The bus’s final stop in Anaheim wraps up an eight-month trek that kicked off in Chicago in March 2011. The multi-city bus tour was part of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®’ Home Ownership Matters campaign to grow consumer awareness in a number of public policy proposals, government programs, and incentives that could dramatically impact home ownership in this country.

Some of the issues that were and continue to be front-and-center for American home owners include the:

Future of the mortgage interest deduction as an important tax benefit

Availability and accessibility of mortgage financing – how much buyers can borrow through conforming loan limits, if creditworthy borrowers can qualify for a loan, or the amount of down payment future buyers must make

Ability of home owners to obtain affordable flood insurance
