NAR Consumer Advertising Campaign
Each year, your Renewal Statement contains a separate line item for the NAR Consumer Advertising Campaign.
The Consumer Advertising Campaign will allow NAR to deliver messages quickly and effectively to consumers and public policymakers about issues that matter to REALTORS® and their clients – issues like access to affordable mortgage financing, tax incentives to home ownership, overly stringent credit requirements and cumbersome short sales and foreclosures.
As you may know, the Consumer Advertising Campaign remains one of the most popular programs among NAR members… 95% of REALTORS® favored the advertising program, and 91% would like to see more NAR advertising that protects homeownership, promotes real estate investment, and advances the REALTOR® profession.
While this line item is distinct from your NAR dues, it is not optional. For more information on the Consumer Advertising Campaign, please visit www.nar.realtor/consumer-advertising-campaign.
