There have been previous listings of this home in the MLS, the most recent being in 2007, and that listing has since expired without a sale. The tax records show its most recent sale was in 2006.

Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase, or not, in specific neighborhoods.
