April is Fair Housing Month
Just a reminder, to completely avoid the confusion about what violates fair housing and what doesn’t…just describe the property!!
Penalties: Civil action fines up to $11,500 for the first offense and up to $50,000 for repeated offenses, unlimited punitive damages if the case proceeds to federal court, loss of a real estate agent’s professional license, compensation, etc.
Here are a few articles Fair Housing and MLS, 67 Agreed Upon Words with HUD, HUD – Fair Housing, and NAR’s Field Guide to Fair Housing.
