This act also protects against discrimination in advertising, financing, appraisal, and real estate services.

This law states that all citizens of the United States shall have the same right, in every state and territory as is enjoyed by white citizens thereof to inherit, purchase, lease, sell, hold, and convey real estate personal property.
