50th Anniversary - Fair Housing Act
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. Fair Housing Makes US Stronger.
REALTORS® firmly believes in equal opportunity in housing. No person of this country should have the right to rent or purchase shelter of choice abridged because of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, national origin, sexual orientation, or gender identity. Furthermore, these rights should not be limited because of existing or desired ethnic, racial, or religious proportions in any defined area.
Fair housing benefits everyone. On the 50th anniversary of the Fair Housing Act, the Bay East Association of REALTORS® is reflecting on the progress made—and the work that still needs to be done—to end discrimination in housing markets and to promote housing opportunity for all.
