Fair Housing Month – Appropriate Advertising

Whether you are a landlord, a property manager, or a REALTOR®, it is important to properly word your advertising so that you are in compliance with Fair Housing Advertising laws and ethical guidelines. To be in compliance, you need to advertise the property and not describe the people you want to reside in the property.

See this Word & Phrase List. Though it is not ALL inclusive of the do’s and don’ts in wording your advertising, it certainly provides a good guideline for you to follow.

My Code of Ethics and promises I make to you

Embodied in all I do both personally and professionally, I adhere to a code of ethics that opposes discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status sexual orientation, gender identity, and national origin. In addition to my adherence to anti-discrimination, I also promise to go ABOVE and BEYOND for you!
