The National Association of REALTORS® has issued an important call for action to REALTORS®.
The goal: Urge Congress to pass legislation that will reauthorize the National Flood Insurance Program before it expires July 31.

Why should REALTORS® care about NFIP?
The NFIP enables property owners to purchase flood insurance where required for a federally related mortgage and there’s no private market alternative.
NAR estimates that up to 40,000 home sales per month could be in jeopardy if the program lapses.
Unfortunately, Hurricane Harvey showed us firsthand that flooding isn’t just a coastal issue in Texas. It can happen anywhere due to melting snow, severe weather, and rising water.
It’s more important now than ever that your members of Congress hear from you.
