Issues & Candidates

General

Minnesota REALTORS® and MN-RPAC continuously build relationships with elected officials and other housing advocates to create good policies and solid research that will result in the common goal of homeownership.

We believe state policies should not add barriers to homeownership.

Minnesota REALTORS® and MN-RPAC oppose regulations that will:

  • increase the cost of the transaction, which ultimately increases the cost of housing affordability and homeownership;
  • impact the timeliness of the transaction;
  • or negatively impact and/or weaken Minnesota’s homeowners’ private property rights or homeownership incentives.

We are opposed to a government mandate on select individuals (buyers and sellers), especially when the resources are directed away from those individuals.

Candidates

RPAC makes individual political disbursements to: 

1) Incumbents who have demonstrated their commitment to working with and for REALTORS® and

2) Open seat candidates with whom MN REALTORS® hope to build good working relationships. RPAC also donates to legislative caucuses and contributes to gubernatorial candidates.

The primary goal of RPAC contributions is driven by principle: to support and help re-elect candidates who are committed to REALTOR® issues.

The secondary goal is driven by pragmatism: to support candidates who will be elected and serving in positions important to REALTOR® issues.

Based on these two objectives, RPAC is going to be an active participant in this election.
