RE/MAX LLC has announced a new corporate sponsorship of The LGBTQ+ Real Estate Alliance, shoring up the RE/MAX’s commitment to fair housing for all and promoting LGBTQ+ homeownership. Through this new relationship, RE/MAX agents of all identities will have access to training, resources, and networking as they strive to overcome obstacles around housing that continue to face the LGBTQ+ community.
It has been reported that the LGBTQ+ homeownership rate is currently 49%, far behind the U.S. average of 65%. Through housing policy advocacy and training efforts, the LGBTQ+ Real Estate Alliance strives to change the statistics by ending discrimination and empowering all LGBTQ+ consumers on their journey of homeownership.
Since 2019, RE/MAX has been a member of the Business Coalition for the Equality Act, which supports legislation that would prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity.
