  NAR: Housing Equality, Commercial Recovery Are Top Priorities  

With racial equity at the forefront of American consciousness, the National Association of REALTORS® will focus the bulk of its policy priorities this year on improving equal access to housing, association leaders said last week during NAR 360, a Facebook Live event serving as the unofficial kickoff of the virtual 2021 REALTORS® Legislative Meetings.

Earlier this year, NAR put its efforts into securing favorable real estate provisions in the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan, a new round of COVID-19 relief legislation. Now the association is turning its attention to closing the widening racial homeownership gap and broadening fair housing protections for the LGBTQ+ community, among other priorities.
