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.
