IREM signs on to coalition letter to stop nationwide rent control

IREM, along with 17 other real estate organizations, submitted a letter to the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) Director Sandra Thompson calling for the agency to reject imposing rent regulation as a condition of Enterprise-backed financing. Instead, we're urging the agency to increase incentives to address the lack of adequate supply of affordable housing to meet the needs of the growing population.

IREM has signed on to several other coalition letters over the last few months. Recent coalition letters include:
