Vote YES for Proposition 1

At Women’s Council of REALTORS, we are proud of the fact that many of our members are major investors in TREPAC, Texas Realtors Political Action Committee and know the importance of protecting industry and homeowners rights.

Make sure your vote counts in the upcoming November election.  Vote YES for Proposition 1

What Is Proposition 1?

Proposition 1 empowers you to vote to cut your property taxes and protect your home from additional taxes.  On November 3, voters will vote on Prop 1 and decide whether to amend the Texas Constitution to increase the homestead exemption by $10,000 (bringing the total exemption up to $25,000) and ban real estate transfer taxes – or taxes on home sales – permanently.

Prop 1 helps make home ownership more affordable for seniors, people with disabilities, and low-income families. On November 3rd, support more savings for Texas homeowners by voting YES on Proposition 1 -the Homeowner Tax Relief Proposition!

What Specifically Will Prop 1 Do?

Prop 1 will save you money by increasing your homestead exemption from $15,000 to $25,000. This is great news for Texas homeowners because it lets you keep more of your hard-earned money.

Prop 1 also helps seniors and people with disabilities by giving them much-needed tax relief, and providing them a lower property tax cap, which helps keep their property tax burden low.

Prop 1 will also constitutionally ban real estate transfer taxes, which target home sales as another taxing source. This means that Texans won’t ever be double-taxed on their property.
