The National Association Of Realtors clears up some lies trying to pass as facts.

Pending legislation in the Senate would require an energy license or retrofit for home sales.
This email is FALSE: There is no requirement in H.R. 2454, The American Clean Energy & Security Act, that home sellers obtain either a license or energy audit or make energy retrofits before they can sell their home.

Here are the two REAL provisions in the bill: • Section 202 (Building Retrofit Program) would offer matching grants for home improvements. State government would administer the program, which is voluntary and available to all property owners.

Claim: The health care bill contains a 4.0 percent “transfer tax” on homes sales. An opinion piece in the Spokane, Wash., Spokesman-Review last month FALSELY reported that the health care bill contained a provision for a 4.0 percent “sales tax” or “transfer tax” on the sale of a home.
