NAR Update: Key Issues Before Congress Print

Several issues have emerged in the early stages of Congress that are of critical importance to REALTORS®. Click here for a short summary on each of these issues:

  • Tax Reform, with a possible increase in the standard deduction which could reduce the relevance of the mortgage interest deduction (Legislation projected for late summer, 2017)
  • National Flood Insurance Program Reauthorization, since current program expires at the end of September (Legislation projected for late spring, 2017)
  • Government Sponsored Enterprises Reform, including restructuring of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (No projected legislation start date)
  • GSE Guarantee Fees, with goal of reducing high G-fees (Legislation has been introduced in the House; not sure whether similar legislation will be introduced in the Senate)
Congress is in recess April 10th - 21st. Stay tuned for more updates later this spring.
