Legislative & Regulatory Priorities

Calls for Action

One of the most effective tools in our advocacy efforts are the voices of each and every one of our members. Calls for Action (CFAs) provide an easy and extremely effective way for members to engage with lawmakers on issues that are important to the real estate industry.

There are no current Calls For Action.

The leading voice for real estate in North Carolina

NC REALTORS®’ advocacy team tracks numerous bills during the legislative session based on legislative priorities established by the NC REALTORS® Legislative Committee.

NC REALTORS® also monitors regulatory issues discussed at the NC Real Estate Commission, NC Appraisal Board and the NC Home Professional Licensure Board.

Addressing North Carolina Housing Crisis

Housing needs in North Carolina demand immediate attention and sound policy to address the lack of housing availability, especially workforce housing. Population growth is exceeding housing production, which is increasing the cost of homes, outpacing salary and inflation increases.

Short Term Rental Regulations

Property owners should not face restrictions on who they are allowed to rent their property to. Local governments should not regulate or place restrictions that limit the duration or location of short term rentals.

Practical Applications of Real Estate Appraisal (PAREA)

More than 1,500 NC REALTORS® are licensed appraisers. Appraisals are an important part of real estate transactions as they determine the value of most peoples’ largest assets. A yet-to-be released new Federal training program has been adopted by the NC Appraisal Board.  With the national scrutiny facing the profession, any program that brings changes should be examined to ensure future licensees are adequately trained to protect the public.
