REALTORS and Rural Housing Officials Work Together to Change Lives
Earlier this month, the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) met with the USDA Rural Housing Service (RHS). During the briefing, REALTORS® learned that the Service is investing in technology updates to streamline loan approvals with electronic application submissions and an automated underwriting system. RHS is also exploring new opportunities to improve workflow and collaboration between field offices across state and county lines.
Seth Task, Immediate Past President of ACAR, serves as the NAR 2015 Federal Financing & Housing Policy Committee Chairman, and said, “REALTORS® are proud to work with RHS because we recognize the uniqueness of rural living and the key role that housing plays in building strong communities. As practitioners, we see opportunities to enhance the RHS loan program and help more families achieve their dreams of owning a home.”
