RPAC: Your Best Investment in Real Estate


rpacSince 1969, the REALTORS® Political Action Committee (RPAC) has promoted the election of pro-REALTOR® candidates across the United States. The purpose of RPAC is clear: REALTORS® raise and spend money to elect candidates who understand and support their interests. The money to accomplish this comes from voluntary contributions made by REALTORS®. These are not members’ dues; this is money given freely by REALTORS® in recognition of how important campaign fundraising is to the political process. RPAC doesn’t buy votes. RPAC enables REALTORS® to support candidates that support the issues that are important to their profession and livelihood.


8 Ways RPAC Betters Your Business

$5,025 — amount a homeowner saves on the average sales price of an NJ home because RPAC blocked private transfer fees

$350 — cost to pay a parking ticket if RPAC-supported candidates had not defeated a local ordinance

40 — town ordinances around NJ amended/defeated so REALTORS® can continue to display signs

$53,500 — projected home value loss in NJ if the Mortgage Interest Deduction and real estate tax deductions were eliminated

900 — communities in the U.S. are still assisted by USDA Rural Housing Program, thanks to RPAC

$2,240 — average annual tax savings in NJ as a result of the real estate tax deduction

$2,850 — average annual tax savings in NJ as a results of the Mortgage Interest Deduction

$3,339 — average annual amounts REALTORS® in NJ save when RPAC defeated a proposed tax on sales commissions

Realtors® Political Action Committee (RPAC) promotes political involvement and political support.

As a local, state and national standing committee, RPAC:

  1. Provides funding to political candidates at the federal, state and local levels
  2. Is non-partisan, considering all candidates for support
  3. Focuses on where candidates stand on the issues, not their party affiliation.

Realtor® support of RPAC is essential to the political successes of PCBOR, NJAR and NAR. Realtor® investments help to elect candidates who support the Realtor® point-of-view. The RPAC Trustees screen candidates and choose whom to support in state elections based on input from local associations.
