Steering deals with eliminating certain areas based on protected classes (such as race, sex, religion, etc.). So, an agent should not be commenting on the racial makeup of an area or anything like that, but I can say that the area is a bit busy with commercial property nearby.

Hi Martha,
Real estate agents are not allowed to comment on whether or not a neighborhood is good or bad. That is research that you would need to do on your own. There are a Federal Fair Housing Laws that prohibit that from happening. It is up to the individual to make their own determination about a specific area. Should a real estate agent comment on such a thing, it could be steering which is a prohibited act.

Determining how good or bad a school is, or how crime is, or anything else similar needs to be researched on your own.
