Help consumers in 22,000 communities nationwide have continued access to flood insurance by taking part in an NAR Call for Action which debuts today.
NAR is asking its members to ask their federal lawmakers to make sure the National Flood Insurance Program does not lapse. If it does, many current and future homeowners could find the cost of flood insurance too high. That could have as serious impact in the real estate market.
Do your part by following directions outlined in REALTOR® Party mobile alerts, emails or by going to the REALTOR® Party webpage to send messages to policymakers. In previous Calls for Action, more than 20 percent of Illinois REALTORS®’ membership has participated.
REALTORS® can also ask their congressional representatives to push for more accurate flood maps and better risk mitigation policies which would help keep rates affordable.
The more REALTORS® respond to the Call for Action, the stronger the message to elected officials.
