REALTORS® POLITICAL ACTION COMMITTEE

Invest in RPAC Today!

RPAC works in conjunction with the Legislative Committee on local legislation and initiatives that affect homeownership. RPAC members attend Local and State Political Fundraisers, host Phone-A-Thons, and spearhead events that raise money for RPAC in addition to what Members contribute throughout the year. Funds collected are used to promote the election of pro-REALTOR® candidates, both locally and nationally, and to support pro-REALTOR® Politicians and their REALTOR® industry and Homeownership friendly initiatives.

Here are some reasons why:

 

RPAC WORKS AT ALL LEVELS OF GOVERNMENT

70% STAYS AT THE STATE AND LOCAL LEVELS.
Most of the money stays in your backyard for issues like property taxes, yard sign ordinances and disclosure requirements.
 

RPAC IS TRULY NON-PARTISAN

WE SUPPORT THE REALTOR® PARTY!
It’s not about Republicans or Democrats, liberals or conservatives. The REALTOR® Party is focused only on issues that matter to you and your clients.
 

RPAC SUPPORTS OUR CLIENTS AND COMMUNITY

IT’S NOT ABOUT US AS REALTORS®.
It’s not charity, but it’s not self-serving either. Every home sale puts an average of $61,000 into the local economy. RPAC helps your clients livelihood, lifestyles and personal wealth!
 

RPAC IS LIKE INSURANCE FOR YOUR BUSINESS

IT PROTECTS YOU MORE THAN YOU KNOW!
You’ve got insurance for your home, your car and your health, right? Why not your profession?
 

RPAC PROTECTS YOUR RIGHTS

PRIVATE PROPERTY RIGHTS AND PROMOTES HOMEOWNERSHIP
More closings for you by being a champion for you in areas that count.
 

MAKE AN INVESTMENT

YOU CAN INVEST ON A MONTHLY/QUARTERLY BASIS.
Invest the amount that’s right for you and your business. It’s easy, affordable and makes a difference!
 

MORTGAGE INTEREST DEDUCTION AND OTHER TAX BENEFITS ARE COOL

IT’S COOL - SERIOUSLY.
So is the 30-year mortgage, property tax deduction, flood insurance and a bunch of other benefits that make homeownership accessible and affordable.
