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.

Please Don't Play Red River Valley

Stormwater run-off is not an abstract concept. Stormwater run-off is not a municipal election. It's what happens when someone upstream doesn't keep the dirt on their own property. Environmental protections may seem like an abstract concept but they are real private property protections that realtors and homebuilders would like to roll back in the name of housing affordability. How affordable is a house when you are knee deep in red mud?

Stormwater Runoff - Asheville NC 7-27-2007
