Real estate giant Zillow Group has been hit with an antitrust lawsuit alleging the company is restraining competition between real estate brokers by making deals with certain brokerages to hide Zillow’s home valuation estimates (“Zestimates”) on the brokerages’ for-sale listings. Whether the suit has legs is yet to be determined, but an antitrust attorney who spoke with Inman about the complaint said he is “not sold” on the claims.
