Stormwater

Position: The Greater San Diego Association of REALTORS® opposes any effort to mandate stormwater retrofits, upgrades, or disclosure at the point of sale on a residential property. Encouraging private adoption of best management practices for stormwater runoff through incentives and public education can effectively improve the health of regional watersheds while balancing private property rights. SDAR is supportive of the "alternative compliance" process the City of San Diego started utilizing in February 2016 and plans to monitor its effectiveness.

Lead-Based Paint

Position: The Greater San Diego Association of REALTORS® opposes any further point-of-sale mandates related to lead-based paint. Existing mandates are adequate to ensure buyers can make informed decisions about whether to pursue further investigation or remediation through mutual, voluntary agreements with the seller.

Short-term rentals

Position: The Greater San Diego Association of REALTORS® supports the right of property owners to rent all or part of their residences with certain limits. SDAR recognizes that visitor accommodations may present unique challenges, but those challenges should be addressed by targeting the bad actors – hosts and visitors – who interfere with other homeowners' peaceful enjoyment of the neighborhood. The challenge calls for increased code enforcement to stop nuisance behaviors while balancing a property owner's right to generate income from their property. SDAR also believes property managers of short-term rentals should be subjected to the same licensing requirements as property managers of all other rental properties.

Split-roll property tax

Position: The Greater San Diego Association of REALTORS® opposes any effort, either through the Legislature or through the initiative process, to differentiate tax structures for commercial and residential properties. A split-roll system could threaten multi-family properties, thus putting a disproportionate impact on renters. A split-roll system would also deter residential development, further suppressing the housing supply and driving home prices out of reach for even more Californians, and it would force some businesses to close their doors, leading to numerous job losses.
