This block can be used to display market trends based on data from listings that were sold in the last 12 months. You can add this block where you would like on your website using the CMS. It is also present by default on the Listing Detail, Neighborhood, and Market Snapshot pages.

The Market Trends block is displayed by default on the Listing Detail, Neighborhood, and Market Snapshot pages.

In order for the Market Trends block to display data, a site visitor must input some sort of search criteria. If you would like to pre-populate search criteria, you can use the Preset Filter field to do so.
