Zillow Group January 2021 IR Roundup

In January, Zillow released data recapping one of the most historic years in housing and why we can expect the demand surge to continue into 2021. 

Zillow also announced the expansion of its Local Legal Protections tool with a new data-powered resource designed to inform renters about whether their state or local laws offer protection from discrimination based on how they pay the rent, whether they use wages from their job, a housing choice voucher (commonly known as Section 8), or alternate forms of income, such as alimony or disability.

See below for a roundup of other corporate announcements and media coverage for Zillow Group from the month of January.
