Let’s Make Homeownership Affordable

It’s time for our elected officials to support practical solutions that make housing more accessible.

First Time Homebuyer

If you’re looking to purchase your first home, it’s time to get organized.

Protect Your Home Equity

Your home is one of your largest assets and will likely play a key role in financing your retirement.


We work in lockstep with state and local REALTOR® associations to raise awareness on real estate policy.

Our mission is to address the tough issues facing local communities, such as chronic housing shortage, rising taxes, and the systemic barriers to homeownership.

St. Mary’s County Excise Tax

St. Mary’s County Commissioners have been planning to move from an impact fee structure to an excise tax on new developments, which will increase revenue by over 350% – a big departure from what officials were referring to as “revenue neutral” when the excise tax switch was proposed. And at the same time, they want to raise property taxes by over 3.5%.

Spokane Housing Affordability

In a package of emergency measures, the Spokane City Council passed the largest package of impact fees in history. From Water and Sewer Hookups to a transportation fee, these moves add over $25,000 to the price of a new home. This hurts everyone, from new buyers to renters.

Eugene Tenant Protections

The council’s desire to help tenants is very much appreciated. But this ordinance is already chilling interest in investing in Eugene, and will further reduce the housing options available for those least able to afford it. It’s tough to be a tenant in this housing market with vacancy at less than 2%.

Impact Fees

SB820/HB1206 makes housing more costly and that much more difficult. Amending the County Powers Relief Act, as the bill suggests, will allow a development fee to be placed on future home owners across the state, pricing many Tennesseans out of the marketplace.
