Urgent Flood Insurance Update

NAR will be issuing a Call for Action asking Congress to support HR 2874 to reauthorize NFIP. NOMAR and the Louisiana Congressional delegation oppose this bill, as it has provisions that would be harmful to the Louisiana housing market. We are asking you to disregard or delete the email and/or text alert when you receive it. Stand with NOMAR and our Louisiana Congressmen and DO NOT take the Call for Action.

Hurricane Safety Tip

You should make a list of licenses repairmen in case your property or listings sustain damage. Having this list prior to sustaining damage can help speed up the repair process.
