Realtors® Call on White House to Host Housing Summit

0

Washington, DC – August 25, 2011 – (RealEstateRama) — To help develop policies that will stabilize the nation’s housing market and support an economic recovery, the National Association of Realtors® urges the White House to host a summit of policy makers, industry leaders and government stake holders focused on revitalizing the nation’s housing.

“As the leading advocate for housing issues, Realtors® know that home ownership supports our nation’s economy,” said NAR President Ron Phipps, broker-president of Phipps Realty in Warwick, R.I. “Housing and home ownership issues affect all Americans, which is why we need strong policies that will help stabilize the housing market and lead the way out of today’s economic struggles.”

A housing recovery is key to America’s economic strength, and NAR wants to make sure that proposed legislation and regulatory rules or changes to current programs and incentives don’t further exacerbate problems within fragile real estate markets across the country.

A broad discussion among all stakeholders about what needs to be done to put the housing market and economy on a path to recovery could provide valuable recommendations and solutions to promote responsible, sustainable home ownership and stabilize and revitalize the housing industry and economy.

“Realtors® look forward to coming together and working with President Obama and his administration as well as our industry partners to design a housing recovery plan that will serve our nation, its 75 million home owners and indeed all Americans today and into the future,” said Phipps.

The National Association of Realtors®, “The Voice for Real Estate,” is America’s largest trade association, representing 1.1 million members involved in all aspects of the residential and commercial real estate industries.
