Executive Director Newsletter Q4 2023

2023 was a monumental year for the American Property Owners Alliance. We hosted events across the country that connect our members to industry experts and advocated for policies and regulatory changes that unlock more value for property owners and broader access to homeownership.

Housing is at the center of everything we do, and we’re excited to share all that the American Property Owners Alliance has achieved this year, including:

✔️ Holding leaders accountable to protect property rights, improve housing affordability, and end the unethical practice of home equity theft through opinion editorials in The Boston Herald, Dayton Daily News, and AL.com.

✔️ Supporting first-time buyers with new resources including a step-by-step guide to prepare for homeownership and reliable financial education.

✔️ Sponsored events in Dallas, Charlotte, Cleveland, and Montgomery, convening housing industry experts, local leaders and residents for discussions on advancing housing affordability, equity in homeownership, financial education and more.


And we didn’t stop there. We advocated for policy changes like the Neighborhood Homes Investment Act and the Revitalizing Downtowns Act, driving 3,213 messages to Congress. We also encouraged Washington to restore property owner tax credits and expand support for first-time home buyers.

In 2024, we’re committed to supporting current and aspiring homeowners in every way we can. Read more about our advocacy accomplishments in 2023 and see the many ways Congress can support policies that are essential to securing access to homeownership and protecting property owners’ investments.


Make sure you’re tuned in on Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter to see what else we’ve been up to this year and stay up to date on the latest in housing as we head into 2024.

Thank you,

Colin Allen, Executive Director
