Prominent portals choose to drop neighborhood crime data

Citing an interest in preventing racial bias, Redfin, and Trulia all stopped displaying crime data on their portals in 2022. The nation’s most popular real estate portal, Zillow, had not displayed that data. By analyzing the sources of crime data, Redfin, one of the most outspoken members of the movement to remove neighborhood crime data from real estate websites, determined that they included too much potential bias to not reinforce inaccurate and biased real estate search results and information. This is an example of the industry stepping up to improve equity in the housing market, something T3 Sixty fully supports and applauds.
