Housing Search Process and Residential Segregation: Talk by Hannah Lee (04/23/2021)

On Friday, April 23 at 2.30 pm, CSDE Trainee Hannah Lee will present her dissertation research on housing search and residential segregation in the Sociology Department’s SocSem. Recent research suggests that in addition to ongoing, overt racial housing discrimination and unequal access to resources, multiple subtle housing search processes are racially stratified and contribute to persistent racial residential segregation. Yet, little prior research has examined these processes. In this presentation, Lee will discuss findings from a co-authored paper using novel survey data collected by Redfin from housing consumers across the United States to investigate racial differences in the subtle ways that individuals use online housing search tools and identify real estate agents to assist them through the housing search process. The zoom link for the talk can be found here. (read more)
