Fair Housing Resources

Fair housing is more than a list of dos and don’ts, rights and penalties, and mandatory continuing education. As stewards of the right to own, use and transfer private property, fair housing protects our livelihood and business as REALTORS® and depends on a free, open market that embraces equal opportunity.

Following the troubling results of a newspaper’s fair housing investigation last year, NAR wants to ensure that all members have the tools they need to promote fair housing and guarantee all people are treated fairly and equally in their search for a home.
