I just got back from a long week in Washington D.C. where I attended the National Association of REALTORS mid-year legislative meetings on behalf of the Fort Collins Board of REALTORS. It was pretty exciting to get to meet with our Senators and Representatives and talk about the issues that will be affecting your purchases and sales of your homes in the future.
It was good to hear that candidates on both sides of the aisle are going to make the Housing market a priority in the coming years. Being able to advocate for keeping the 1031 Tax Deferred Exchange option, Mortgage Debt Relief, and keeping Depreciation Recapture rates lower made me feel like our local issues are at least being discussed at much higher levels!
There was also a lot of discussion about the new Minimum Standards that the National Association of REALTORS will be adopting. This will make it even more beneficial for the consumer to work with a REALTOR as opposed to a non REALTOR licensee since the experience and level of service is so much higher with a REALTOR.
I would love to talk with you more about some of these issues and how they will affect you and your real estate deal, so CONTACT ME and we can setup some time to meet!
