Zillow has been cranking up its research on discrimination within the U.S. real estate industry. 

In its latest look into the high tensions between races that have infiltrated almost all aspects of American life, the company found that in all of the country’s largest metro areas, 90% of single-family detached houses are inhabited by white people. In fact, this disparity is the highest in New York.

A Zillow analysis of American Community Survey data found that when it comes to these single-family detached homes, they are 90% more segregated than areas with a more diverse inventory of housing supply.

Across the country, data shows that when it comes to a household headed by a non-white person, the probability that they rent is 14% higher. 

We recently reported that Zillow found discrimination is rampant when it comes to applying for a home. And the disparity between white and black homeowners is telling. This report shows that homes that are more affordable are likely to be inhabited by non-white families and individuals.
