Why NAR?

Home Buyers and Sellers

How NAR Represents Consumers’ Interests

From educating consumers about the housing market to supporting private property rights, NAR enables more Americans to achieve and protect the dream of homeownership.


Why Use a REALTOR®

Smart home sellers realize they need the expertise of a REALTOR® in the sales process. And only REALTORS®, who are members of the National Association of REALTORS®, follow a time-tested Code of Ethics, where other real estate licensees may not.

NAR Defends the Mortgage Interest Deduction

NAR stands in opposition to the President's Advisory Panel on Federal Tax Reform, which may recommend converting this century-long deduction into a tax credit. Reducing the tax benefits of homeownership could endanger property values.
