Morning Minute: REALTORS® push to protect Mortgage Interest Deduction

REALTORS® worked to ensure language supporting the Mortgage Interest Deduction (MID) was included in the Republican Party platform as it readies for the Republican National Convention next week.

The move is a “clear victory for home buyers, home owners, and the economy, because it specifies that Republican lawmakers favor the retention of MID,” writes Robert Freedman for the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) blog Speaking of Real Estate, in the post, “Republican Platform Support for MID a Win for Home Owners.”

In another blog post, “MID Platform Win Shows Impact of Activism,” Freedman spotlights a few of the REALTORS® who had a direct hand in the effort.
