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.

Top Shelf Spending

$892,987.07 - is the latest total for spending by the NC Association of Realtors in the quixotic attempt to defeat local revenue options for local governments. In a lobbying report received today, at the Secretary of State's Office, the NC Realtors reported spending $74,213.26 in the month of August. In addition to the usual retainers to Campaign Connections and Public Solutions about 25% of the spending was for newspaper ads, another 25% for radio/TV spots while a combined $10,095 was spent on polling and phone-calls.

The NC Realtors are so concerned about the North Carolina economy they decided to go to South Carolina for their annual convention in Myrtle Beach. They'll be there for the next few days so don't worry if they're not picking up the phone fast enough. They have to down the margaritas first.
