Fair Housing Program

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.

NAR provides a number of resources to keep associations up to date on the latest fair housing information for REALTORS®.  For the latest information on fair housing, visit our Fair Housing page. State and local associations can apply for NAR's Fair Housing Grants to help their members learn more about fair housing.

Do you ever get frustrated because attempts at working with others seem to get bogged down with the same issues?  Whether you’re taking part in contentious negotiations in a real estate deal, trying to merge two different brokerages, or working on bringing disparate groups together in a committee or association context, it’s important to learn how to bridge common divides.

That's Who We R

The campaign ads rally consumers to "Look for the R" for reassurance, resources, and reliable guidance on their path to property ownership.
