The Department of Justice pulled out of its proposed settlement with NAR and President Biden has issued an executive order addressing ‘exclusionary practices’ in real estate. Now, more than ever, NAR will need to exercise its political power to fight off FTC regulations. But how much political pull does the organization really have?

 

On this episode of Industry Relations, Rob explains why he thinks NAR is the weakest it’s ever been politically, discussing how changes to the Code of Ethics harmed the organization’s unity and what that might mean for contributions to RPAC.

 

Greg offers the counterargument that NAR’s record-high membership is a reflection of its political capital, and our hosts explore the concerns professional staff and academics in DC have raised around real estate for the last 20 years.

 

Listen in to understand how the insanity of the 2020 housing market might influence the way the public thinks about real estate and learn what you should be doing to combat potential government regulations or plan for lower commissions moving forward.
