Where does MARKETrends data come from?

MARKETrends data comes from the CoreLogic and Realist databases. Both MLS and Tax data are provided to create the statistics you see on the site. The Tax data includes the parcels, deeds, foreclosures and AVMs. The MLS data includes listing data for residential sales.

What key stats are available in MARKETrends Premium?

Try out our interactive demo to get a view all the stats available, and more importantly, check out how easy it is to compare various metrics and drill down by housing characteristics. The interactive demo will let you play with the actual product interface, but against a generic location. Note, while most MLSs have every metric that you see in the demo, there are cases where metrics or facet are unavailable for your MLS. For instance, the $/SqFt metric group or foreclosure facet doesn't show up. This is due to the variation in data availability on an MLS-by-MLS basis. For instance, an MLS might not have a required field for short sales, so pricing trends obviously won't be available for that segment. However, the vast majority of metrics and facets are available in every MLS version of MARKETrends Premium.

When are new data and reports released?

Monthly market activity reports are released on the 10th day of each month. If the 10th occurs on a weekend or holiday, the reports will be published on the next business day. Publishing on the 10th allows agents to update their sold listings within a few days after the end of the previous month. It also allows data to be reviewed and cleansed to provide accurate results.   Changes through the 5th of the month are reflected in the prior month's statistics.   However, QTD, YTD, and Yearly reports will reflect all changes up to the 5th of the month of when those reports are calculated.  At the bottom of each report or chart that is published, it states the processed date.

Public records data will be updated on the 10th as well. The sales associated with public records are available within approximately two months (60 days) of their recording in most jurisdictions. For example, if it is March 15th, the sales in public records through December are most likely available.

How do I view stats for a different location in my MLS?

Simply click on the "Change Location" link at the top of the application.  Then begin typing in the county, city or ZIP code and select the location from the dynamic pick-list.  To see a demonstration, click here.

How do I embed a custom chart on my website or blog?

If you want to embed a chart on your site or blog, follow these easy steps:

  1. Choose the EMBED option below the chart. You will get a secondary screen with various options.

  2. Choose the EMBED TYPE. The auto-update feature will allow you to embed the chart and 'set it and forget it'. Each month, the chart will automatically update with new data if that option is chosen. If you are writing a blog and talking about the data in the chart, that's when you might choose the Fixed Date Range Version instead.

  3. Choose the SIZE desired.

  4. Copy and paste the HTML code into your website's editor.

  5. If desired, add a title or paragraph explaining the chart for your customers.

You're all set! Your customers will now have access to the chart you chose. Here's an example:

How do I interpret the dashboard gauges?

Each gauge on the dashboard provides critical info about a key metric for the location selected. It provides a single view of the indicator for the most recent month and how it compares with the 5-year minimum for that month, the 5-year maximum for that month and the 5-year average for that month.  Due to the seasonal nature of real estate statistics, the ability to compare stats vs. the same period in the past is a great way to gauge market health. 

The following graphic should help you understand the key points of our gauges:

Why is the Tax Sales Price not available? (Non-Disclosure States)

There are currently fifteen (15) states that are non-disclosure states.  Due to this, the sales price information cannot be displayed. This affects information such as median sales price, over/under comparisons as well as $/sqft charts. The states with non-disclosure are: Alaska, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Mexico, North Dakota, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, and Wyoming.

What happens when a ZIP Code straddles multiple cities?

The US Postal Service (USPS) database is used to determine each ZIP Code and its corresponding city name. When a ZIP Code straddles multiple cities, the USPS standard is followed and the default city name is used on the report. However, the data for the entire ZIP Code is in the report regardless of how many city names may refer to the ZIP Code.
