot of people will be voting this year in local elections. The races will be close your vote will make a tremendous difference. Candidates that receive support from RPAC are not selected based on their political party or ideology, but solely on their support of real estate issues. Issues on the federal,state and local level include;

  • Preventing 20-30% down payment requirements
  • Assuring the continuation of the mortgage interest deduction
  • 5-year flood insurance re authorization; creating certainty to thousands of transactions in Idaho
  • Extending Mortgage Cancellation Relief for an additional year
  • Stopping tax on cloud applications, like the MLS services
  • Preventing undue fees and taxes on local homes to keep prices stable

REALTORS® must be politically active. If not, who will take on the responsibility of protecting the values and rights we hold dear? Be assured that someone will—someone who may not value wise business planning and could threaten property owners and property rights.

So, next Tuesday, can we count on you to be one of the first in line to vote?

Or request an absentee ballot and vote early.
