TREPAC for Commercial Members

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

How TREPAC has served commercial interests

  • 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

New threats pop up all the time.

Indeed, commercial real estate is a favorite target of state legislators and local governments. Commercial brokers would surely face increased regulation, higher taxation, and more restrictions if TREPAC weren’t so powerful.
