Four equal installments will be applied to your credit card: first, on the day you enroll; followed by, October 15, November 15, and December 15. The Order Summary screen will still reflect the full amount of the membership.

Frequently Asked Questions

Did the renewal amount increase?

The ARA Board of Directors approved a decrease of $5 in the local renewal amount for the year 2019.

In a major move to keep REALTORS® positioned for success into the future while ensuring NAR no longer needs to use reserves to cover expenses, the National Association of REALTORS® approved a budget that sets NAR dues at $150 + $35 consumer advertising campaign special assessment per year, per member, beginning in 2019. That’s a $30 increase to support NAR’s S.M.A.R.T. Initiatives programming.

Do I have to invest in RPAC?

Your renewal invoice online includes a voluntary RPAC investment which is strongly encouraged, but is ultimately voluntary. Please note that RPAC saves the typical REALTOR® approximately $25,000 each year and, without RPAC, you would be paying significantly more in operating costs annually. The RPAC flier posted on the left side of this page explains your benefits in more detail.

As you go through the prompts to pay online, you have the ability to modify and/or remove the RPAC amount (you'll see an edit link next to the RPAC amount) just before you input your credit card information.
