Why is RPAC important?

Why is RPAC Important?

During the current election cycle, attention has been focused on the large amounts of cash people are raising for their respective campaigns.

More importantly, where is that money coming from?

Well, the answers are simple.  For the most part, their funds originated from people or organizations who favor the opinions and ideology of a specific candidate.

As REALTORS®, regardless of our political affiliation, the one thing we have in common is that we are a part of the REALTOR® party.  That’s why we have the National REALTOR® Political Action Committee (RPAC) to protect our interests and support candidates who publicly support the American Dream of home ownership.

Many of you have generously supported RPAC over the years (and understand the importance of doing so). 

But the work of RPAC and of the REALTOR® Party is important in so many ways, and it can and does actively help us all in our businesses.

Here are a few ways how:

  1. By protecting your business against new regulations and fees. These can become burdensome and expensive if allowed to go unchecked, and it’s up to us to support candidates who will lessen the “red tape” for us and our businesses.
  2. By protecting the property rights of your clients. By contributing to RPAC, you’re helping elect leaders who will protect these rights and will fight to keep homeowners from being unnecessarily burdened by government.
  3. By educating leaders on REALTOR® A percentage of the funds raised through RPAC is used for spreading our message and illustrating how important the real estate business – YOUR BUSINESS – is to the American economy.

There are just a few of the ways contributing to RPAC can help your business locally, and can help further the REALTOR® cause regionally and nationally.

Won’t you consider investing even a small amount today through SCAOR?
