Osceola County Board of REALTORS® and the entire REALTOR® organization
firmly supports the principle of fair housing for all. REALTORS® in
the Central Florida area are fully committed to complying with the
fair housing laws because there is no room in our profession for housing
The federal fair housing law prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, familial status and handicap.
Many local real estate brokers and sales associates are taking proactive steps to guard against housing discrimination. More and more are realizing they cannot remain "neutral" in situations involving any party who attempts to discriminate. Our organization supports programs to educate the public about the right to equal housing opportunities, and to educate the real estate industry about fair housing responsibilities. The best way to avoid potentially discriminatory situations is to be fully educated about the law's requirements. Awareness is the key.
