NAR Releases Talking Points for May Legislative Meetings

The 2023 REALTOR® Legislative Meetings are scheduled for May 6 -11. During these annual meetings, our national advocacy efforts will focus on improving access to homeownership, increasing housing Inventory, and streamlining affordable housing programs. In addition, this year you can join thousands of your fellow REALTORS®, members of Congress and other housing industry partners from across Washington for the 2023 REALTOR® National Block Party at Nationals Park. Registration for the May meetings is now open.

REALTOR® Priorities Include

  • Incentivize more owners to sell their homes by increasing the maximum amount of capital gains a homeowner can exclude on the sale of a principal residence.
  • Attract private investment for building and rehabilitating owner-occupied homes.
  • Incentivize the conversion of unused commercial buildings to residential and mixed-use properties. 
  • Create incentives for housing provider participation in the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program.
