Fair Housing Act Turns 50

Fair Housing Act Turns 50

Realtors celebrate 50th anniversary of the Fair Housing Act

WASHINGTON – Jan. 11, 2018 – In 1967, many homebuyers signed a document at closing swearing they would never sell their new home to African Americans. But in 1968, the Fair Housing Act brought fairness to the real estate market and changed everything for a number of minority groups.

Realtors commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Fair Housing Act this year, noting that a number of specialized Realtor groups now exist that represent protected classes in the Act (as amended in 1988) to ban "discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, disability, family status, and national origin.

Always good to see the eras of the past corrected.

Just thought I would pass this along...
