Diana Bull, Broker Associate with Sterling Properties attended the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) 2012 Issues Conference in Miami, Florida. The focus of the Issues Conference was to plan NAR’s strategic and political direction for the upcoming year.
According to Diana Bull, a veteran NAR Director for over 20 years, “The National Association of REALTORS® is working hard to protect the American Dream of home ownership. This means making our voices heard by government leaders, policymakers and Congress as they enact laws and write regulations that impact the real estate industry.
Specifically, NAR will be focused on protecting the Mortgage Interest Deduction, extending the Mortgage Debt Cancellation Relief for homeowners in trouble, preserving the capital gains exclusion on the sale of residences, and maintaining the property tax deduction for homeowners.
Our goal is to strengthen housing and real estate investment and ensure that the dream of home ownership is available now and for future generations.”
