Interest on Real Estate
Trust Account Program
Real estate brokers who wish
to contribute to the advancement of homeownership in North Carolina are
invited to participate in the Foundation's interest beneficiary program.
It's a simple way to make a big impact in your community!
Through a partnership between
local banks, REALTORS® and their clients, earnest money deposits received
by participating real estate agencies are placed into a special
interest-bearing account at the agency's participating bank. The interest
earned on these accounts is then donated to Homes4NC, which uses the funds for grants to nonprofit
housing agencies that provide direct services to North Carolinians.
