Massachusetts Realtors Advocate for Consumers

By
Real Estate Agent with Century 21 Annex Realty

Yesterday saw a large group of Massachusetts Realtors converge on Beacon Hill to meet with their local legislators to discuss real property issues.   One point of this event, that is overlooked or not given enough emphasis, is the full role of the Realtors.

 As one may expect, the Realtors are there at the State House to highlight the point of view on potential legislation from the Real Estate Professional's perspective.   The Realtors are also carrying another banner with them, that of every consumer in the state who will be effected by real property issues.

No one else is there to recommend higher education requirements for real estate licensees, to ask that additional state taxes not be put on property owners when they sell, not impose new state taxes on private property owners when the rent out their home or an apartment, protect landlords and tennants property in an eviction situation.
