A real estate agent’s vehicle is an integral part of their business and that’s why FCA US LLC (formerly Chrysler Group LLC), the official automobile manufacturer of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®, is offering NAR members AND immediate family members a $500 cash allowance on the purchase or lease of select Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep® or Ram models, and the FIAT® 500L.

NAR in Running for Inman Awards
NAR is a finalist in the Most Innovative Marketing Campaign category of the 2016 Inman Innovator Awards. NAR was also nominated for the Most Innovative MLS or Association award, for its REALTORS® Property Resource online real estate database.

Call For Action on Condo Financing
If you haven’t already, join the tens of thousands of REALTORS® who have responded to NAR’s Call for Action on FHA-insured condo financing. It just takes a visit to the REALTOR® Action Center to send a message urging senators to vote for legislation supported by NAR that would make it easier to buy a condo. The bill, S. 3083, would also streamline rural housing programs and is virtually identical to H.R. 3700, which the House passed unanimously in February. Also, NAR has sent a separate Call for Action to two targeted groups consumers, including condo owners who have participated in past NAR Calls for Action.
