$100 more to be a REALTOR? Well Worth It!


This year's Dues Billing is about to go out (due December 31st), and you are going to see a big change - a $100 assessment for all members in logo

While we know this is a big cost for us all, we believe you will find it is for a great reason.

The C.A.R. Board of Directors voted in this assessment at the October Meetings in San Diego. What it will do could be incredible for Californian's

Many established homeowners are unable to move right now because of what their increased property taxes would be if they moved - even if they bought and sold at the same price. This is keeping homeowners in one place longer than normal, and ties up properties that could help first time and step up homeowners if they could buy these houses - affordably, and at market rate.

C.A.R. has submitted an initiative to the Secretary of State that would allow property owners over 55 to move, and keep their lower property tax base, or if they buy up create a blended tax rate that is more likely for them to budget the increase.

The result is these homes can be brought to market for new homeowners to move in, paying the market property tax rate - which increases revenues to the counties and cities for schools, fire, police, and roads.

The older homeowner gets to keep their lower rate, making them able to stay in California, but in a place that better meets their needs.

This is a win-win all around. And voters appear to support this idea as well!

However passing an initiative in California is expensive. Typical ballot initiatives cost between $30 & $50 million dollars in California.

The $100 assessment will raise approximately $20million in 2018. When partnered with other supportive coalition partners that are being brought together right now, and using both NAR funds, and local association support, we will be able to fully fund this opportunity to make a difference in California.
