Fair housing is a fundamental human right, and we are dedicated to providing accurate
and unbiased information that promotes fair housing practices. We are committed to

their rights under fair housing laws and regulations.
We support efforts to eliminate discrimination in housing and to promote fair housing
opportunities for all individuals and will work to foster a communities where diversity
and inclusion are celebrated and where everyone has an equal opportunity to access

The National Association of Realtors has produced an extremely informative,
interactive simulation to train REALTORS® to deliver their services without
discrimination. The following “Fairhaven” simulation is one of the best ways to learn to
provide our services in a fair and non-discriminatory way. Please visit the town of
Fairhaven and increase your knowledge and sensitivity to fair housing concerns. It
takes about 1 hour to sell 4 homes and complete the simulation.
Fairhaven is a town every REALTOR® should visit.
NAR launched Fairhaven, https://fairhaven.realtor/home , in 2020, a new fair housing
simulation training for REALTORS® that uses the power of storytelling to help
members identify, prevent, and address discriminatory practices in real estate. Inspired
by real stories, this innovative online experience has agents work against the clock to
sell homes in the fictional town of Fairhaven, while confronting discrimination in the
homebuying process. Learners will also walk in the shoes of a homebuyer facing
discrimination. The training provides customized feedback that learners can apply to
daily business interactions.
Get started by visiting https://fairhaven.realtor/home to explore the fictional town of
Fairhaven and assess how well you are adhering to fair housing principles.
