Steering- Directing prospective buyers or tenants into or away from certain areas on illegal discrimination grounds.

This despicable act of deciding on a minority’s behalf where they should live is of course illegal. When an agent uses a phrase like “You will be comfortable in this neighborhood,” pay close attention to the properties which they may not be making you aware of. The best way to counter this practice if for homebuyers to drive through neighborhoods where they want to live, look for real estate for sale signs, then view the properties.
