By Beth Wanless, Ohio REALTORS Director of Government Affairs The effort to create a First-Time Homebuyer Savings Act program in Ohio took an important step forward with the introduction of House Bill 186 yesterday. The measure, a companion to Senate Bill 24, is designed to allow first-time homebuyers to open a tax-deductible savings account for use toward a home purchase. House Bill 186, introduced by Rep. D.J. Swearingen (R-District 89) and Rep. Shane Wilken (R-91), mirrors the legislation that has had three hearings in the Ohio Senate's Ways and Means Committee. The House Bill has broad, bipartisan support, evidenced by its co-sponsors: Rep. Rick Carfagna ...

Housing providers have special considerations when it comes to their residents. How they can protect them? What precautions should they take? How they can ensure the building is protected and sustainable. This FAQ, updated March 3, 2021, answers those questions . In addition, NAR has published two videos –  The Eviction Moratorium , and   Next Up: Eviction Moratorium and Need for Rental Assistance   – to discuss the eviction moratorium, and to explain what the CDC order means to housing providers and commercial practitioners around the country.

Thanks to NAR's Land Use Initiative program, the Akron Cleveland Association of REALTORS (ACAR) was able to secure a legal analysis of a proposed ordinance that would create a "pay to stay" rental regulation in the City of South Euclid. Based on the legal analysis, ACAR submitted comments to South Euclid's Mayor and City Council. When looking at ordinances, ACAR does so through the lens of the property owner, and that is reflected in the comments.   Similar legislation has also been introduced in Lakewood. Portions of the submitted letter are below.  " On behalf of the Akron Cleveland Association of REALTORS® (ACAR), thank you for the opportunity to comment ...
