Politics aside, this is just bad news for your homebuyers.

Howdy ActiveRainers,

Quick question - how do “changes that would make homebuying less attractive” sound?* Yeah, not so pleasant. I know.

Yesterday I came across this headline: “The California Association of Realtors says the Republican Tax Reform Plan will eliminate the incentive for people to buy homes, shrink the middle class, and raise taxes on hundreds of thousands of California homeowners.” *

Irrespective of your political party affiliation(s), this (especially the parts about diminishing homebuyers’ motivation to purchase homes, and increasing taxes on homeowners) is pretty unsettling news, to say the least.

Inventory is already low. Your homebuyers, in particular, should (no, make that NEED to) feel energized and confident, now more than ever.

This news calls for something that’s going to keep your homebuyers consistently pumped, optimistic and encouraged to have faith that their dream home is within reach.
A good suggestion: our new MLS/IDX Search feature that ensures every last accurate detail and up-to-the-minute property/housing data is available to every single one of your homebuyers.

Current customers: if you're ready to upgrade, simply let us know.
Non-customers: if you're ready to take advantage of this, and ensure 100% homebuyer satisfaction - let's get you set up on a free trial.

Feel free to reply either way. I'll be in the office all week. :-)
Tim

What is the objectivity of entity that created the story and the headline? Can their claim be backed up? Is this real news or just someone's personal bias with a thinly veiled ulterior motive?

Absolutely valid questions, Dave Halpern.  

"C.A.R. President Geoff McIntosh. 'The doubling of the standard deduction, coupled with the elimination of state and local tax deductions, such as property taxes, will adversely impact California and its housing market. The average California homebuyer could end up paying $3,000 more a year in taxes under today’s proposal.'"
