The National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) has been a champion of home ownership rights and opportunities for more than a century. Helping consumers become more informed, responsible home owners is important to the stability and value of the housing market – and your overall enjoyment of your home.
NAR is North America's largest professional association, representing over one million members. We created the Home Owner Action Center to alert home owners across the country about critical legislative and regulatory decisions at the federal, state and local levels that will impact your property values and property rights.
The ability to buy, sell and own property has defined our nation throughout its history. Numerous studies have shown the value Americans place in home ownership. According to the 2010 NAR Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers, first-time homebuyers cite the desire to own a home as the primary reason for their recent home purchase, and in the March 2011 Allstate-National Journal Heartland Monitor Poll nine out of ten home owners say they would buy their homes again. Americans still have a deep attachment to home ownership and see it as the primary avenue for increasing their net worth.
We hope that you will join our efforts and then tell your neighbors, friends and family to join us too.
