MN-RPAC UPDATE

Become a REALTOR® Advocate in 10 Minutes

With the shift from winter to spring, trails and parks will soon get crowed, boats will hit the lakes, barbecue grills will fire up and fill the air with the sweet smell of summer fare, and the real estate market will heat up. Across the board, people are ready to ‘Get Involved’ with the happenings of their local communities.

Another definitive sign of the changing seasons is the increased activity at the State Capitol in St. Paul. Legislators are back to work and discussing everything from regulatory reform to the Mortgage Interest Deduction. As these conversations continue and as we head into the election season, the role REALTORS® play becomes increasingly important.

Being a strong real estate advocate DOES NOT require a large time commitment, but it does require a large time commitment, but it does require taking that first step and following it up with smaller steps in the future. In less than 10 minutes, REALTORS® can take four important small steps that will protect their business, their clients, and their industry.

GET INVOLVED in 10 MINUTES or Less!

2 Minutes: Sign a Call-For-Action. As issues arise on the state and federal level, we need REALTORS® to tell their legislators to stand with real estate. You can receive these Call-For-Action automatically by texting MN REALTORS to 30644. When a Call-For-Action begins, you will receive a text and in less than 60 seconds, you can complete it. We promise- no spam messages. We will only contact you when we need your help!

3 Minutes and $25: Invest in RPAC. RPAC works every day with elected officials who stand up and protect real estate. As the election nears, RPAC will work to get pro-real estate candidates elected on a bipartisan basis, so they can bring their pro-real estate ideas to government and make them happen. Your investment ensures that pro-real estate candidates become our next generation of government leaders.

3 Minutes: Support Minnesota Homes Matter, Minnesota’s on-going advocacy campaign to protect homeownership tax benefits and property rights. Visit MNHomesMatter.com and sign the petition, telling legislators to protect homeownership. Also ‘Like’ us on Facebook!
