Policy Positions

The Reading-Berks Association of REALTORS® focus on local public policy issues that impact the real estate settlement process, the rights of real property owners, and the cost of housing. Priority issues for the Association include: resale use and occupancy requirements and inspections; sign ordinances that impact real estate marketing; residential real estate disclosure issues, and transfer tax ordinances. In addition, issues such as land and water use planning, inter-municipal cooperation, urban revitalization, and open space preservation are monitored by the Association.

In an effort to educate the general public, government officials, and the real estate industry, we have included organizational policy statements on this site. If there are any questions or comments, please contact R-BAR Government Affairs.
