Event Description

Master the Dos and Don’ts of Fair Housing Ads to Avoid Legal Jeopardy

Perhaps you’ve heard the adage, “Promote the property, not the people.” This is a good fair housing axiom. But if you’re not well versed in fair housing laws, what you say, what you do, and how you advertise could still land you in legal jeopardy over discriminatory ads. Don’t let that happen to you!

Learn how to protect your interests as you promote clients’ ‘wants and needs’ and market your services in this webinar by fair housing expert and former Realtor® Jo Becker. Becker will share case law, and provide cautionary tales and best practices relevant to real estate sales throughout this session. She will review the federal Fair Housing Act’s 7 protected classes, and apprise you of potential pitfalls and best practice recommendations—such as on targeted and niche marketing, ‘no-no’ lists, use of the fair housing logo, selective use of people’s pictures, and home books and census data.

The material covered in this session will apply to marketing and advertising through flyers, signs, billboards, electronic bulletins, websites, newspapers, newsletters (print or digital), social media, and more.

After attending this session, you will be armed with the knowledge and the tools to market yourself and advertise your properties more effectively without landing in legal jeopardy for discriminatory property ads. You will know how to avoid the potential pitfalls, and use best practice recommendations to achieve better results.
