REALTOR® Call To Action: National Flood Insurance Program

Published Friday, June 22, 2018

The National Association of REALTORS® has issued a Call For Action regarding Congressional re-authorization of the National Flood Insurance Program. NAR, Florida REALTORS®, and ORRA are encouraging all REALTORS® to take action now.

Florida's REALTORS® and real estate market stand to lose the most if Congress does not reauthorize the program:

  • Florida has more NFIP policies than any other state (4 out of every 10 NFIP policies are in Florida).

  • Nearly every Florida REALTOR® either sells property or lives in a flood zone in Florida.

  • Without flood insurance home sales can't close, and our communities are unprotected and at risk.
  • Without the NFIP, 40,000 residential transactions a month nationwide will not happen.
