NAR Four Point Stimulus Plan - A Call To Action!

11-13 call to action

On Monday I wrote a post from NAR regarding their Four Point Housing Stimulus program. Today that program came out to us in the form of a Call to Action from the Realtor Action Center. Coincidentally, it was announced on the same day that Sec. Paulsen decided our $700 Billion bail-out package was going to the wrong people by being earmarked for people in trouble on their mortgages and that the money should instead go to buy interest in banks, help banks buy other banks and maybe bail-out GM and/or the auto industry in general so people could at least drive away from their foreclosed homes in a new piece of Detroit steel.


If you got the NAR email, please PLEASE take the 12 seconds it takes to respond. 2 clicks and your voice is heard. It's sad that out of 1.1 million Realtors, the best we can do as a grass roots organization is a measly 7% reponse on something that directly impacts our future. If you didn't get the NAR email you can either logon to Realtor.org or click on the logo below. Once you fill in your name or  your NRDS #, it will automatically select the appropriate Senators and Congressmen for your region. If you're not familiar with the plan, follow my Four Point Link to read the text and explanation of why this is so vital not only to our industry but to our entire economy.

If you've never responded to an NAR call to Action before, please take a moment to respond to this one. The plan will probably never see the light of day because it's simple, straightforward, only costs $100 Billion and would work directly to stimulate the 'BUY' side of the housing equation at a time we need it the most. But if we could get 200,000 or 500,000 or a freakin' million of you to put your mouth where your mouth is - we could make a difference.

Thank you both - there's two more voices heard. If you talk to your legislators they will tell you that if they hear from 2 or 3 constituents on any given issue that's a landslide. If they hear from 200 they sit up and really take notice of what the issue is. When their fax machines and emails get bogged down with 1,000's of responses they know the Realtors are in the house. We actually had one of our state legislators call our local office last year to see if we could call off the alert because his fax machine was so backed up. He voted with us on that issue.

BY the way - you should also know that you can forward the link to people who aren't Realtors. They can simply enter their name and address and it will send their faxes and emails to their appropriate congressmen as well. You can send it out to your contact database, forward it to your prospects, use it as an excuse to call your farm, etc. That does 2 things - shows Realtors are involved in the solution more than the problem and allows us to extend our message and response to potentially millions more people.
