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.

Some Realtors Not Opposed to Transfer Tax

From Laura Easthom, Orange County realtor:

Homes have continued to appreciate here very nicely, BECAUSE of how nice it is to live here and the quality of the schools. What do the citizens in the county get in return from the land transfer tax revenue? An Orange County that is going to REMAIN a great place to live, with well- funded schools and parks and a healthier economic picture for the county. And if our area remains this way, then home values will continue to rise and their homes equity will continue to rise.

Who has a real estate license, in elective office, and is supportive of the land transfer tax? Me….Mark Chilton. Moses Carey actually has a real estate license and he, along with other Orange County Commissioners, voted to spend 100K on an educational campaign to learn more about the tax.

Please do not lump all those with real estate licenses into the same category as those espousing “SAY NO TO THE HOME TAX.”
