April is Fair Housing Month
On November 18, 2020, NAR launched Fairhaven.realtor — an innovative online simulation training, where agents work against the clock to sell homes in the fictional town of Fairhaven, while confronting discrimination in the homebuying process.
During the training, learners also walk in the shoes of a homebuyer facing discrimination. The training provides customized feedback that learners can apply to daily business interactions.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.Complete the Fairhaven training for a chance to win CASH!
Complete the Fairhaven simulation by the end of April (Fair Housing Month) for a chance to win one of two $100 cash prizes!
At the end of April, VAR will track all members who have completed the Fairhaven training (you don’t need to let us know). The drawing will be held on Monday, May 3.
