From the Desk of Bill Burke, VAR RPAC Trustee: Why RPAC?

WHY RPAC?  Short answer is that it works…year after year it works to protect your profession and the rights of your clients.  In 2016 VA Realtors and their RPAC defeated a proposal to create daily fines of $200 for signs in public right of way; got BPOL tax reformed; there are still approx. 640 unlicensed home inspectors but they will have to be licensed by July 1, 2017-take credit for that when explaining why a client should engage your services. Also take the credit for winning prohibitions against POAs charging property owners because there is a renter in their property (potential savings=$1,200!).  This is just a sample.

This week, the House and the Senate sent each other the bills approved by their Chambers. There were 2,517 bills introduced. Over 200 needed Realtor attention – some supported, some opposed. Realtors continue to monitor. 62 of 75 we are supporting have passed thus far.  14 of 15 we opposed have been killed.

Are you a sideline beneficiary OR are you a professional aware and involved in making your profession and your community great? Invest in RPAC and stay informed.  No sermon, just a thought!
