Hello, Texas REALTORS®!

To recognize the National Homeownership Month, NAR President Elizabeth Mendenhall shared the following statement:
"National Homeownership Month is a time to celebrate and promote the modern American Dream of owning a home. Homeownership changes lives and enhances futures, and many Americans see it as one of their greatest hopes. These individuals are counting on the nation's 1.3 million Realtors® to champion and protect homeownership and help make it more affordable, attainable and sustainable. Realtors® pledge to continue to lead efforts to ensure that the dream of homeownership is not only possible, but very real, for any and all who want to achieve it, so they can have a place of their own to make memories, start growing their financial futures, and build strong communities."

Reauthorize the National Flood Insurance Program
The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) will expire on July 31, denying necessary insurance coverage to homeowners and buyers in more than 20,000 communities nationwide. Congress must act now to reform and extend the NFIP.
Take action by urging Congress to extend the NFIP and pass meaningful reforms to ensure long-term viability of the program.
