The National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) released its first Profile of Lesbian, Gay and Bisexual (LGB) Buyers and Sellers Wednesday in Washington, D.C.

Using four years of information collected during the NAR’s Profile of Buyers and Sellers, the association used information provided by consumers who identified themselves as LGB.

“The American Dream of homeownership traverses across the spectrum of our society — including sexual orientation — and REALTORS® always have and will continue to advocate so that anyone who wants to, and is capable of purchasing a home, is able to do so,” said NAR President John Smaby. “REALTORS® have always embraced the significance of the protections secured by the Fair Housing Act, and have encouraged efforts to extend them by amending our Code of Ethics in 2009 to prohibit discriminations based on sexual orientation and gender identity.”
