It goes without saying that 2020 has presented all of us with unparalleled challenges. For our industry, we have certainly faced struggle, but there have also been silver linings.
At a time when the real estate industry needed it most, years of relationship building and investment paid dividends for REALTORS®.
With those relationships, we 1) gained access to unprecedented relief including unemployment assistance and small business loans, 2) Real estate was deemed an essential business by the State of Indiana so real estate transactions could continue during the shutdown, 3) And we have had support at all levels of government, because elected officials are aware of the critical role housing will play in our economic recovery.
There will always be challenges on the horizon.
Relationships will keep burdensome legislation like adding sales tax to commission, off the table. Relationships will help determine solutions to historically low inventory at the right price, type and location to meet demand. And relationships will keep real estate priorities at the forefront.
Thank you to our 2020 Investors for stepping up and recognizing the importance of being at the table. Thank you to our Major Investors for continuing to serve as the backbone of RPAC. We could not achieve these milestones without our investors.
If you have not invested in RPAC before, imagine what an even bigger impact we could make for this industry and your clients.
