Why thousands of REALTORS® will be at the state Capitol Tuesday
REALTORS® from every part of Texas are traveling to the state Capitol April 4 to visit with their elected officials. They will discuss issues like property taxes, mortgage finance, and eminent domain. Texas REALTORS® get involved in this manner because they want to make sure our state representatives and senators know how current proposals may help—or harm—Texans. And they want to be part of the process of creating policies that strengthen our economy and protect private-property rights.
How do these efforts impact you? Thanks to Texas REALTORS®’ involvement in government, your property taxes are lower than they would otherwise be, you have constitutional protections prohibiting expensive tacked-on transfer fees when buying and selling property, and our state is starting to address pressing needs with our transportation and water infrastructure.
Rest assured that Texas REALTORS® will be looking out for your interests on April 4 and beyond!
