REALTOR® Call For Action

realtor party logo

We need your help to tell the United States Senate to get to work and make homeownership a priority!  

Urge your Senators to pass H.R. 3700, the "Housing Opportunity Through Modernization Act of 2016," a bill that makes needed reforms to the Federal Housing Administration condominium loan program, federal-assisted housing programs and Rural Housing Service loan programs.

This bill makes buying a condo A LOT easier by expanding opportunities for first-time homebuyers and streamlining rural housing programs for low-income rental residents. Condominiums are among the most affordable homeownership options for first-time homebuyers, as well as lower income borrowers.

The House of Representatives passed this bill unanimously with a bipartisan vote of 427-0 and now we need the Senate to act!
