Welcome to Fairhaven! NAR’s New Interactive Fair Housing Tool

Fairhaven, NAR's Fair Housing Simulation tool

The National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) is committed to making housing fair for all. And yet, many don’t realize the broad scope of NAR’s Code of Ethics and its commitment against all forms of discrimination in housing.

That’s why they recently released Fairhaven, an online simulation and free training tool to help members identify, prevent, and address discriminatory practices in real estate.

With this new platform, learners navigate discrimination in real estate through the perspectives of the agent and the client in the fictional town of Fairhaven. The goal is to close four real estate transactions while confronting discrimination in the homebuying process.


While participating, you are racing against the clock, literally, as you must close your deals in a certain amount of time. The training also includes powerful testimonials from real people who have faced housing discrimination in some fashion. Learners receive feedback throughout each case about the decisions they have made; it is truly interactive.

Get started by visiting fairhaven.realtor to explore the fictional town of Fairhaven and assess how well you are adhering to fair housing principles. We encourage all NC REALTORS® to check out the tool and share it with other agents, brokers, and anyone interested in fair housing.
