Regardless of your political point of view, it is important for all of us to contact our elected officials and articulate our thoughts.  If our industry membership does not respond with opinions, ideas, and positions regarding the crisis, decisions will me made based on the advice and lobbying of others.

Fred -

I don't think any Realtor can disagree with what NAR says.  Will it be enough to turnaround the housing market on its own - don't think so!

Nonetheless, we should all support their initiative.

I agree with the above comment 100% too!

I am wondering if supporting the higher limits will only prop up inflated home prices and prolong the problems we are now having.  The record appreciation as we all now know was unsustainable.  So why try to prop the false prices up?

Jim - with so much inventory on the market that needs to be sold, the values will find their own levels.  The higher limits helps the move-up buyer but they won't overpay.
