NAR is a founding member of the recently formed Housing Solutions Coalition to address the sharp rise in rent control policies and the constraints that housing supply is facing, leading to high prices and many families and individuals feeling squeezed out of their local market.
Rent Control initiatives are sweeping across our country, limiting housing supply and harming both the large-scale and small-scale housing market broadly. Five national trade associations have established the Housing Solutions Coalition in an effort to address this failed housing policy.
The Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA), the National Apartment Association (NAA), the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) and the National Multifamily Housing Council (NMHC) established this Coalition to coordinate with local affiliates/state associations.
The Coalition will provide tools and infrastructure and leverage resources to develop campaigns to push back and offer proven, effective alternative solutions on rent control policies and proposals where they arise. It will serve as a clearinghouse to organize efforts to oppose rent control initiatives, working together on policies and solutions that lead to the creation and preservation of more affordable housing for Americans.
