Update on NFHA’s Lawsuit Against Redfin
Washington, D.C. — The National Fair Housing Alliance (NFHA) has released the following statement on its ongoing lawsuit against Redfin:
“In October 2020, the National Fair Housing Alliance (NFHA) and other fair housing organizations filed a federal lawsuit against Redfin alleging that the company’s minimum home price policy discriminates against sellers and buyers of homes in communities of color in many metropolitan areas – in effect redlining. Redfin’s CEO responded to the lawsuit acknowledging that the issues raised in it are ‘important’ to the company. Leadership from both organizations have since been in contact to further discuss the concerns brought to light by NFHA. Given that this lawsuit is still ongoing, we are limited in what details we can share about discussions between the two parties. However, we plan to share additional information as soon as it becomes available. Click here to learn more about the two-year investigation that led to our lawsuit.”
