Our Research Principles:

  1. Zillow Research provides unbiased data and analysis about the housing market in a transparent way. Whenever possible, the team makes code and underlying data available so work can be replicated independently. Methodology is always clearly explained.
  2. Zillow Research is independent of Zillow’s business goals, and is not a revenue center.
  3. Zillow Research is open about how data sources and data quality impact research, and is transparent about potential issues with data used.
  4. Zillow Research benchmarks findings against outside datasets whenever possible to ensure accuracy and appropriate context.
  5. Zillow Research respects the integrity of data and uses it honestly, and never manipulates data to create a desired result. We are data- and fact-driven.
