Shortly after the U.S. Senate Republicans released their plan for tax reform, National Association of REALTORS® President Elizabeth Mendenhall spoke out late last week,  urging that homeowners be protected.

“While we are still reviewing the outlines of this proposal, we are watching closely for changes to current law that might leave middle-class homeowners – and homeownership broadly – in a worse place than it is today,” said Mendenhall. “. . . America still believes in the promise of homeownership. Tax reform should reflect that belief, and as we continue to examine this proposal, that’s exactly what we’ll look to see.” Read her full statement.
