April is Fair Housing Month

The sale and purchase of a home is one of the most significant events that an individual will experience  in their lifetime. It is more than the simple purchase of housing, for it directly impacts the hopes, dreams, aspirations, and economic destiny of those involved. It is for this reason that the Fair Housing Act and other federal and state laws were enacted to guarantee a right to a national housing market free from discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, disability, familial status, and national origin.

Despite a wide range of housing opportunities throughout Arizona, the doors of homes, apartments, mobile homes, and condominiums are closed to many because of illegal discrimination. Complaints to and testing by fair housing organizations in Arizona indicate that discrimination is a common practice, frequently undetected by home seekers who are unlawfully denied access to housing. You have the right to expect that housing will be available to you without discrimination or other limitations based on race, color, religion, sex, disability, familial status, or national origin.

For information on fair housing laws, or contact information if you suspect discrimination, please see the attached brochure.
