This site is about the overreaching political power of the NC Association of Realtors flush with money from cashing in your equity 6% at a time, leaving you to pay for growth with property taxes, year after year, with or without cash flow. In the last few years NCAR has pumped millions of dollars into NC political campaigns at the state and local level. They have spent millions more to defeat Local Options for Local Governments with misleading ads.

Dear State Senator


Dear State Senator

North Carolina has fallen behind in making the necessary capital investments in schools, transportation, water and sewer systems, and basic housing, as well as protecting farms, forests and natural areas. That failure to invest in the future is having a profound negative impact on North Carolina businesses and families.

North Carolina can’t build equity in homes, or expand and recruit business and jobs, with inadequate water and sewer services, poorly maintained roads, overcrowded schools and an unhealthy environment. With proper investments, North Carolina can build a strong economy and maintain a good quality of life. Please support local revenue options for North Carolina’s local goverments such as the proposed Land Transfer Tax or Sales Tax, subject to a vote of the people.

Please write or call your State Senator and please ask your State Representative to hold firm in State Budget negotiations for local government revenue options like the Land Transfer Tax. For more information check out the Partnership For North Carolina's Future and check out our earlier videos:
