Advocacy

The Realtor® Party is effective at all levels of government because of its grassroots strength. That strength is exhibited in advocacy as well as community involvement. The Realtor® Party works hand in hand with the Realtors® Political Action Committee (RPAC).

National Level

Advocacy Agenda

The Realtor® legislative and regulatory agendas focus on efforts to stimulate, stabilize, and strengthen real estate markets across the nation while protecting the business interests of members. A fundamentally sound and dynamic U.S. real estate market is an essential component of the American economy and fosters vibrant communities in which to live and work.

The National Association of Realtors® represents approximately 25,000 state-licensed and certified appraisers throughout the country. NAR’s Responsible Valuation Policy states that “persons who perform appraisals of real property shall be licensed or certified by their respective state regulatory agency and the appraisal shall be conducted in accordance with standards established in the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP).” 

An appraisal is an important part of the home buying process because it assures the lender the property has adequate collateral to make the loan. NAR closely monitors federal legislative and regulatory issues related to appraisals. NAR has long advocated for an independent appraisal process and enhanced education requirements that allow appraisers to produce the most credible appraisal reports possible.
