Lower Rent and Mortgage Payments

October 20, 2022 / Comments Off on Lower Rent and Mortgage Payments


Whether homeowner or renter — across race, class, and zip code — all of our neighbors in Florida deserve the chance to put down roots in our communities.

But for too long big developers, corporate landlords, property insurance companies, and real estate special interest groups have rigged the rules to hoard ever more profits for themselves, by raising the rent, spiking property insurance rates while denying coverage to the most vulnerable, and making it impossible for many of us to afford and stay in the homes we love. To distract us from their profiteering, these corporate and predatory landlords try to divide us by where we live, what we do, or who we are. These corporate landlords, developers and real estate special interests have put more than 90 million dollars in the pocket of Desantis and other republicans.

From the Panhandle to the Florida Keys, from Orlando to Miami to Pinellas — we care about our neighbors and know that our community is stronger when we all have a home we can rely on. By joining together to vote for making homes affordable, rent stabilization, making property insurance companies and politicians accountable, we can start making sure that everyone has a place to call home, no exceptions.
Our endorsed candidates will restore housing funding that politicians took from the people of Florida and spent elsewhere, investing in homeownership, affordable rental units, climate resiliency, making property insurance companies affordable, and energy efficiency. They will strengthen and expand down payment assistance programs to help more Floridians achieve the American Dream of home ownership.
