What is housing discrimination?

It is different treatment given to some home seekers because of their Race, Religion, Gender, Color, National Origin or Handicap. Giving someone a different sale or rental price to keep them out of the house or telling them it's been taken when it's really available are examples of discrimination. Denying anyone the use of a real estate broker or suggesting to a possible habitant of a property that they might be happy elsewhere are also forms of discrimination.
