Support Fair Housing Through Nestfully

Happy Fair Housing Month!  

Every April commemorates the 1968 Fair Housing Act, which established protections against discriminatory housing practices for home seekers—regardless of who they are or where they’re from.  

According to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Act protects against housing discrimination because of race, color, national origin, religion, sex (including gender identity and sexual orientation), familial status, and disability.  

What does the MLS have to do with fair housing? 

The multiple listing service (MLS) operates on the idea that information about homes for sale should be accessible to everyone. By providing an open platform where prospective homebuyers and their agents get a clear and unfiltered view of available homes, the MLS facilitates an equitable housing marketplace that underscores the principles of fair housing.  

How does an open housing marketplace benefit you? 

Whether you’re buying or selling, there are some big advantages to establishing a level playing field. For buyers, it grants full access to homes for sale—so you get the most complete picture of what’s out there and can make the best decision for your needs and wants. For sellers, an open housing marketplace expands your reach, getting more prospective buyers looking at your home and potentially getting you the best possible price—faster.  

Guess what? You’re already part of the solution!  

Did you know that simply by using Nestfully in your home search, you’re promoting the importance of an open, equitable housing marketplace that gives everyone access to the same information about homes for sale? It’s true! Because the listing information on Nestfully comes directly from the MLS, it is fully accessible to all prospective homebuyers.
