TREPAC for Commercial Members

TREPAC protects commercial brokers, too? You bet.

There’s a long-held misconception that TREPAC, the Texas Association of REALTORS® Political Action Committee, only benefits residential REALTORS® – but nothing could be further from the truth.

A history of success

Consider some of the ways TREPAC has stood up for commercial interests in just the past few years:

  • Created an exemption from ad-valorem taxation on your vehicle
  • Passed legislation enabling commercial brokers and appraisers to secure a commission with a lien against a property
  • Stopped real estate transfer taxes
  • Defeated efforts to mandate the disclosure of sales price
  • Prevented statewide downzoning
  • Averted lowering the appraisal cap on homesteads, which would increase the tax burden on commercial properties

An eye on the future

The simple fact is that new threats pop up all the time. Indeed, commercial real estate is a favorite target of state legislators and local governments. We would surely face increased regulation, higher taxation, and more restrictions if TREPAC weren’t so powerful.
