Remember Fair Housing Month

NAR offers resources to underscore the importance of the landmark legislation on its 46th anniversary.

April is Fair Housing Month, a time to remember the landmark protections offered by the enactment of Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968. April 11th marked the 46th anniversary of the law, which provides equal housing opportunities regardless of race, religion, or national origin. (Gender was added as a protected class in 1974, and people with disabilities and families with children were included in 1988.) 

The National Association of REALTORS® offers a variety of resources to help brokers and agents, as well as state and local associations, reaffirm the commitment to upholding the tenets of fair housing law. These include a poster and fair housing declaration that you can display in your office.

This month, we took a look at how MLSs nationwide are making it easier for practitioners to serve clients with disabilities.
