You know that REALTORS® help you buy and sell real estate. But were you aware they also help you after you've bought a home, piece of land, or commercial property?
Texas REALTORS® work together to make sure homeowners and other private-property holders are treated fairly by lawmakers and regulatory groups. After all, no one knows the business of real estate better. They can see where improvements should be made and can identify proposals that would adversely affect real estate. They then work on these issues, and property owners reap the rewards.
For example, Texas REALTORS® have fought for legislation that prevents Texans from losing their homes to foreclosure because of late payments to mandatory-membership homeowner associations. They made sure that homeowner protections were included in home equity legislation. They supported bills on homeowners insurance reform that establish state oversight of rates and bring relief from unfair practices by insurers. And Texas REALTORS® have repeatedly led the charge to thwart proposals that would have added thousands of dollars of fees and taxes to every real estate transaction.
So rest assured that someone is looking out for your interests as a property owner. Texas REALTORS®. We're working for you.
