|MMAR at the Capitol|
More than 250 Realtors including many of Mountain Metro Association’s board members listened to economic overviews, Gubernatorial candidates panel and much more on Wednesday and Thursday last week as part of Colorado Association of Realtors’ Economic Summit and Realtor Day at the Capitol.
It was a packed two-day schedule really highlighting where this market has come and the challenges that face us in the next year. Anti-growth ballot Initiative No. 66 was a big topic of conversation among Realtors and candidates alike. All the potential Governors on the panel agreed that it would certainly not alleviate the affordable housing issues in Colorado and would oppose the measure.
More on that initiative and the Realtor Reaction can be found in the Denver Post article here.
Other key topics included infrastructure, transportation and affordable housing. Each candidate for governor offered their personal take on the situation and hopes for possible solutions.
Tracey Wilson with IPX1031 Exchange offered a thorough breakdown of the tax reform changes, some of NAR and RPAC’s big wins on the tax reform bill and his outlook for the coming year. He expects the inventory shortage will remain constant this year as we see several FED rate increases.
MMAR strives to keep its members informed and invites participation on a state and national level. The Realtor Political Action Committee plays a huge roll in determining the outcome of decisions for homeowners and our industry. Find out more about RPAC here
