How do we get Congress to Listen?
RPAC saves you money… Banks in Real Estate: Congress passed legislation in 2009 to permanently keep banking conglomerates out of the real estate brokerage, which saves the typical REALTOR ® $5,400 annually. Conforming Mortgage Loan Limit Increase: Legislation that increased the Fannie and Freddie conforming mortgage loan limits increased the earnings of the typical REALTOR® by $6,250 last year over and above what would have been the case without the increase in the Fannie/Freddie loan limits.
