2017 Legislative Session
Last summer we charted an ambitious plan to take our industry to the next level. Key to this plan was our growing partnership with the Minnesota REALTORS®, who shared our vision that housing could and should be elevated. Following the November elections, we assessed the legislative landscape and developed a collection of proposals to encourage first-time homebuyer opportunities and to create housing affordability for all. We worked through our respective committees and boards, and when 2017 arrived the Minnesota Homeownership Initiative was rolled out and hit the ground running.
