This post by Ryan is one that should be read by all of us here in Missouri. We will be having some major news coming out at our annual meeting in Tan-Tar-A at the end of the month. I hope that we will be seeing as many folks there as possible.
Thank you Ryan for the post and thank you T. David Rogers for the video.
Missouri Association of Realtors President T. David Rogers issues call to action to Missouri Realtors to support current fundraising events for RPAC to raise funds for lobbying on issues of importance to real estate professionals. Mr. Rogers specifically cites the need to monitor and develop grassroots opposition to future proposals for a 1% transfer tax. In the current market, owner/sellers, purchasers and real estate professionals can ill afford to pay a transfer tax on the sale of real estate. For example, for the sale of a $200,000.00, it means that one party to the transaction would be forced to pay tax on the sale of $2,000.00 thereby artificially inflating prices, reducing the volume of sales, and increasing the number of short sales.
Here is the video from Mr. Rogers:
