We are proud to be Realtors® for many reasons, but one of the most important reasons is that belong to a national organization that is more than 1 million members strong. Why does this matter to home owners?
Realtors® are actively involved in monitoring legislation on a local, state and national level that could impact the dream of home ownership for Vermonters and beyond. Our team at Wallace Realty has been very involved in advocacy, because we care about our clients and customers.
Right now, we are working to urge Congress to re-authorize the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), which is set to expire on July 31, 2018. The NFIP provides critical insurance coverage to those who live in flood zones. Most of us recall the extreme damage caused by Tropical Storm Irene in 2011, and even more recent storms. More than 5 million people throughout the U.S. will be impacted if Congress does not act on NFIP by July 31. Since 1963, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has issued THIRTY SIX flood declarations in Vermont alone.
