Government Affairs

We strive to make it easier for you to help your clients by:
Sign Codes 
Fighting for your right to advertise your clients home. Whether through open house signs, or for sale signs, we fight to make sure you can adequately advertise your listings.
Provide the option of more housing units 
The lack of available inventory in Snohomish County is directly leading to the lack of affordable homes in our county.  Unless more inventory is provided, we face the great danger of no longer being known as a family friendly place to live.  We continue to work with our elected officials to find ways to add quality inventory, while still protecting our environmentally sensitive areas.
Fight the regulatory fight  
So many land use regulations, who can keep track of them all? We do! We monitor every City Council and the County Council to ensure any regulations passed do not become barriers to home ownership.

Member ran - get involved!
Our legislative decisions consist of two joint committees: the Government Affairs Committee, which determines which positions SCCAR will take on various issues; and the REALTOR® Political Action Committee (RPAC), which makes endorsements for political candidates and works on our relationships with our elected officials.

Any member of the association is welcome to attend either committee. We meet every month. Please email if you would like more information or have any questions.
