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.

Will Bill You Later Anyway

Some realtors don't really have a choice about contributing to RPAC. From a recent email from a North Carolina realtor:

One of the things they do so that they will have 100% office participation for RPAC is that if you refuse to give, they give in your name...then they bill you for it.
Sound familiar? Drop me a line and share your RPAC story.
